Over 500 people were in attendance for the 2018 for the NY Hispanic Clergy Organization Annual Banquet. There were five Honorees and many more elected officials in attendance.

The five Honorees were Revsa Meily De a Olomo, Rev. Oscar Giron,Licda. Maria Lusia Tifa De Wally, Rev. Dr. Fermin Medina Colon, and Rev. Roberto Lopez. The elected officials that were in attendance included Councilman Rev. Ruben Diaz Sr. (who also was the Master of Ceremonies), New York State Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul and State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. New York City Council members Fernando Cabrera and Rafael Salamanca, and New York State Assembly members Marcos Crespo, Victor Pichardo, and Luis Sepulveda.

Councilman Rev. Diaz Sr. opened the event, and throughout the day introduced various members of the clergy. The National Anthem was sung wonderfully by Evelyn Pichardo, and the Invocation was given by Rev. Bryon Castillo. There was a good mix of speeches by the elected officials and giving out all the citations and proclamations to the honorees.
