The Latino Commission on Aids annual event took place at Macy’s Herald Square yesterday. This event was to announce this year’s godmother which is Miss Universe Paulina Vega. This is in anticipation of the annual Cielo Gala which will take place in Cipriani’s like last year. These events are done to raise awareness and prevention to the Latino community in which a lot of information is also provided. Guillermo Chacon is the President of Latino Commission on Aids organization and also gave a beautiful pendant to Paulina Vega as a symbol that she is this year’s madrina.
