ATLANTA (Aug. 25, 2015) — The Latin American Association’s largest annual fundraiser, Latin Fever Ball, will take place on Saturday, Oct. 3, 2015, at the InterContinental Buckhead. Tickets are on sale for $275 each.

UPS, a longtime supporter of the Latin American Association (LAA), is the presenting sponsor of the 27th Annual Latin Fever Ball.

Laura and Rutherford Seydel are this year’s chairs of Latin Fever Ball.

“We are thrilled and honored to be chairs of this amazing event to support the unparalleled work of the Latin American Association,” says Laura Seydel. “Latin Fever Ball is an incredible experience you don’t want to miss!”

Latin Fever Ball is one of Atlanta’s most festive and anticipated black-tie galas. Celebrated during Hispanic Heritage Month, the one-of-a-kind ball is the LAA’s largest annual fundraiser. The gala features a hosted bar, three-course Latin-inspired dinner, live entertainment with Orquesta Nova Sound, as well as live and silent auctions.

The goal is to raise a record $275,000. Funds raised support the LAA’s programs and services in the Latino community. The LAA brings the American dream to life by serving the needs of immigrants from Latin America in metro Atlanta with a full spectrum of services and programs that help families adapt to their new country and integrate into the community. Last year, the work of the LAA impacted more than 40,000 individuals.

This year’s Latin Fever Ball theme is Venezuela: Mágica y Exótica.

UPS is returning this year as presenting sponsor.

“For almost 20 years, the Latin American Association has been a key UPS partner and a vital organization in Georgia providing critical services to families in need and building the resilience and health of our community,” says Eduardo Martinez, president of The UPS Foundation.
