Los Angeles, CA (December 2016) – On December 14, 2016, Gran Centenario – a tequila rich in heritage, fueled by independence and tied to a proud culture – launched its Angels on Earth 2017 program in Hollywood. Hosted by heralded actor Edgar Ramirez of Hands of Stone, Zero Dark Thirty and Joy the annual event celebrated those who give back.
Over the years, Gran Centenario and the “Angels on Earth” program have partnered with organizations across education, the arts and neighborhood groups to honor real life “Angels” and individuals for their acts of service. Past supporters have included Christina Milian, Ryan Phillippe and Brody Jenner.
A UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, Edgar Ramirez is a humanitarian actively involved in various
charities, including He for She, a solidarity campaign for the advancement of women.
Considered an “Angel” for his contributions, this year Edgar hosted the Angels on Earth 2017
kick-off event, which featured an array of real life Angels. Guests, including Girlfriends star
Golden Brooks and Jayson Blair of Whiplash and The New Normal, were encouraged to give
back to the local community by simply bringing an unwrapped gift for those in need and sign up
for a volunteer beach cleanup initiative with Heal the Bay on February 18, 2017, giving them
the chance to become “Angels” themselves. The intimate event was able to recruit 80 people to
donate 1-3 hours of their time to the project. https://healthebay.org/.
