The HOLA Awards are considered the most prestigious accolades dedicated to honor Latino Artists in the East Coast of the United States. Past awards have been given to Antonio Banderas, Rubén Blades, Danny Burstein, Bobby Cannavale, Alfonso Cuarón, Nilo Cruz, Benicio Del Toro, Héctor Elizondo, Lupita Ferrer, Andy Garcia, Moises Kaufman, John Leguizamo, Bianca Marroquin, Lin-Manual Miranda, Sara Montiel, Alfred Molina, Pedro Pacal, Rosie Pérez, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Mercedes Ruehl and David Zayas.

The Hispanic Organization of Latin Actors was founded in 1975 by a core group of Latino actors working in New York to address the inequities created by the casting system that underemployed Hispanic actors and relegated Latino characters to negative stereotypes. HOLA is dedicated to expanding the presence of Hispanic artists in entertainment and media through the cultivation, education, and recognition of Latin artists. HOLA has served as a crucial resource to the NY casting community for more than 45 years by hosting Hispanic talent database available to casting directors and agents, in addition to distributing casting notices to our members. HOLA also serves as a resource for immigrant actors to gaining access to legal documentation in the United States.

Admission tickets for this Benefit are limited and being sold on HOLA'S website
