The San Joaquin County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (SJCHCC) is celebrating its 50th Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, June 25, 2022, at the Lindley House, Port of Stockton. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. with the dinner program from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Tickets are $150 per person. The program will feature a presentation on the extensive history of the San Joaquin County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and performances by a Stockton Symphony ensemble, Mariachi Tierra Jalisciense, Ballet Folklorico, and the SJCHCC Legacy Awards.
“For the past 50 years the Hispanic Chamber has been proud to advocate for its members and worked to support a thriving Hispanic business community in San Joaquin County,” said Eddie Lira, President of the SJCHCC Board of Directors, “The businesses and individuals who were nominated for the Legacy Awards are not only successful, but are making a difference in our community and we want to celebrate their contributions.”
In 1972, the Stockton Mexican American Chamber of Commerce was formed by a group of business owners and individuals to raise awareness for local issues and advocate for their businesses. The organization went on to serve as a founding charter for both the California and the United States Hispanic Chambers of Commerce and operates today as the San Joaquin County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
The Legacy Awards will honor several members for their longstanding service to the Chamber and the community. Recipients include Paul Guerrero, SJCHCC Legacy Advocate; Julian Canete, Hispanic Chamber Legacy Leadership Award; Andrew Ysiano, Latino Times Hispanic Chamber Legacy Champion; Jim Molina, State Farm Insurance Agent, Legacy Member Award; Jose Rodriguez, El Concilio, Latino Community Service Legacy Award; Senator Susan Talamantes Eggman, Civil Servant Legacy Award.
