Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (SHCC) celebrates the 41st Annual Business Awards Gala by entertaining guests with Latin Dancing with the Stars featuring local celebrities and elected officials on February 1st at the Sacramento State Ballroom. The Gala launches the 2013 theme of "Educate, Innovate, Participate" with business awards and a live auction.
The SHCC Annual Gala sets the tone with the flare and hospitality of the Hispanic community by providing a three-course dinner for over 600 guests. The enchanted evening will award the business community with a night of recognition, and entertain the audience with the much anticipated, Latin Dancing with the Stars. The gala serves as the SHCC largest fundraiser and will include a live auction.
The 41st Annual Business Awards Gala will take place 6pm-11pm on February 1, 2013 at Sacramento State, University Ballroom on 6000 J Street. Tickets are $150 for members, $175 for non-members, and $1,500 for tables of 10.
Latin Dancing with the Stars brings six elected officials and local celebrities to compete. Each dancer will spend up to five weeks practicing Latin styled dances including Salsa, Cha-Cha or Bachata at participating dance studios. Performances will be judged on crowd reaction, dancing style and most authentic costumes. The excitement will have celebrity emcee Pattie Moreno, The Latin Diva of Hot 103.5FM, and Jose Reynoso, long term radio personality in the Hispanic Community.
Celebrity Dancers include:
- Cristina Mendonsa, NEWS10 Anchor
- Sharon Gerber, Six Degreez Inc.

- Taro Arai, Mikuni Sushi
- Allen Warren, District 2 Councilmember

As a membership based organization, the SHCC takes time to recognize and reward the members that have excelled in business over the past year. The community nominates leaders that have added substantial services to the Latino community.
The evening continues with a Live Auction to raise funds for the educational programs planned for the 2013 year. The SHCC will launch the ACE Program that are workshops focused in small business development. Each workshop will educate on business topics like Taxes, Marketing, Human Resources, Networking or Exporting, and will be paired with an expert in each field. The SHCC provides value to members by supplying resources for businesses to excel with programs like the Elected Official Roundtable that offers members an opportunity to have a discussion with officials. Next roundtable discussion is with Congressman Ami Bera on March 22, 2013.
The SHCC provides the business community with networking monthly mixers hosted at member locations, and provide a dependable opportunity to expand business networks. The Annual gala serves as the launching point for the year, and invites all members and general public to attend the event. The gala is a platform to connect with the Hispanic Business Community.
