The 13th annual Latina Outreach and Leadership group conference, "Día de La Mujer Hispana" will be held this Saturday at Boot Hill Casino and Resort Conference Center at 1:30 p.m.

The guest speakers for this year's event will be Dr. Jose Velasco, MD, an oncologist and hematologist; motivational speaker Mia Perez will be presenting VIVA; View, Inspiration, Voice, Acceptance and live music will be on hand by El Mariachi Gerardo Ortiz.

The goal of LOL and its members is to educate on health awareness by bridging cultural gaps throughout the community and connect them to the resources as well as making them aware of specific health problems that could occur.

More than 200 women attended last year's event.

The event will have door prizes, donated by many community businesses, a nice meal and entertainment along with the guest speakers.

The cost to attend the event is $5, this helps cover for part of the event expenses.

The LOL group ask that children do not attend the event because it is intended for women to come out, obtain new information and have a great time with each other.
