Quinta Gala de la rosa del desierto

La quinta gala de la entrega de la “Rosa del Desierto”, resultó todo un acontecimiento para la comunidad de Ciudad Juárez y El Paso.

En esta edición, cuatro importantes personajes de la localidad fueron galardonados con la presea, diseñada por el afamado escultor chihuahuense Sebastián, que distingue el talento y la solidaridad de la gente de esta gran frontera.

Fue el mismo Sebastián, Carmen Becerra, directora de Border Heritage y Ben Arriola, director de Southwest Universty, los anfitriones de este singular evento que avala la labor y trayectoria de los condecorados.

Recibieron el premio:

  • Eduardo Orozco, del ramo de emprendimiento empresarial, líder en la industria restaurantera.
  • Dr. David Yates, prominente médico que ha dejado una marca indeleble en el panorama de la atención de niños con problemas craneales y deformidades faciales, de labio y paladar hendido.
  • José Luis Ordóñez, destacado tenor y exponente del arte y la cultura alrededor del mundo.
  • Pedro Zaragoza Delgado, filántropo, ejemplo de compromiso y retribución a la comunidad.

Cabe destacar, que este año, la cena estuvo a cargo del Culinary Institute de Southwest University, y gracias al aporte de los asistentes, los ingresos beneficiaron a la fundación FEMAP y sus unidades de servicio. Esta institución creada hace 50 años en Ciudad Juárez, para mejorar la calidad de vida de los fronterizos en condiciones vulnerables.

A lo largo de cinco años, más de una decena de personajes han sido elogiados con este premio, lideres sociales en diferentes ámbitos que, con el alma puesta en su quehacer, enaltecen nuestra tierra.
