Los Angeles, CA – February 23, 2013 – A virtual constellation of stars mingled with flutes of Moët & Chandon in hand last night at this year’s National Hispanic Media Coalition Impact Awards Gala to toast to the most loved champagne house’s annual philanthropic initiative, which has benefited more than sixty organizations since its inception four years ago. For every glass raised by an honoree on the red carpet, Moët & Chandon makes a donation to the celebrity’s charity of choice. It is a chance for Hollywood to give back on an occasion that feted the most talented Latinos in the industry.
During the 16th annual NHMC Impact Awards on February 22, 2013, honorees included Mario Lopez, Lana Parilla, Tony Hernandez, Gina Torres, Michael Peña, Morena Baccarin, and John Leguizamo. Joining Moët & Chandon in “Toast for a Cause,” Morena Baccarin raised a glass donating to her charity International Rescue Committee and Gina Torres for her charity FINCA.
As the accomplished guests and honorees posed for “Toast for a Cause, “ Moët & Chandon hosted a bevy of Latino talent in the NHMC Impact Awards Gala Champagne Reception. In addition to the honorees above, attendees included the evening’s MCs Aimee Garcia and Tony Plana, and guests Alana de la Garza, Fernanda Romero, Antonio Jaramillo, Patricia Rae, and Valenzia Algarin.
