Rigo Chacon and The National Hispanic University: Fundraising Tardeada

Release Date: April 22, 1999 (draft)

Television news anchorman Rigo Chacon (KGO-TV channel 7), and The National Hispanic University (NHU) will be coming together on May 15, 1999, 4:00-7:30pm, for a fundraising tardeada (afternoon festivity) to benefit the University. The event will be taking place at the home of Rigo Chacon in San Jose. There he will be donating the use of his home and the live entertainment, a mariachi band, provided for all the guests attending. All those in the surrounding community who made the necessary donation to attend will be joined by Dr. Roberto Cruz, President of The National Hispanic University, and Rigo Chacon. All proceeds will benefit The National Hispanic University.

This will be the second tardeada to be hosted by Rigo Chacon. Last year's event was a successful fundraiser, making those who previously attended anxious to join in the festivities this May.

The National Hispanic University is an independent, nationally accredited, non-profit institution of higher education that was authorized to grant degrees in 1981 by the California Department of Education, Office of Private Post-secondary and Vocational Education. The University offers degree programs in business, liberal studies, education, and computer science at the Associate and Bachelor's levels. The University also sponsors various extended programs that address the educational needs of K-12 within the community.
