The Latino Student Union (LSU) of the University of Toledo had a successful fundraiser last Saturday at the UT Student Union Auditorium.

The weather cooperated, but if it hadn’t, LSU, for the second year, had a shuttle service to take guests to and from the Student Union.

Both Los Aztecas and Vida didn’t fail to impress the full house, in attendance at this annual, community event.

The Longorias of Los Aztecas played a full set of snappy cumbias. When the speaker system was temporarily shut down due to circuit overload, Vida improvised and entertained the audience with guitar, accordion, and piano.

Vida played two complete sets thereafter. It is easy to see why Vida is up for awards in five categories of the 25th annual Tejano Music Awards, scheduled for March 19th. (See related story on page 4.) Vida was also a 2005 Grammy nominee for Best Tejano Recording; its accordionist, Sunny Sauceda, received the Grammy in a CD he made with David Lee Garza and Joel Gúzman.

Vin Devers car dealership in Sylvania , Ohio , was recognized for being the only gold sponsor, contributing one thousand dollars to the scholarship fund.  In attendance were Mr. Devers, and Latino sales staff Daniel García and Ramón Pérez, who passed out Mercedes hats.

LSU advisor and Toledo City Council Louis Escobar were recognized by the students.

Melinda Sanchez’s Buy and Save Auto Sales Ltd., joined La Prensa and the Spanish American Organization’s annual scholarship drive, called Latino Scholarship day with the Toledo Mud Hens, which is currently scheduled for Sunday, July 17, by contributing one thousand-five hundred dollars.
