The Statewide Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of NJ (SHCCNJ) will hold its
Annual Awards Gala on December 2nd, 2022, at the Pines Manor in Edison, New Jersey.
The event will kick off with a fantastic cocktail reception followed by an awards presentation honoring the
remarkable contributions made by the business, civic, and community leaders.
“It has been an amazing year of many milestones for our Chamber, and we are excited to
celebrate with all who contributed to our familia’s success,” said Luis De La Hoz, Chairman.
The Awards Gala will celebrate another strong year for the fastest-growing minority business
group in the state. The event is also raising funds for the Chamber’s educational programs
(provided at no cost to the community), such as:
• Hispanic Entrepreneurship Training Program (HETP)
• Latina Entrepreneurship Training Series (LETS)
• Small Business Bonding Readiness Program
• Masterclasses & Summer Series
“The SHCCNJ presents these prestigious awards each year to extraordinary and visionary
persons, as well as corporate and government advocates,” Medina said. “More than ever,
when New Jersey’s Latino GDP is $97 billion, larger than the entire economic output of the
state of Hawaii, we need to support events that raise funds that strive to strengthen our
business community. We commit to helping Hispanic business owners thrive to keep their
strong impact on the state’s economy,” ,” indicated Carlos Medina, Esq., SHCCNJ President
