This year's Feliz Navidad Celebración was held at the fabulous Hyatt Regency, Colorado Convention Center. All participants brought a new, unwrapped $10 toy to put in the DHCC official "sleigh." The sleigh was a beautiful van donated by Chrysler for picking up and delivering the toys. Sponsor AT & T also provided donation locations in their stores located throughout metro Denver.
Along with the season spirit, this after-hours Christmas celebration was a "must attend" event in the Hispanic business community. Many generous people helped out the less fortunate children this Christmas while networking with business professionals at the Denver Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Feliz Navidad Celebración.
This remarkable event featured holiday networking, delicious hors d'oeuvres and lively entertainment by Me and Julio. Supporting sponsors of the Feliz Navidad toy event were Chrysler and the Hyatt Regency Convention Center. The Regalos sponsor of the evening's event was the Colorado Dept. of Transportation: The Heat is On Campaign. The DHCC also wanted to give special thanks to media partner Entravision Communications.
