New York, NY, October 29, 2010—

El Museo del Barrio Young International Circle (YIC)
held its annual benefit on Thursday, October 28

 The glamorous event celebrated Halloween Latino Style with
 a Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) themed bash.
El Museo’s Gala Chairman Yaz Hernandez, along with Benefit Chairs Coromoto Atencio and Gabriel Rivera-Barraza, greeted over 400 guests including Fabiola Beracasa, actor Rodrigo Cuevas, Peter Davis, model Liliana Dominguez, Miss USA Rima Fakih, actress Melissa George, artist Alex Hank, Luisana Mendoza, Bibhu Mohapatra, Miss Universe Jimena Navarrete, Yaz Hernandez, Belen Hudson, Gemma Kahng, Luisana Mendoza, artist Gabriel Orozco, make-up artist Alexa Rodulfo, jewelry designers Annette and Phoebe Stephens, and actor Marco Zunino.

The Honorary Committee included Christian Cota, Carlos Campos, Liliana Dominguez, Luisana Mendoza, Karla Martinez, Brian Reyes, Alexa Rodulfo, Fabiola Arias, Raul Melgoza, and Bibhu Mohapatra.
The evening’s festivities, one of the most enchanting and gregarious in the month of October, featured colorful costumes, music, dancing, and a live presentation by the Calpulli Mexican Dance Company, performing an Aztec dance ritual echoing Día de los Muertos, the traditional Mexican celebration that honors loved ones that have passed away. The venue featured altars displaying special food and flowers, and colorful masks were provided to the guests.
This year's benefit proceeds went towards El Museo's art initiative El Museo’s Bienal: The (S) Files, the popular biennial that showcases the most innovative, cutting-edge work being produced by emerging Latino and Latin American artists currently working in the greater
 New York area.

YIC was pleased to partner with Alamos Wines and Dewar’s as the official sponsors for its celebration. In addition, Bacardi generously donated spirits from its portfolio of premium brands to host full bars for the evening.
