The event was very lively thanks to the jazz trio from Lula Lounge, the silent auction the appetizers and drinks! So many people were gathered that day mixing guests with nominees, easily recognizable thanks to their rose boutonniere. There were also a number of diplomats in attendance and all of the Hispanic media outlets.

The presentation of the event was remarkable with Ivy Cuervo from CBC as the MC, but also the sponsors.

But the highlight of the show was the Business of the year Award that awards the best business, embodying all of the highest attributes of entrepreneurship and community involvement. And the Award Recipient was Idalia Obregon, from EXITOTC who was instrumental in growing the THCC.
