The Puerto Rican Bar Association of Florida will hold its Fourth Annual Dinner Gala November 18 at 7 p.m., at the Hyatt Pier 66, 2301 S.E. 17th Street Causeway, in Ft. Lauderdale.

Supreme Court Justice Raoul G. Cantero III will be the evening's keynote speaker. Other guest speakers will include the 17th Circuit Judge Pedro Dijols and Florida Bar President-elect Francisco R. Argones.

The PRBA is a statewide organization created to promote the advancement of Puerto Ricans in the legal profession and further integrate the Puerto Rican community into the professional and civic fabric of Florida. Membership is open to all Florida licensed attorneys in good standing, law students, paralegals, and others.

"With close to one million people in Florida of Puerto Rican heritage, the Puerto Rican Bar Association looks forward to continuing to expand its membership to represent the thriving Puerto Rican communities across the state," said Hector Rivera, PRBA president. "Our agenda may be ambitious, but both the leadership and its members wholeheartedly embrace the challenge with fervor and a great sense of purpose."

Other PRBA board members include Luis "Tony" Cabassa, regional vice-president for the Second District; Yesenia Collazo, regional vice-president for the Third District; Jose Negroni, regional vice-president for the Fourth District; Luis Figueroa, regional vice-president for the Fifth District; Nydia Menendez, treasurer; and Natasha Cortes, secretary.
