PUENTE celebrated its 30th Anniversary on June 20, 2012 in Sacramento, California.
A festive evening included performances by ballet folklorico "Costa de Oro" and Mariachi Tonantzin la Familia.
Puente received proclamations from the Legislative Black, Latino and Asian/Pacific Islander Caucuses as well as a special recognition
from Congressman Joe Baca, 43rd Congressional District.
Co-Founder Patricia McGrath spoke about Puente's beginnings while Executive Director, Frank Garcia guided us to imagine Puente's future.
Student speakers Jorge De La Concha from Foothill College and Cindy Quiralte from Fresno City College shared their stories of challenges, successes, and achievement.
