The sixth annual Remembering Cesar Chavez Breakfast was very successful. Two hundred plus people bought tickets and were in attendance. Every year this breakfast in honor of Cesar Chavez continues to grow. The event was enjoyed by all. The Cesar Chavez High School and the Fremont School Mariachis played for the event, and as usual they were awesome. The sixth annual Remembering Cesar Chavez Breakfast to honor civil rights and farm labor leader Cesar Chavez took place on March 26, 2016 at the Mexican Heritage Center & Gallery. A diverse group of 200 plus people attended the breakfast in downtown Stockton. This yearly breakfast is in keeping with the mission of the Mexican Heritage and Gallery which is to educate and to promote art and culture to current and future generations. This breakfast is one of three fundraising events the MHC&G has throughout the year to raise funds to keep its doors open to the public. Monthly art exhibits, and cultural celebrations take place throughout the year.
The Mexican Heritage Center & Gallery continues to enrich the community with art, culture, and educational programs. Dedicated artists, educators, and interested members of the community volunteer their time, and work together to educate the public of the rich tradition, heritage and culture.
