Celebrate the Hispanic Center

March 12, 2012 by  

The 44th annual Hispanic Center LeHigh Valley fundraising banquet will be held at Lehigh University Mountaintop Campus on April 20 from 6-11 pm. Tickets are $75 per person or $140 per couple.

In addition to networking, a celebration of the Hispanic Center and the banquet, the evening will feature the presentation of several community awards:

• Community Health Leadership Award will be given to Bonnie S. Coyle, M.D, Director of St. Luke’s Department of Community Health
• Outstanding Educator’s Award will be given to Ms. Sonia Vazquez, Donegan Elementary School Principal
• Un Orgullo Hispano Award will be given to ABW Pediatrics

This will be a perfect opportunity for networking between LeHigh Valley business leaders and the community at large. Those who do plan to do some networking during the event should arrange with Bethlehem printing companies for extra business card printing. Cards can easily be tucked in a jacket pocket or put in a small clutch. There is no hard sell at such events but it is a good chance for businesses to move to the next level by growing their referral network.

It is recommended that after a social event where you have promised people that you will follow up, that you do it the next day. If it is a morning networking event it is suggested you contact the person later that same day. Business leaders network with a lot of people and they will not remember those they met if they haven’t heard back from them after more than a few days.
