Organizers of Bronx Dominican parade honored for their dedication

Dedication and hard work has earned organizers of the Bronx Dominican parade high honors.

Congressman Jose Serrano (D-Bronx) presented the organizers with an award for their service over the last 16 years. He says not only have they brought the community together, but they have also helped local students by providing a scholarship program. The parade organizers say since starting the program, they have handed out nearly $100,000 to Bronx kids.

The Dominican parade will be held July 17 on the Grand Concourse.
