CHICAGO (WLS) -- ABC7 hosted the first ever "La Mesa Latina" event Friday to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.

The luncheon brought together Latino leaders and Latino youth. Nearly 100 teens had the opportunity to network with people from Chicago's business, sports, non-profit and public service sectors.
