Bernie Valdez Awards

BVA 2017 was a huge success! Thank you to all our vendors, sponsors, and honored guests.


Each year, the Colorado Latino Leadership, Advocacy and Research Organization (CLLARO) honors individuals who consistently demonstrate their commitment to supporting the Latino community by hosting an awards event and fundraiser to honor the first Chairman of CLLARO’s board, Bernard “Bernie” Valdez, as well as the long-lasting efforts of community leaders who are improving the lives of Latinos across the state. Award categories include Social Justice, Education, Public Policy, and Community Service.
