Hometown Hero presented by Northern California Honda Dealers

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, the Raiders and Northern California Honda Dealers teamed up to spotlight one Hometown Hero in the community. This Hometown Hero is someone who exemplifies a dedication to elevating the Hispanic community, a commitment to work and family and a passion for achieving excellence in everything they do. The "Hometown Hero" is Rene Gonzalez, founder of Ballet Folklorico Mexico Danza.

Ballet Folklorico Mexico Danza, an East Bay non-profit dance company, was founded by González in 1991. René began teaching in his hometown of Hayward, CA with a goal to bring the rich culture of Mexican folklorico to the youth in his local community.
