Sangria con SQACC:
On May 8, 2008, The Sofia Quintero Art & Cultural Center (SQACC) hosted a Sangria Fiesta at 1225 Broadway, Toledo. Shown above are some of the participants.
The Center is a 501 (c ) 3 non-profit Latino art organization, founded in 1996 and is founded after a daughter of migrant farmworkers. Sofia was the first Latina in her family to complete high school and graduate from college (The University of Toledo). Sofia became the first person of Latino descent to be voted into public office in Toledo, as a member of the Toledo Board of Education.
SQACC hosts numerous events and programs such as El Día de los Muertos, the After-School Art Program, the Youth Art Show, the Youth Work’s Program, and the Youth Boat Building Project. It also boasts a Community Garden, adjacent to the building.
On November 1, 2008, Latin Grammy Award Nominee Marta Gómez returns to the Center to celebrate El Día de los Muertos.
