GNCC Board Member Wins Campeón de la Comunidad Award

We want to congratulate our very own Maria Aguirre-Borrero (Maria is a Board Member of our Chamber) of Avenue for winning the Campeón de la Comunidad award! We can think of no one who is more deserving.

This from Avenue:  The Campeón de la Comunidad award honors outstanding leaders in the Latinx community who are making a positive impact on the city of Houston through nonprofit work.

This morning, the Houston Texans and Miller Lite presented Maria with a $20,000 donation to Avenue today to support the great work she and her team continue to lead in Northside! Congratulations, Maria, and thank you to the Texans and Miller Lite for your generous support!


In celebration of Maria's winning the Campeón de la Comunidad award (This award included a $20,000 donation to Avenue from the Houston Texans and Miller Lite!) , The Houston Texans Cheerleaders, Texans mascot Toro,  Council Member Karla Cisnerosand staff, representatives from our Chamber and representatives from our Chamber Partners - Avenue, Houston METRO, Greater Northside Management District and Wesley Community Center and more all convened at Sam Houston Math, Science, and Technology Center this past Saturday.

We would be remiss not to also mention the absolutely delicious food from The Original Alamo Tamales!

Although the event was a celebration for Maria it was also a celebration of community as a whole. (Maria wouldn't have it any other way!) Over 800 cars drove through to promote good will, community spirit and receive valuable resources and materials from the aforementioned parties. All of this plus absolutely beautiful weather culminated in one fine day in Northside!
