PuertoRicans.Com - Exclusive Special Edition

As Hispanic Heritage celebrations continue in September and October, last week I got a phone call that a friend needed a ride to the Human Resources Administration's (HRA) 16th Annual Heritage Celebration. It just so happens that the friend needing a ride was no other than the legendary "Maestro del Quatro" Yomo Toro.

This annual event was held at DC 37's headquarters at 125 Barclay Street which is only one block away from the World Trade Center. The event's entertainment was headlined by Willie Villega & Entre Amigos with special invited guests, Yomo Toro, & Joe Bataan. Also performing were Mirror Image & Lil Rose with the duo of 950.

I wish to commend the entire heritage committe of HRA for a really wonderful event, and thank them for the manner in which they welcomed and accommodated me. Great celebration!
