LOCAL LEADER POISED TO WIN $25,000 GRANT FOR A COMMUNITY PROJECT
Angela Rosas of Chicas Latinas de Sacramento is in the running to become the Coors Light 2014 Líder of the Year
SACRAMENTO, CA (September 16, 2014) – Angela Rosas, CEO & Founder of Chicas Latinas de Sacramento, has been selected as one of 12 Coors Light Líderes for her exceptional contributions to the Latino community. The public can visit www.coorslightlideres.com now through October 30 to vote for Angela Rosas. If she is chosen as the Coors Light Líder of the Year, Chicas Latinas de Sacramento will receive a $25,000 grant to develop and implement a community leadership program in partnership with Coors Light.
“I am honored to be chosen for this year’s Coors Light Líderes program,” said Angela Rosas, founder of Chicas Latinas de Sacramento. “Coors Light has made a commitment to the Hispanic community by investing in emerging Latino leadership, and I am grateful for the opportunity to win a grant for Chicas Latinas de Sacramento. This grant will allow us to serve our community in a way we have yet been able to. I hope the public votes for me in support of our nonprofit’s mission, dedicated members, and our future of continued service in the Sacramento community.”
Angela Rosas was chosen as one of the 2014 Coors Light Líderes because of her dedicated and continued leadership in the Sacramento community. Her philanthropic journey started in her youth and has since inspired a culture of volunteerism and civic engagement by founding Chicas Latinas de Sacramento in 2009, a volunteer cultivation nonprofit which provides local Latinas with an outlet to give in their community, explore their culture, and become leaders in their own right; all while providing local organizations which serve the local latino population with volunteer support.
“Coors Light has a long history of supporting the communities we impact, and we are proud to highlight and reward emerging Latino leaders who are making a difference,” said Alberto Senior, director, community commerce and partnerships for MillerCoors. “All 12 Líderes exemplify determination and commitment, not only in their professional careers, but in helping others.”
If chosen as the Coors Light 2014 Líder of the Year, Angela Rosas and Chicas Latinas de Sacramento will use the $25,000 grant to implement a youth leadership program to inspire a new generation of philanthropy, civic engagement and leadership.
“Philanthropy is the most accessible doorway to awareness, leadership, action, and ultimately change,” said Rosas. “The sooner, and younger, a culture of Latino volunteerism is introduced — the sooner we’ll be able to see the benefits Latino leadership can bring to our community.”
Since 2006, the Coors Light Líderes program has raised awareness and highlighted the achievements of national and local leaders within the Hispanic community. The program offers up-and-coming Latino professionals leadership tools, counsel and networking opportunities.
