5th Annual 'Diversity in Construction GALA' at the S&EA
"Metro DC Hispanic Contractors Association regrets to inform our membership, friends and associates that at this time, due to circumstances beyond our control, we must postpone our "Diversity in Construction GALA" scheduled for December 4th at the Sports & Entertainment Arena in Southeast. We were unable to overcome certain challenges we faced with this ambitious project at a brand new venue, barely 2 months old and not yet accustomed to this type of event.
We apologize to our partners and collaborators and thank everyone involved for the remarkable support we have received. In particular we would like to thank Gilbane Construction and our entire Corporate Advisory Council
for their effort and unquestioned support for this project. We appreciate the concern and recent response from those in charge of the site and thank them as well for their attention. We hope to retake this endeavor in the near future [now March 20th].
We are most grateful for the unqualified support of the construction community and the countless friends and supporters who stood with us. Gracias!"
