"What a grand party. The Adelante Awards, hosted by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, has a vibe very similar to the Academy Awards. Upon arrival, the guests are pampered with pre-party fun. When the doors open to the grand hall, everyone enters taking their seat at elegantly decorated tables. The entertainment is festive, and the food is not only delicious, but art masterpieces are displayed on the plates. We were nominated for the Civic Award of the Year, and it was a tie. I remember when the first winner was announced, and we sat waiting for the second winner’s name. The anticipation was killing us when we heard our name announced. All of us jumped up screaming as if we had won a million dollars. We began hugging each other and making our way to the stage. The award plaque is breathtaking, and the photo flashes made everything feel like a dream. Thank you, HCC, for recognizing our hard work in the community."
