Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce to Host 2019 Gala Event to Benefit Local Latino Students
 
 
 
The Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (PMAHCC) is proud to announce its 2019 Hispanic Heritage Month Gala to be held on Saturday, September 28, 2019 at the Westin Convention Center Hotel in Downtown Pittsburgh.
 
The Gala benefits the PMAHCC Foundation Educational Fund, which over the years has awarded $190,000 to 120+ qualifying local students of Hispanic/Latino descent. Since 2011 the funds have supported the students’ pursuit to study and graduate from technical and vocational schools, colleges, and universities, including Ivy League schools. Our 2019 scholarship recipients will be announced at the Gala!
 
Sponsorship has many benefits like recognition for promoting multicultural diversity, inclusion & awareness and supporting higher education. The PMAHCC thanks its current committed GALA sponsors including Highmark, The Heinz Endowments, Coca-Cola, PNC Bank and many more, for contributions totaling over $80,000 in funds. We invite additional organizations to serve as sponsors and help raise our goal of $100,000 in sponsorships and other funding.
 
2019 Gala guests will enjoy a casino themed event including a cocktail hour, a Latin-inspired dinner, and program with honorary host Gisele Barretto Fetterman , the Second Lady of Pennsylvania, and Allen Gutierrez , Administrator of the Office of Entrepreneurial Development of the US Small Business Association.
 
 
Live music entertainment is in order featuring top local performers including Noel Quintana and the Latin Crew, SRU Afro-Colombian Dance Ensemble, and KENIA Brazilian Jazz Singer. Throughout the night exciting casino games will be played for prizes with all proceeds going toward the Hispanic student scholarships fund. There will be a silent auction and bidding on an array of fantastic gifts.
 
The PMAHCC Gala takes place every two years during National Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 - Oct. 15) - a national commemoration of the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. As in other years, we are proud of the distinguished guests who will be joining us for the 2019 Gala including c ommunity leaders, business executives, and politicians. Join us for this exciting event!
