Center For Latino Progress – CPRF, formerly known as CT Puerto Rican Forum, opened its door in 1978, and it continues to be the only Latino-serving workforce development agency in Northern CT. The proceeds of the Starlight Gala enable CPRF to attain resources that will allow the organization to provide Latino families with the know-how, tools and resources that are necessary to succeed both personally and professionally in a very complex society. This fundraiser provides critical funding for programs, services, and advocacy work.
