Eduardo Verastegui to host mega conference to benefit L.A. women’s center

.- Manto de Guadalupe, a non-profit organization formed by Mexican Actor Eduardo Verastegui, will host a one-day Spanish-language “mega conference” and concert to benefit a new women’s medical center opening near downtown Los Angeles.

The event, titled “Unidos Por La Vida” (United for Life), is scheduled for May 23. It will feature performances by singers and actors such as Emmanuel Acha and his son Alejandro. Other speakers include actress Karyme Lozano, Manuel Capetillo, Gilberto Gless, Fr. Juan Rivas and Fr. Mariano de Blas.

Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director who is now pro-life, will also speak.

Proceeds will benefit Manto de Guadalupe’s latest project, a medical center for women in one of the most impoverished areas of Los Angeles. There are reportedly many abortion clinics in the area.

“My hope is that Guadalupe Medical Center will reach and help many women, children and families,” explained Verastegui. “It will be an oasis of life for those most in need.”

The event on Sunday, May 23 will take place from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the South Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center.
