On March 27, 2014 Jose Acosta was awarded the Most Impacting Entrepreneur Award by Latino Show Magazine at Red Carpet Gala event at Boulevard Theater in Jackson Heights New York. Picture to the right Jose and his Wife Orsola with Award after event.
The Event was Hosted by the lovely Stacy McCosky and the charming NYC Socialite Eric Andrew and with phenomenal live performances from Bachata Heightz, Pumva, Eli Jas, and Fatima LaFantastica, the Boulevard Theater was filled with a melodious joy as special tributes were paid to the following incredible individuals:
Leila Cobo with the Woman of the Year Award, Kika Rocha as Best Latin Fashion Editor, Adriana Vargas as Best Latin News TV Host 2013, John Sepulveda as Best Latin Event Producer, Miss USA 2013 Erin Brady and talent director Esther Swan receiving the Special Recognition for Representation of True Beauty awarded to the Miss Universe Organization, Marco Maranghello was recipient to the Top Royal Celebrity Hair Stylist in NY Award, while Father Luis Echeverri was merited for his Contribution to the Colombian Community. Ioma-Paris, represented by Francisco Diaz, took home the Best Beauty Product 2013 Award, while Bachata Heightz was recognized as the Top Rising Musical Group followed by Jason Graciano as a Business Leader in the Queens Community. Alex Sensation was named the Best Latin DJ in NYC, Wakama the Best Latin Artist Promoter and Lucas Pina the Top Entertainment Executive Award.
Although all our nominees are true winners in our eyes, one had to represent in each category as the leader. Cesar Galindo took home the honor for Best Latin Designer 2013, while Marco Pena brought the Miami heat to take back the award for Best Hair Stylist 2013. Jose Acosta was the Most Impacting Entrepreneur of 2013 and even more impacting was the gorgeous Audris Rijo who embellished the evening winning recipient of the Best Latin Model 2013 Award. The pumping beats of DJ Mara earned him the Best DJ 2013 Award while French-native Philippe Reynaud was picture perfect in his acceptance of the Best LSM Editorial Photography 2013 Award.
