The Montgomery County Executive Hispanic Gala is a 100% volunteer-run event. The MCEHG was instituted in 2013 to bring together stakeholders and organizations that are committed to assist Hispanic youth to achieve a high level of education while building strong, diverse and united communities in Montgomery County and throughout the State of Maryland. In 2015, the scholarship opportunity was made available to all qualifying students from diverse communities.
Funds raised are directed to scholarships for students enrolled in Montgomery County and Maryland higher education institutions.
The Hispanic Gala Steering Committee is committed to developing highly educated young professionals while providing critical financial assistance that will increase graduation rates from post-secondary education.
