La Liga Del Barrio

Liga Gala

Our Gala will take place on Friday, April 29, 2022.

 The Gala, which was supposed to take place in April 29, 2020 to celebrate Liga’s 20th Anniversary, was postponed due the Covid pandemic.

 

The Gala will represent a celebration of serving nearly 10,000 youth and their families for over 20 years in the Latino community. Honoring Alumni from over the 20 plus years of service, many of whom now hold a Doctorate in Pharmacy like Samuel Reveron, are playing overseas professional basketball like Jose Ortiz (only Liga Player whose jersey was retired in a ceremony attended and presented by Governor Tom Wolf), Lateef Scott, an Amature Muay & MMA Champion, Raymond A. Alvarez, a Phila Police Officer, Malcolm Welles and Radame Rivera, Jr., educators, to name a few.

The Gala will be preceded by a Silent Auction on Thursday, April 28, 2022 in the same venue at the Felt Factory by Romano’s. The production of the Gala and the Silent Auction is being produced by Duarte Entertainment (DE); Liga’s story has begun, a Liga Podcast by DE (https://spoti.fi/3LVixcZ) was launched on on February 22, 2022 with episode one telling the story of La Liga dating back to January 2000.
