MANHATTAN BEACH, CA–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–February 24, 2003–Latino Family Media, Inc., publishers of Familia Latina and Bebé Latino, will be honoring four Latina mothers in a premiere event called Las Madres de Honor (The Mothers of Honor) at Santa Isabel Church in East Los Angeles on March 15, 2003. Corporate sponsors presenting the awards include General Mills, Care 1st Health Plan, Children’s Tylenol, and others.

Each extraordinary Latina woman will be recognized in one of the following categories: the Corazon Inmigrante (Immigrant Heart) award, given to a mother who has overcome a uniquely challenging immigrant experience; the Mamá de la Comunidad (Mother of the Community) award, honoring a mother who has given back to her community; the Vencedora Victoriosa (Victorious Overcomer) award, given to a mother who has overcome an incredible medical challenge; and the Abuelita Extraordinaria (Extraordinary Grandma) award, honoring a grandmother who has continued giving to those around her even after her own children have grown.

“We think it is critical to honor Latina mothers and to recognize their contributions to their families and their communities,” said Laura Lentz, publisher of Familia Latina and Bebé Latino, and president of Latino Family Media, Inc. “Through this event we can say ‘Thank you’ to these mothers, and recognize their achievements which might otherwise be overlooked.”

The event will take place between 11 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. and will include a brunch and entertainment, as well as gifts supplied to the award recipients and their families by corporate sponsors. Attendance is free, and open to families in the surrounding communities via reservation. Reservations may be made by calling (310) 318-2790, ext. 101.

Each story presented at this ceremony is a celebration of the human spirit – honoring extraordinary Latina women who have overcome tremendous odds for their families and the families around them. These immigrant experiences remind us all of the foundation upon which this country was built; a foundation that continues today, and is critical to the success of the United States.

Latino Family Media, Inc. has been reaching Southern California’s often overlooked, less acculturated Latino families for six years through free Spanish-language parenting publications. Now Latino Family Media, Inc. is honoring extraordinary Latina women through Las Madres de Honor, and featuring their stories in the upcoming March issue of Familia Latina.
