On Saturday, June 22nd, on the grounds of the Greater Milford Boys and Girls Club the 8th annual 2013 Hispanic Expo and Job Fair took place. Delmarva Broadcasting Company’s LaExitosa 930 AM radio station presented the Expo to the Delmarva area, where the Hispanic community has grown dramatically in the past few years.

“The Hispanic Expo and Job Fair provides a day of fun, entertainment and community for Hispanic families,” commented Mike Kazala, Regional General Manager of Delmarva Broadcasting Company. “This event helps to connect the Hispanic community with the many community service and support groups that can play a vital role in making life more meaningful and enjoyable for Hispanics in Delaware.”

The Expo featured vendors including retail, employment, opportunities, and education. Live entertainment was provided by “Los Monstros” and Exitosa’s personalities Rafael Orlando and Cristian Tijerino were on hand to meet and greet attendees. According to Kazala, over 1,100 individuals were in attendance.

“We hope those families who attended left with a greater sense of community.  We hope they came away with valuable information that can better their lives,” stated Mike. “We also  hope the bond between our listeners and our station’s personalities grew even stronger.”

The Mexican and Guatemalan consulates were on site providing information and government services to individuals that made appointments. With over 800 appointments scheduled, the consulates were engaged with event goer throughout the day.

“The Mexican and Guatemalan consulates provided valuable passport and visa services right to the [Hispanic] community,” stated Kazala. “Based upon the success we saw by having the two consulates present, we plan to expand this effort by inviting more consulates to next year’s event.”

Delmarva Broadcasting Company’s LaExitosa is hopeful that the expo gave the Hispanic community information in many different areas geared toward employment, medical and family needs as well as fun. Kazala also commented that having the event on the grounds of the Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club location gave many people a better sense of all of the valuable resources they have available to them right here in Milford.
