Sponsor the 31st Annual Hispanic Heritage Festival and Health Fair
Dear Prospective Sponsor,
As you may know, Hispanics comprised of the descendants from 22 different countries are now the nation’s largest minority. We comprise 16.7% of the U.S. population. In Hawaii, Hispanics are the fastest-growing segment of our population. According to the latest Census figures, there are over 142,000 Hispanics in Hawaii. That makes us 10% of the population and still growing!
Hispanic Heritage month, September 15th through October 15th, was enacted in 1988 by President Ronald Reagan. This one-month observance recognizes the contributions Hispanic Americans have made to the United States. September 15th was chosen as the starting point because many Latin American countries celebrate their Independence Day on or near that day.
This year’s theme is: “Latinos: Driving Prosperity, Power and Progress in America”.
During the upcoming national celebration, our Hawaii Hispanic communities statewide will celebrate through a variety of events. The largest is our Annual Hispanic Heritage Festival and Health Fair held this year at AMVETS West Oahu/ American Veterans Center on October 14 & 15, 2023 from 12-7pm. Past attendance has averaged about 3,000 + attendees.
A portion of the Festival proceeds will be used to fund Annual Scholarships for outstanding Hispanic students entering or currently enrolled in college and the American Veterans, West Oahu.
This Festival is a wonderful place for our community to showcase its services and products. This is also a great way for mainstream businesses and corporations, interested in promoting their products or services within Hawaii’s Hispanic community, to access a wide spectrum of that community.
We would like to invite you to become a corporate sponsor of our Annual Hispanic Heritage Festival & Health Fair. Also, as a sponsor you will be donating to Hispanic scholarships in Hawaii and American Vets as net proceeds will benefit these organizations. Please see below regarding the numerous benefits of serving as a corporate sponsor.
