Come join MDHCC as we kick-off the 2018 New Year with a jubilant celebration of Maryland Hispanic Business exceptionalism with our 5th Annual Business Awards Holiday Gala at the Belvedere!



After networking over delicious hors d’oeuvres and complimentary beer and wine, you will sit down for a wonderful plated dinner catered by the team at the Belvedere. Start your meal with a seasonal salad, and then enjoy both Thyme and Panko Chicken Breast and Maple & Mirin Glazed Salmon. As the fifth annual Business Excellence Awards are presented, sip coffee or tea over the chef’s seasonal dessert course – but don’t forget to applaud the deserving winners!

More information for our 2018 Gala coming soon.
