Nominations Sought for Hispanic Men’s Recognition Event, 4th Annual Adelante Awards

LUBBOCK, TX (NEWS RELEASE) – The following is a news release from Los Hermanos Familia:

Los Hermanos Familia of Lubbock reminds you that the 4th Annual “Adelante Awards,” a recognition program that showcases and honors Hispanic men in the Lubbock community, who excel in their careers and volunteer efforts, is still seeking nominees.

The organization made up of men, women, and youth are committed to their objective of Strengthening Families, Building Community.

Adelante, a Spanish word that means onward, describes Hispanic men who work tenaciously for the greater good of their community that have made, or are making an impact on past, current, and future generations.

Thirteen individuals will be selected by a blind committee in the following categories: Business Owner, Medical, Professional, First Responder, Education, Military/Veteran, Church, Media, Civic/Volunteer, Athlete/Athletics Supporter, Art & Entertainment, College Young Adult, and Youth.

In addition, a Lifetime Achievement Award (LAA) will honor an individual who has continuously paved the trail for others. The 2018 LAA is the only award selected by the Los Hermanos Familia Planning Committee.

Members of the community can submit a nomination for an individual in the respective category, and an independent, anonymous panel of judges will determine the recipients.

The Adelante Award program is an initiative of Los Hermanos Familia who became a nonprofit organization in June 2014 and was established in 2008. The organization began with the annual, “Vamos a Pescar, Let’s Go Fishing” event, which uses fishing as a hook to bring families together. The event was inspired when a last request to go fishing with the entire family was filled by Frank Garcia, whose father, the late Gonzalo Garcia Sr., made a day before his death. In 2015, it drew almost 5,000 participants and is free to the public.

The event is co-chaired by Christy Martinez-Garcia & Frank Garcia, co-founders of Los Hermanos Familia.

Los Hermanos Familia proudly encourages the public to consider nominating individuals from their organization, business, workplace, students or church communities whom they believe deserve such recognition. Nomination DEADLINE is April 18, 2018. Please complete the online application at

Awards will be presented at the Adelante Awards Banquet and reception to be held Friday, May 4, 2018. To be a premier sponsor, or sponsor a table, or for limited ticket information, please contact us at (806) 792-1212. To learn more about Los Hermanos Familia, visit
