Hispanas Organized for Political Equality (HOPE) honored Dodgers broadcaster Alanna Rizzo Thursday as part of HOPE’s 26th annual awards dinner Thursday. She was introduced by Adrian Gonzalez.
Alanna does great work for Time Warner SportsNet LA and is incredibly deserving of the honor.
Taken directly from the release:
HOPE, one of the nation’s leading women’s leadership and advocacy organizations, celebrates Latina leaders in California that have demonstrated leadership and innovation in their respective fields. Rizzo is their “HOPE Rising” honoree.
HOPE board members, corporate sponsors, volunteers and community supporters will come together to celebrate the accomplishments of both Rizzo and “Ray of HOPE” honoree Nathalie Rayes, who currently serves as the U.S. National Public Relations Director for Grupo Salinas. HOPE is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization committed to ensuring political and economic parity for Latinas through leadership, advocacy, and education to benefit all communities and the status of women.
“I am truly honored to be receiving the HOPE Rising Award,” said Rizzo. “When an organization like HOPE, that for 26 years has been working to advance and amplify the voice of Latinas, notices your work and the impact it has on others, it only elevates my commitment to continue to work harder to open the doors for young Latinas that follow in my footsteps.”
Congratulations, Alanna! Keep up the great work!
