The Association of Latino Professionals for America - Empowering Latino Leaders will host a delicious Valentine's Day Fundraiser benefitting American Heart Association on Monday.

The Valentine's Day Fundraiser, co-hosted by The Vidette, will be from 5:30 to about 7:30 p.m. or whenever the group runs out of materials. The fundraiser will be held in Schroeder Hall room 244.

Everyone will be able to decorate their own tasty treats and different stations during the festive fundraiser. Participants will purchase tickets, and each ticket is good for a treat from each station. 

The treats include chocolate-covered strawberries and other chocolate-covered goodies, cupcakes and cookies.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will be donated to the American Heart Association to help fund cardiovascular research.

The Association of Latino Professionals for America's mission is to give members the tools they need to create an impact on the world and help expand Latino leadership in the global workforce.
