On December 14, Actor Edgar Ramirez (Hands of Stone, Joy, Zero Dark Thirty) hosted the kick off of Gran Centenario Tequila's Angels on Earth 2017 at Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood alongside insiders and industry influencers.

The UNICEF goodwill ambassador and He for She partner helped encourage guests to sign up for a volunteer beach cleanup initiative with Heal The Bay
 on February 18, 2017, giving them the chance to become "Angels" themselves. The intimate event was able to recruit 80 people to donate 1-3 hours of their time to the project.

The "real angels are those amongst us who make a difference in the lives of others, no matter how small the deed" said the award-winning actor as he took multiple photos with adoring guests.

Since its launch in 2015, the “Angels on Earth” Program honors those who give back to the Los Angeles Community.

He is considered an “Angel” for his contributions.Guests, including Girlfriends star Golden Brooks and Jayson Blair of Whiplash and The New Normal were encouraged to give back to the local community by simply bringing an unwrapped gift for those in need and sign up for a volunteer beach cleanup initiative with Heal the Bay on February 18, 2017, giving them the chance to become "Angels" themselves.
