It was an emotional moment for celebrated MLB All-Star José Abreu as he was honored at The Hennessy All-Star Series, which honors exemplary Latinos in sports who “Never stop. Never settle,” Monday evening at Studio Paris in Chicago. “It is an amazing feeling to be here and feel the love from Chicago,” said Abreu, who briefly spoke to Lawndale Bilingual Newspaper prior to the event. “It is great to be honored by Hennessy as part of the Hennessey All-Star Series. I love what I do and feel very fortunate to be able to play for such an incredible team.” MLB All-Star and 2014 American League Rookie of the Year was honored for his leadership, endurance, and commitment to the sport as well as his services for youth in the community. “I believe it is our responsibility to give back and give youth resources to help them succeed in life. It is our responsibility to invest in our children…this is a cause that is close to my heart.” When asked what motivates him to give 100 percent to everything he does, he, without hesitation, replied, “Family. Family is my number one reason for giving it all I have.” Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilege helped launch the event where guests enjoyed signature V.S.O.P cocktails inspired by Abreu including the “Hennessy V.S.O.P Privilege Abreu” and the “Windy City Mule.”
