South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce

The South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (SFLHCC) recently held its annual “Sunshine” awards in which annual triumphs and contributions to our community are held by entrepreneurs. In this 25-year edition, attended by more than 500 people, the life and legacy left by the Chairman of the camera Ralph González-Jacobo recently passed away was also celebrated. Congresswoman Donna Shalala and Miami-Dade County Commissioner Esteban Bovo, Jr. made recognitions and handed the family the flag they waved at the Miami Dade County Capitol and resolution.

The SFLHCC was founded 25 years ago with the purpose of promoting the county's businesses and strengthening ties with government agencies to help all businesses in our Miami-Dade County.

With a population of approximately 67% Hispanics, Miami-Dade County has flourished as the gate to the Americas.
