2017 Hispanic Heritage Month Gala
Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by commemorating the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.
The Gala, which benefits the Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (PMAHCC ) Foundation Educational Fund, will be held on Saturday, September 30, 2017, at the Westin Convention Center Hotel in Downtown Pittsburgh. Following a cocktail hour, Latininspired dinner and program with keynote speaker, Secretary of The Commonwealth, Pedro A. Cortes, guests will dance the night away to live Latin music.
We will announce our 2017 college and graduate school scholarship recipients at the Gala, as well as the 2017 recipient of the "Rob Vega Memorial Scholarship," which was conceptualized in 2013 and first awarded in 2014. In 2014, 16 scholarships, totaling $27,000 were awarded to qualifying area students of Hispanic/Latino decent. To date, $114,00 has been awarded to a diverse group of students attending technical schools, colleges, and universities, including Ivy League schools. Year after year, we see an increase in applicants
