[The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI)] 33rd Annual Awards Gala will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center on September 15, 2010, and is the largest and most prestigious gathering of Hispanic bipartisan, public and private sector leaders in the nation. Join national leaders, elected officials, corporate executives, educators, and entertainers as we gather to celebrate the achievements of the Latino community. As the hallmark event of Hispanic Heritage Month, the evening provides supporters and friends of CHCI an opportunity to network while honoring the annual Chair's Award(s) and the CHCI Medallion of Excellence honorees.
CNN Anchor and special correspondent Soledad O'Brien will celebrity host the 33rd Annual Awards Gala.
