The 87th Annual San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Gala


I had the honor of attending the 87th Annual San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (SAHCC) Gala at the Grand Hyatt on Saturday night.  The SAHCC has been a huge part of making me feel at home in San Antonio.  I completed the Alex Briseno Leadership Development Program and was proud to have been in the inaugural class of the Latina Leadership Institute.  These two leadership programs were life-changing experiences and introduced me to so many new people, many of whom are now my closest friends. The SAHCC is one of the strongest advocates in the country for business and for empowerment of all Latinos and it's a testament to their stellar staff that they put on exceptional events and programs throughout the year. Ramiro Cavazos, a fellow RGV native, is a great leader and the city is lucky to have him and his team!  This gala is one of the best events of the year.  Thank you to my dear friend, Maria, for the invitation.

And now what you really wanted to see...what we wore!


My fellow LLI alum, Andrea Guerrero Guajardo and I.  Isn't she stunning in that bold jewel tone?


LLI ladies with Ruby Resendez, who is now running for State Representative!


LLI ladies with State Representative Ina Minjarez, who is not only beautiful, but smart and courageous.


Our stunning crew working the blue carpet, if I do say so myself.

On to the fashion!
