MUY CALIENTE!: That’s the idea when it comes to the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts’ annual gala, the culmination of a series of glamorous events that consistently draws an A-List crowd of Hispanic actors, personalities, and community members to support Latino graduate students in the arts. After a spicy dinner, and between awards presentations, the well-dressed revelers danced to Latin super-star Willy Chirino’s band. THE GUESTS: Norman Dreyfuss, Secretary Carlos and Edie Gutierrez, Bacardi’s Kristin Bodenstedt, Joseph Warren, Bob Ghafouri, Julia Ehrgood, Ford Motor Co.’s Raquel “Rocky” Egusquiza, and American Airlines Juan Rios.
