ROSARIO DAWSON AND CARLOS SANTANA ARE ALMA AWARD WINNERS

Sunday, September 29, 2013 - Sin City star Rosario Dawson and legendary guitarist Carlos Santana were among the stars feted at the annual American Latino Media Arts (Alma) Awards in California on Friday (27Sep13).

The actress and the rocker were presented with the Outstanding Commitment

to Cause and Community Award for their philanthropy at the ceremony, which

celebrates Latin entertainers.

Taking to the stage, Dawson told the audience at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, "I accept this award knowing that despite continuous challenges, new

and old ones, challenges which could easily dampen the most optimistic of hearts, we have strived, we have pled and we have given it our all to push through those obstacles because the grand and attainable visions we have

for ourselves and our communities far outweigh any challenge that come (sic) before us."

Other Alma Award recipients included the Latino cast members of U.s. Tv drama Dexter, and Dawson's Sin City director Robert Rodriguez, who took home

the Anthony Quinn Award for Industry Excellence.

The prizegiving, hosted by Eva Longoria and Mario Lopez, also featured a special tribute to Jenni Rivera, who died last December after her plane went down in Mexico.
