At the event Longoria Parker was presented the prestigious “Premio de Oro ­ Distinguished Business Leadership” award, to honor her commitment to expand opportunities for women- and minority-owned businesses. She 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. Longoria Parker 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.
