GREATER WASHINGTON HISPANIC CHAMBER OF COMMERCE TO HOST

43rd ANNUAL GALA INTRODUCING THE FIRST HISPANIC BUSINESS HALL OF FAME

June 14th, 2019

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (GWHCC) will celebrate their 43rd Annual Gala by launching the first ever GWHCC Hispanic Business Hall of Fame which will recognize business leaders whose legendary achievements continue to promote and advance the economic climate of our communities.

During the evening, we will award the luminaries who have made significant contributions to the development and advancement of the Hispanic market in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia.

GWHCC will present three awards to change makers in the following categories:

  • The Hispanic Business Hall of Fame Award – A legacy award that will live in the Chamber and online. This award will be bestowed upon a long-standing business in our region who has demonstrated a history of resiliency, sustainability and corporate citizenship.
  • The Young Hispanic Entrepreneur Award – Presented to a young, bold entrepreneur who has been in business 0-5 years. This individual has a track record of success, a deep level of community involvement and is effecting change through corporate social responsibility.
  • The Community Anchor Award – Granted to an organization whose contributions and strong commitment to corporate responsibility practices have empowered the Hispanic community in the region. The leaders of this organization are actively engaged in expanding these efforts and integrate relevant societal concerns into their core values and strategic plans.

“We are launching this hisotric initiative as vehicle to highlight and memorialize the incredible contributions made by Hispanic businesses in our region over the years. This is our opportunity to leave a legacy, tell our stories, celebrate our heritage and showcase our impact on the Nation’s Capital.” says Nicole Quiroga, GWHCC President and CEO

The Gala will be held Friday June 14, 2019 at the MGM National Harbor from 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm.
