2019 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 28, 2019, at the Westin Convention Center Hotel in Downtown Pittsburgh. Following a cocktail hour, Latin inspired dinner and program with host, Gisele Barreto Fetterman (Second Lady of PA) and keynote speaker, Allen Gutierrez (Associate Administrator of the Office of Entrepreneurial Development- United States Small Business Administration) Guests will dance the night away to live Latin music and enjoy casino games. Prizes may be won with casino tickets and at our extensive silent auction.

We will announce our 2019 college and graduate school scholarship recipients at the Gala, as well as the 2019 recipient of the "Rob Vega Memorial Scholarship,". Since 2011 PMAHCC has awarded $170,000 to 119  qualifying area students of Hispanic/Latino decent. These students have attended technical schools, colleges, and universities, including Ivy League schools. Year after year, we see an increase in applicants.
