Eva Longoria Presented with Distinguished Business Leadership Award by Latin Chamber of Commerce

Eva Longoria Parker, entrepreneur and owner of two new, successful CityCenter ventures, Beso steakhouse and Eve nightclub, was presented with the first ever “Premio de Oro – Distinguished Leadership” award by the Latin Chamber of Commerce on Saturday, February 20. The award recognizes Longoria Parker for her success as the Las Vegas Strip’s sole Latina restaurant and nightclub owner and for her commitment to expand opportunities for minority- and women-owned businesses.

Eva Longoria Parker was presented with the prestigious award at the Latin Chamber of Commerce 35th Installation Celebration at Eve, her CityCenter nightclub in Las Vegas. Chairman of the Clark County Commission Rory Reid and Las Vegas Councilman Ricky Barlow each presented her with a proclamation on the red carpet to declare the day “Eva Longoria Parker Day” in her honor.

Longoria Parker looked ravishing as she walked the red carpet outside of Eve nightclub. She was accompanied by her very proud parents, Ella and Enrique Longoria. Also in attendance was Nevada’s First Lady Dawn Gibbons, Chairman of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce David Lizárraga, Nevada Senator Steven Horsford, Congresswoman Shelley Berkley, Clark County Commissioner Lawrence Weekly, Assemblyman William Horne, the Latin Chamber of Commerce’s chairman Luis Valera and president and CEO Otto Merida, and ARIA at CityCenter President and COO Bill McBeath.

When presented with the award, Longoria Parker commented that it was an honor to receive the award and she was proud to make a difference in both the Las Vegas and Latin community, attributing much of her success to the women role models in her life – her mother, grandmother, aunts and three older sisters.

Following the ceremony, Longoria Parker dined with her parents at her celebrated steakhouse Beso. She sipped her favorite cocktail – Beso’s signature pear and elderflower white sangria – and enjoyed her amazing tortilla soup, guacamole (a recipe that was passed down from her grandmother), and the whole fish branzino. Afterwards, the actress/entrepreneur headed back upstairs to Eve nightclub where she topped off the night with some dancing, a surprise visit from Jeff Beacher’s Oompa Loompas, and very special cake and champagne toast in celebration of "Eva Longoria Parker Day." Also in attendance was celebrity blogger Perez Hilton
