This year marks the 11th Annual Visión – a look at life behind the scenes, Saratoga County Economic Opportunity Council’s annual benefit for the Latino Community Advocacy Program, which addresses the unique needs of the Spanish-speaking immigrant population in Saratoga County. Through the Latino Community Advocacy Program we are able to offer translation and advocacy services, access to medical attention, legal services, English as a Second Language Classes, and other educational programs and services designed to assist families, address their basic needs and extend the EOC’s mission of promoting economic self-sufficiency.
This event will be held on Tuesday, August 7, 2018 from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m. at the famous Saratoga Race Course Clubhouse Porch.
Visión – a look at life behind the scenes is an annual highlight of the Saratoga racing season, showcasing stirring artwork, fabulous food, a premier setting, and the opportunity to celebrate the many individuals who help make Saratoga special. The event features an opening reception for new photos to EOC’s photography project “Estamos Aquí” (We are Here) which is a curated exhibit and ongoing proj¬ect in which Latino immigrants document their everyday lives and present their own photographs in order to share their experiences of living and working in the Saratoga Springs area. Through this inspiring photo collective, we gain a unique insight into the lives of those who contribute so meaningfully to our community.
