December 3, 2020 | Virtual Event | 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.

Latin Fever Ball is the LAA’s premier fundraising event. Held every fall during Hispanic Heritage Month, Latin Fever Ball is Atlanta’s most anticipated gala. This one-of-a-kind event raises funds for a variety of LAA programs and services that empower Latinos to adapt, integrate and thrive. Latin Fever Ball is now in its 32nd year.

Latin Fever Ball is at heart a fun and festive evening featuring a three-course dinner, an open bar, signature libations, “la hora loca” and dancing to live Latin rhythms. The ball attracts 700 guests, including top civic and business leaders and philanthropists. Recent Latin Fever Ball themes have included The Wonders of Latin America, Puerto Rico: la isla del encanto, etc. For the last decade, Latin Fever Ball has been held at the InterContinental Buckhead.

This year, we will present a virtual Latin Fever Ball on Thursday, Dec. 3, 2020 with UPS as presenting sponsor. The 2020 Latin Fever Ball chairs are Rudy and Lois Beserra and Sam and Robin Zamarripa. Sam is currently the CEO of Intent Solutions and Chairman of the media enterprise, Mundo Hispanico. Rudy is the Senior Vice President at Vensure Latin Affairs. We are thrilled to have our annual gala chaired by such passionate leaders of the Latino community.

Please stay tuned for more information and please make sure to follow us on social media.

The Latin Fever Ball Chair, an honorary role, is the face and figurehead of the gala. Typically a well-known public figure or business leader in the greater Atlanta community, the Chair represents Latin Fever Ball publicly and works through his/her personal and professional networks to generate support and promote the event.

This year, we are honored to present Rudy Beserra and wife Lois, and Sam Zamarripa and wife Robin as our Latin Fever Ball Chairs.
