Every year, the Latinos Unidos Luncheon brings together Tampa Bay area Hispanics in an effort to promote the cultural and financial influence Latinos have in our communities. The annual event also showcases the rising influence and economic impact of Hispanics in our Tampa Bay area, our state, and nation.
