Henry Cárdenas has spent the last 30 years managing and producing some of the largest live entertainment shows and concerts in the United States and across Latin America. He founded Cárdenas Marketing Network (CMN) in 2002 and currently leads an award-winning team to orchestrate innovative campaigns for corporate giants including Anheuser-Busch, Wrigley Jr. Company and H&R Block among others.

"I am grateful to be honored by Goya and the Spain US Chamber of Commerce," said Henry Cardenas, CEO of CMN and co-founder of Maestro Cares.  "Out of all of my accomplishments, creating Maestro Cares was by far my greatest.  Together, we set out to make a difference in the lives of children without food, love, and proper care, and instead, each of the children we have helped has given us so much more in return.  This is just the beginning." In 2012, Mr. Cárdenas teamed up with business associate and Grammy Award winner Marc Anthony to launch the Maestro Cares Foundation in an effort to help disadvantaged children in developing Latin American countries. The mission of Maestro Cares is to improve the quality of life for orphaned children throughout Latin America by providing housing, classrooms, health clinics, dining and recreational facilities.  Since its founding, the Foundation has opened up orphanages in the Dominican Republic, Colombia, and Mexico.  New projects are currently in process in Peru, Puerto Rico, Bolivia, Guatemala and Chicago. Goya Foods is a founding member of the Spain-U.S. Chamber of Commerce and has fully supported the organization's outstanding work since 1959. "We are truly honored to host and organize this prestigious event for one of our founding members," Alan D. Solomont, President of the Spain-U.S. Chamber of Commerce, said about this celebration.
