Please join us as we celebrate the holidays with our Annual Holiday Banquet & Toy Drive. The evening will be packed with surprises and many new and familiar faces from the SHPE-NYC family. We will indulge in great Latin food, great wine from our sponsor Casa de Vinos, Latin music, and networking - so don't forget to bring your business cards!
