The Greater Philadelphia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce hosts annual gala fundraiser, Alegrίa Ball, to benefit core programs and celebrate outstanding Latino businesses and professionals.
A highlight of the event is the annual presentation of the Excelencia Hispanic Business Awards, which celebrate the growth and success of Latino-owned businesses and professionals. The 2020 recipients have distinguished themselves through their extraordinary achievements and contributions to the community in three categories: Hispanic Professional of the Year Angel Corella, Artistic Director of the Pennsylvania Ballet, Hispanic Business of the Year LUHV Food, a family-owned vegan and gluten-free food manufacturer, and Corporate Initiative of the Year Visit Philadelphia's Filadelfia- You Gotta Feel It Marketing Campaign
The funds raised at the gala will help GPHCC deliver on its 2020 Latino Small Business Agenda including:
· Advocating for a welcoming business environment such as the empowerment of City Council's Special Committee on Regulatory Review and Reform, and investment in safer, cleaner and attractive neighborhood commercial corridors.
· Helping Latino-Owned businesses adopt best practices by expanding its work in entrepreneur education such as the Accelerate Latinx program launched in 2019.
