IHCC would like to thank you for attending the 2013 Awards Gala sponsored by ComEd. Guests of the Gala enjoyed dinner, cocktails, dancing, and an excellent program as we recognized prominent business owners and community leaders for their exceptional leadership, dedication to the Hispanic business community, and commitment to making Illinois a model state.
Illinois Senate President John J. Cullerton and the Illinois Legislative Latino Caucus were honored with Distinction in Leadership awards for their work to address issues important to the Hispanic community, including education, healthcare, housing. and equal access to opportunities for Hispanic-owned businesses.

In addition, this year, President Cullerton and the Illinois Legislative Latino Caucus came together to pass ground-breaking legislation that allows undocumented immigrants in Illinois to obtain temporary drivers licenses.
