This is the 17th anniversary of the luncheon and a milestone for Tampa Bay Hispanics to be proud of, as the proceeds from this event will go towards funding the City of Tampa Mayor’s Hispanic Advisory Council scholarship programs at various institutions of higher education in Tampa including University of Tampa, University of South Florida, and Hillsborough Community College.
