[ARCHIVED] The Pink Room Owner named Union’s Hispana of the Year


This past Sunday, the Township of Union celebrated their 3rd annual Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration and awarded Maria Cecilia Sparacio, owner of the Pink Room, the Hispana of the Year award. This award is given annually to a resident or business owner in town who dedicates themselves to the empowerment of the Hispanic community.

“Maria’s dedication to Union and her advocacy on behalf of the Hispanic Community make her the perfect candidate for this award and we are truly honored to have someone like her as a business owner here. She is truly an inspiration for women and minorities,” said Suzette Cavadas, Mayor.

Maria Cecilia Sparacio is a native of Cali, Colombia. She originally came to the United States as a law student in 2001 and decided to stay and pursue the American dream.

According to Sparacio, she had a vision of one day opening up her own business and on May 5th, 2008, she made that dream a reality and opened up The Pink Room, Inc. on Morris Avenue in Elizabeth, NJ. She then was able to expand her business and open a second store in Union.

Her store helps both women and men find garments that best suit their bodies and she has quickly gained a reputation for service and attention to detail.

The Pink Room, Inc in Union is located at 1994 Morris Avenue. For more information on Sparacio or her business, please contact (908)206-1010 or visit
