59th Annual Black & White Ball and Business Awards

Join us on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at the Arizona Grand Resort & Spa for the Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s 59th Annual Black & White Ball and Business Awards!

The theme for the gala, FRIDA & DIEGO: Art, Love, Life, a tribute to the legendary artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, is part of a community partnership with the Heard Museum and its Frida and Diego Exhibit opening on April 9 to August 20th. This exhibit offers a rare opportunity to see firsthand masterpieces by two of the most important artists of the 20th century. Phoenix is the only North American stop on a world tour.
