PADRES Contra El Cáncer will celebrate its Ninth Annual Fund–Raising Gala, “El Sueño De EsperanzaSM” on Thursday September 10, 2009 at the Historic Hollywood Palladium in Hollywood, California. The evening will be presented by FARMERS INSURANCE GROUP (FARMERS), and hosted by Eva Longoria Parker and comedian George Lopez. As is customary, our celebration will pay tribute to the courage and heroism demonstrated every day by extraordinary children and their families. “This celebration is such an inspiring experience not only for me, but for the many friends who share in the joy and the passion of PADRES’ life – saving mission,” said Eva Longoria Parker, who is also the National Spokesperson for PADRES. “I consider the opportunity to serve as a voice for these children and their families as one of my life’s greatest blessings.”
