About the Gala
About the Annual Hispanic Heritage Month Gala
Each year, the FCHCC has celebrated our Hispanic Heritage Month with a Gala. This is done to promote awareness of the impact our Hispanic community has had in our Northeast corner of Florida.
The Gala is a way for us to say thank you to our community for all they have done for us and the impact that we as a society can make on others.–Monica Hernandez, FCHCC President & CEO
The First Coast Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (FCHCC) has supported the education of Hispanics for many years. Furthermore, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in Jacksonville (FCHCC), is proud to have impacted the lives of more than two hundred fifty (250) earnest and qualified scholarship recipients during its 30 years of existence.
FCHCC scholarship program; Achieving the Dream, not only enables students who have worked hard and achieved academic excellence to start or continue their education, it gives them the opportunity to become future successful entrepreneurs.
This year, FCHCC and its Community Development Fund plans to award $20,000 in scholarships valued at $2,000.00 to each deserving and competent Hispanic
