The Hispanic Choice Awards to celebrate 10 Years in Philadelphia

The Hispanic Choice Awards, Philadelphia’s premier red carpet event for Latino professionals, celebrates its 10th Anniversary on Saturday, October 5th at the Merriam Theater on the Avenue of the Arts. The show will be taped for broadcast in early December on CBS3 and The CW Philly, the events official media partners.

The Hispanic Choice Awards (HCA) honors Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware’s
Latino professionals, organizations and businesses across all sectors in a three-part event:
a red carpet entrance, a televised awards ceremony featuring live performances from today’s top Latin artists and a VIP After Party.

Seven winners will be nominated in seven different categories across every industry from
Education to Business to the Arts. The HCA Review Committee received hundreds of
nominations in the categories during the nominations campaign earlier in the summer.
The Hispanic Choice Awards engages and connects the diverse Delaware Valley to honor
leaders from all industries, celebrate cross-sector collaborations, and highlight the robust
and influential Hispanic presence in the Philadelphia region.

The award show will include performances by bachata star J. Martin, the classical local
sensation, Dolce Suono Ensemble, and the cast of Tony Award winning Broadway musical,
In The Heights. The evening will also include a special Living Legend tribute to international
Grammy Award winning Salsa and Latin Jazz superstar, Eddie Palmieri. The Award Show
will be hosted by actress and comedian, Elaine Del Valle.

The American Heart Association of Southeastern Pennsylvania will be the official
Philanthropic Partner of The Hispanic Choice Awards. The number one cause of death
among Hispanic women is heart disease and The American Heart Association combats this
issue through their Go Red for Women® movement, educating women about heart disease
and encouraging them to live better and healthier lives.

Tickets for the Hispanic Choice Awards range from $18 to $55. HCA Experience Passes
include VIP access to the Red Carpet, the Award Show and the official After Party. More
