On August 26, 2014 Chef Carlos Gaytan, rated the top Mexican chef in the US, volunteered his time to help raise money for scholarships benefiting Latino students in Utah. Invited by Consul Eduardo Arnal, Chef Gaytan - CEO of Chicago’s famed restaurant Mexique - agreed to share his talents for the fundraising event. Hosted by Jorge Fierro at Frida Bistro, the evening included cocktails and a brief program, followed by a six-course meal of rich and unique Mexican dishes prepared by Chef Gaytan. 
All proceeds from the event were donated to the U-DREAM Scholarship Fund. Special thanks to Consul Arnal, Chef Gaytan and Jorge Fierro!

EXHIBIT
Photographs by Lynn Hoffman-Brouse
Interviews by Ann Brewer
The DREAMers exhibit puts a face and a voice to the hopes of the young people whose lives would be impacted by passage of the DREAM Act. Through portraits and written statements, the exhibit showcases the fears and uncertainty these undocumented students encounter on a daily basis, the dreams they have for the future, and the tremendous potential they represent if allowed to participate fully in our society. 
To schedule this exhibit for your school or gallery please contact Ann Brewer at abrewer@educationopps.org or call 801-541-7343.  To view more photos from the exhibit, please visit www.hoffmanbrouse.com.
BOOK - NOW AVAILABLE!!!
The entire exhibit has also been published in a 96 page soft-cover book.  For more information, or to order online, please visit the DREAMers Book page. All proceeds from the sale of this book are donated to the              U-DREAM Scholarship Fund.
