On Wednesday, March 4, the Hispanic Business Council hosted their popular Business Under the Stars event at The Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek. Nestled amongst historic buildings and large Florida oaks, the Pioneer Village made a perfect setting to embrace both Hispanic and Osceola heritage.
The event boasted 32 vendors this year, and attendees enjoyed music, as well as food and beverage from our restaurant sponsors. Restaurants offering samples this year were Tequabite, Pollo Tropical, Florida Technical College’s culinary program, and Tomato Express. Tomato Express also provided the bar for the evening.
Our live DJ gave HBC Chairman of the Board Carlos Velez the opportunity to allow each vendor to give a live introduction to their business and the services they offer. As the evening gave way to a night sky full of stars, one lucky raffle winner was the recipient of a seven-night stay at a select Wyndham property courtesy of title sponsor Wyndham Destinations. Other raffle prizes included tickets to an Orlando Magic game and gift cards for Tequabite.
This year’s Business Under the Stars was sponsored by Wyndham Destinations, with supporting sponsorship from the Orlando Magic, Kissimmee Utility Authority, ABC Paving and Sealcoating, CenterState Bank, Experience Kissimmee, and New York Life. Promotional consideration was provided by El Osceola Star Newspaper. Proceeds from this event will go toward the HBC’s scholarship fund for Osceola County students.
