In 2019, Daniel established this supply drive via the

Young Emerging Leaders to help and support the animals at the Port Arthur Animal Shelter. Along with the help of the queens of the Hispanic Heritage Festival and YEL members, we are able to bring some happiness to these sweet animals during the holiday season. We also promote the page in hopes of getting them adopted to loving homes.

Donation list and information will be posted on or before November 1, 2023.

The past two years, Cruz Events LLC has raffled a Welcome Back to School backdrop for local districts. This year we will be doing something a bit different to support the schools. Praying everyone has a safe and successful school year.

Since 2021, Cruz Events LLC has donated $6,400.00 to support local cat rescues!

These are two of the cat rescues that we have supported over the years in one form or another. Click on their pictures to visit their page for more information.

This is a news article which highlights one of the fundraisers we conducted to help these fur babies.

In The Community

Inaugural - Cruz Events LLC Awards

Marlene Castro - Awarded with the Team Member Dedication - Marlene has been a part of the team even before Cruz Events was what it is now. We appreciate and recognize her dedication to making this venture a successful one.

Joana Green - Awarded with the Event Business of the Year 2023 - Joana has shown her dedication to her business not only in growth, but in sustainability to offer a wide variety of services. She’s a true inspiration to all business owners who have a drive and work ethic for continued success.

Ashley Woodard Arvie - Awarded with the Team Member of the Year 2023 - Ashley has been with us for a few years now and she started as a helper of any task asked of her. Two years ago I told her she would either take over the balloon installs or we would stop offering the service. She agreed to lead it and well, that was the best thing that could have happened. She’s on her way to being the best balloon artist in the state of Texas.

We are in the planing stages for something awesome this year to continue supporting and showcasing the local event-planning industry. Stay tuned for some breaking news that will INSPIRE you. #WeCollaborate #ShopLocal #CruzEvents #CruzEventsInspireAwards #WeCanMakeItSomethingBeautiful
