ATLANTA, Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Storage Post Self Storage is sponsoring the first annual Duricimo Latin Awards in Yonkers, New York. Storage Post pledged a silver sponsorship to the event, which is the first Latin award ceremony of its kind in Westchester County.
The Duricimo Latin Awards take place on September 16, 2011 at The Ukrainian Ballroom in Yonkers, NY. The event honors and awards local community youth who aspire to become artists and performers. Awarded individuals are chosen by a public vote months prior to the event.
"As part of the community, Storage Post's values encourage all locations to participate in local events. When we heard about the Duricimo Latin Awards, we were happy to sponsor and support the vitality and talent in Latin-American artistic youth," said Ken McGuire, Storage Post's store manager at Yonkers.
The mission of the Duricimo Latin Awards ceremony is to award local values and personal achievements within the Latin-American community. The event is meant to draw young people from the street and encourage their dreams and ambitions in an artistic career. Award recipients receive a personalized crystal plaque commemorating the event; however, the event organizers hope to offer scholarships in future years.
In addition to awarding local youth, the Duricimo Latin Awards also supports the organization Family, Advocacy, Counseling, Education and Support (FACES) for women battling cancer. The event's "Pink Carpet," on which all attendees will enter the award ceremony, symbolizes its support for the cause.
