    Cinco de Mayo is sponsored by the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) Council 750 Little Rock. LULAC uses proceeds generated by the Cinco de Mayo to award scholarships to Latino students, perform citizenship and voter registration drives, and conduct youth leadership training programs. LULAC seeks to empower the Latino community at the local, state and national level through its seven councils chartered in Arkansas.

    All proceeds from this year's Cinco De Mayo festival will go to higher education scholarships including the Patricia Guardado Scholarship fund at UALR.
