2021 Virtual Gala

Join us for our 2021 Virtual Gala!

The Center for Hispanic Marketing Communication at Florida State University is the only one of its kind in the country – co-founded by Betty Ann and Felipe Korzenny, pioneers in the field of U.S. Hispanic marketing and advertising. The Center holds the distinction as being the first in the nation to focus on the cultural nuances of the Latino sector. We play a major role in preparing students to address the severe shortage of industry professionals who understand the fundamentals of marketing to a diverse audience as practitioners or scholars. 

Today, responding to powerful influences across diverse communities, the Center is devoted to educating students and professionals on consumer behavior across various Latino and multicultural segments. Our world-class faculty and students are conducting trailblazing research and investigations while also serving as a valued and innovative resource for the Latino marketing industry – which is important now, more than ever. 

Each year, we host an annual event that allows community partners, alumni, & friends to be involved as a vital partner of this prestigious celebration. We are delighted to announce that we will be recognizing Arantxa Sánchez for the Tlamatini Award, State Farm for the Excellence in Philanthropy Award, Dean Lawrence C. Dennis for the Excellence in Education Award, and many more. During the event, there will be a silent auction, cocktail hour, and musical guests, we hope to see you there!

The celebration is scheduled for September 30th at 6:30 p.m. on Zoom. The funds raised by this event will be used to support Center programs, activities, scholarships, sustaining the Center for future generations, and student recruitment and retention. Other centers with similar missions have disappeared due to the lack of financial support, we know that an endowment will guarantee the sustainability of our Center for perpetuity.
