    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 a special guest keynote speaker.  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 $190,000 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.

    Did you know that Hispanics across the nation are opening businesses at a rate of 8 to 1 when compared to other groups? Even with this sign of prosperity, higher education remains a hurdle for this group. Latino Americans, the largest and the fastest growing ethnic minority in the United States, yet are half as likely to hold a college degree as non-Hispanic white adults and fewer than a quarter (22.6%) hold a two-year college degree or higher, the lowest of any ethnic group. With the Hispanic population of Pittsburgh seeing 170% growth from 2010 to 2018 (a time when our city lost population overall population), it is more apparent than ever that investing in the future of the local Latinx population is investing in the future of Pittsburgh!


    As an organization, we seek to increase educational opportunities by providing scholarships to outstanding Latinx students in the greater Pittsburgh area (based on both merit and financial need). It's with your help, that our semi-annual Hispanic Heritage Month Gala has funded our PMAHCC Foundation scholarship program.
