"Our gala dinner was a memorable evening and Chris is owed a great deal of thanks for his exceptional work. As co-host of the dinner, Chris set and maintained a perfect tempo mixing humor, candor, and seriousness so that our guests, including Members of Congress, and honorees, felt welcomed, entertained, and informed. Chris impressed me with his preparation, flexibility, impromptu thinking (in Washington, DC, we are at the mercy of the Capitol's call for votes!), and most importantly, his volunteerism. Every minute of his engagement with us was pro bono -- and for that I will be ever indebted to him."
Omar A. Vargas, 2009 Hispanic National Bar Foundation Gala Dinner Chairman
"We have graciously been the recipient of Chris's generosity, talent, and good-natured spirit for our annual AIDS Walk Las Vegas and Black & White Party events. The AIDS Walk has attracts more than 85000 participants annually and Chris has kept them entertained and energized as our official emcee for the past two years. At the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, The Joint venue, our Black & White Party guests where again delighted to have Chris's support as our emcee for our very avant-garde event. He is genuine and amazing in his continued support of the HIV community of Southern Nevada. TOGETHER WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE!."
Jennifer Morss, Executive Director, Aid for Aids of Nevada
"Chris has demonstrated his loyalty and commitment to serve our community. He has been proactive in searching for opportunities to engage and make a difference in the lives of so many Nevadans. I have had the privilege of working with Chris on several volunteer projects within the Hispanic community, and in every occasion he has embraced them with professionalism and enthusiasm. We are a better community because of quality people like Chris."
