Hispanic Federation Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with Orlando Leaders

ORLANDO, FL (FNN News) – Thursday evening, elected officials and community leaders gathered for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the Hispanic Federation office in Orlando.

Zoe Colon is the Director of Florida and Southeast Operations for the Hispanic Federation will oversee the Organization’s Orlando office.
