Orange County Concludes Hispanic Heritage Month Festivities with Virtual Celebration of Hispanic Heritage and Hope
WHAT: For the past 22 years, the Hispanic Heritage Committee of Greater Orange County has devoted its time and service to celebrate and promote the culture, traditions, and contributions of Hispanic Americans in the region through cultural and educational events.
This year’s end-of-month celebration theme “Noche de Esperanza: A Celebration of Hispanic Heritage and Hope” sets the stage for a magical night to honor Hispanic Youth and other leaders for their contributions to our community. The event will also feature inspiring Hispanic students who have been selected by the Hispanic Heritage Committee to receive a college scholarship. The Awards Ceremony will be followed by a lineup of cultural presentations by local performance groups.
This year’s event is made possible by the support and collaboration of Greenspoon Marder LLP, a national full-service business law firm committed to the advancement of diversity and inclusion initiatives.
