Highlights include Moen kitchen faucets with MotionSense® hands-free technology. Moen will also showcase the company's latest sustainable bath and kitchen products.

Attendees at the Casa Latina Home Expo will be able to participate in Moen's giveaway promotion for a chance to win the latest company products by sharing pictures they take on Twitter using the hashtag #MoenLatino.

Marlene Pratt, co-founder of CasaLatina.com and presenter of the Casa Latina Home Expo, said, "We are thrilled to have Moen as our category exclusive sponsor. Moen has worked diligently to support Hispanic homeownership through its national program "Alcanzando Sueños con Moen," (Achieving Dreams with Moen), which partners with key Latino nonprofit organizations and contributes kitchen and bath fixtures and other products in support of affordable housing. I have worked with Moen on numerous occasions and am looking forward to yet another successful collaboration with this great brand."
