Join us for our annual Amigos Latinx Gala on Saturday, October 12, 2019 at the campus of Wright State University and enjoy a night of festive music by The Dayton Salsa Project and DJ Stacy Worley, dancing, and an array of Latinx dishes all while supporting the success of Latinx students at Wright State.
The Amigos Latinx Gala is sponsored in part by the Office of Latinx, Asian, and Native American Affairs (LANA), the Wright State Alumni Association through the Amigos Latinos de Wright State Alumni Society, and other community sponsors and stakeholders.
Over the past decade, LANA has been a model for the Midwest to raise the level of educational attainment in the Latinx Community.
LANA strives to enhance the success of Latinx students, the Latinx community, and economic development in the Dayton region. We pride ourselves on playing a critical role in recruiting, educating, retaining, graduating Latino students at Wright State University. Throughout their experience at Wright State and beyond graduation, LANA also connects and empowers Latinx students to get involved in their community and give back to those who have supported them.
In the past year, Wright State University has increased the Latinx student population by 30% with over 500 Latinx students attending Wright State University.
The Amigos Latinx Gala is the signature fundraiser that helps support the mission and work of the Office of Latinx, Asian, and Native American Affairs at Wright State University. By choosing to support the Amigos Latinx Gala, you are ultimately giving back to the broader latinx community in Dayton through the work of LANA. We hope that you will join us and make an impact on the lives of our Latinx Students at Wright State University.
