Tampa Hispanic Heritage, Inc. annually selects a Hispanic man and Hispanic woman for their life-time achievements. THHI recognizes the selected individuals
at the Hispanic Man & Hispanic Woman of the Year Gala. The Mayor of the City of Tampa presents the Official Proclamation of the Hispanic Heritage Season
at this event. THHI honors Hispanics, nominated by the community at large, who have excelled in their endeavors to advance,
promote, maintain, and enhance our Hispanic heritage and who, by their outstanding contributions, have improved the quality of life in
the Hispanic community. The community is encouraged to nominate individuals who have a strong curriculum vitae and are well-known
in their industry or community. The Hispanic Man & Hispanic Woman of the Year Gala is a formal event. Great entertainment and food is included in the ticket price.
Attendance usually includes the mayor, county commissioners, and prominent members of the community.
The public is invited to support the event with their attendance. The man and woman selected will be given the opportunity to address the audience and talk about their life experiences.
The winners may be recognized for their work by media outlets. The winner’s attendance is complimentary. Please click on Man & Woman of the Year Nomination to submit a nomination. A photo of the
individual being nominated is required. Only one nomination is needed for an individual, as additional nominations are disregarded.
Judging is not based on the quantity of nominations for an individual, rather on the service and merits of the individual.
All questions in regards to this event, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
THHI would like to thank this year’s event sponsors. Without their support and dedication to Tampa’s Hispanic community, this event would not be possible.
