María C. Sánchez Banquet

For more than 20 years, the Connecticut Institute for Community Development (CICD) Puerto Rican Parade, Inc. (CICD) has recognized well over 100 individuals in memory of our beloved María C. Sánchez for their community leadership, commitment to education and preservation of Puerto Rican arts and culture.

This year, the banquet will take place on Saturday, March 31, 2018 at the Hilton Hartford. Three individuals from our community be honored at the event. You can find the nomination form and a description of each category in the full sponsorship document.

We ask that you help us making this a successful event by identifying nominees to be honored from the community and by investing in the event through a sponsorship, hosting a full table, donating a full scholarship or purchasing tickets.

We cannot accomplish this without your help. 

The deadline for sponsorship investments/advertisements is March 2, 2018. We look forward to speaking to you in the next few weeks to discuss your involvement.
