Host Cocktail Reception to Announce 
  El Museo's 15th Annual Gala, May 22nd 2008. 
April 22, 2008 - NYC.  Yaz and Valentin Hernández welcomed guests to their beautiful Park Avenue home for cocktails to announce the upcoming El Museo Gala 2008. 
El Museo's 15th Annual Gala, a Quinceanero, Thursday, May 22, 2008 at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City. 
As it is the Latin American Tradition, El Museo Gala's fifteenth birthday was celebrated in the style of a quinceanero;  this is a coming-of-age party for a daughter turning fifteen.  For this gala, guests were invited to wear white or black (with long gloves and tiara optional).
At the Gala, El Museo will honor Ambassador Paul L. Cejas ans Mrs. Trudy Cejas, Dr. Mario Vargas Llosa, and Mr. Angel Collado-Schwarz of Fundacion Voz del Centro.  Special guests will include Miss Universe, Miyo Mori, Miss Teen USA, Hilary Cruz; and the newly crowned Miss USA, and they will be wearing their tiaras.
El Museo Gala has become one of the most glamorous evenings on the New York social calendar, receiving media coverage throughout the United States and the Latin world.  This elegant evening begins at seven o'clock with a formal reception line and cocktails, followed at eight o'clock by Cipriani's famous cuisine and dancing.  It's a grand occasion but never boring, with guests flying in from two continents.  The evening's goal is to raise one million dollars,a  first for El MUseo's Galas.
This Year's Gala Chairs are Yaz and Valentin Hernández
and Isabel Toledo.
The Gala Vice-Chairs are Estrellita Brodsky, Clarrisa Bronfman, and Carmen Ana Casal de Unanue.  Maya Hernandez, Luisana Mendoza, Jana Pasquel de Shapiro, Carlos Ponce, Samantha Thompson, and Whitney Wolfe are Junior Chairs.
The stellar honorary committee includes Nati Abascal, Jonathan Adler, Gustavo Arango, Jose Solis Betancourt, Tory Burch, Francisco Costa, Christian Cota, Simon Doonan, Alex Gonzales, Agnes Gund, Susan Gutfreund, Carolina Herrera, Candy Pratts Price, Narcisco Rodriguez, Ralph Rucci, Angel Sanchez, Richard Turley, Donatella Versace, Michael Vollbracht, Diane von Furstenberg, and Sarah Wolfe.
El Museo del Barrio was founded in 1969, and is New York's leading Latino cultural institution, representing the diversity of art and culture in all of the Caribbean and Latin America.  El Muuseo has had a significant impact on New York's culture, and is a major stop on Manhattan's Museum Mile on Fifth Avenue.  Currently El Museo is undergoing a $22 million-dollar facelift, which will be completed in the fall of 2009.
