Highlighting Philadelphia's multicultural professionals

Ah yes the never ending struggle of our multicultural people. I'm always happy to see organizations like the Multicultural Affairs Congress (MAC) honor/award our leaders doing big things. This Thursday, MAC, which is a division of the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau (PCVB), is celebrating its 17th Annual Recognition Awards Luncheon entitled “Power, Pride & Progress” by honoring industry and community leaders for their accomplishments in support of MAC’s mission. Mayor Michael A. Nutter will address PCVB-booked multicultural convention success and highlight upcoming initiatives and big wins for Philadelphia.
  • Charisse R. Lillie, President, Comcast Foundation; VP, Community Investment, Comcast Corp.
  • David Kong, CEO & President, Best Western International 
  • El Sol Latino Newspaper (Award Recipient) 
  • Local Host Committee for the 2012 National Association of Latino Arts & Culture (NALAC) Convention 
  • Karin A. Phillips, Awarded Posthumously (Award Recipient)
This annual luncheon is the largest and only gathering of diverse hospitality professionals in the city that is dedicated to increasing Philadelphia’s recognition as a top multicultural and convention city. MAC’s annual luncheon brings together hospitality professionals from all across the region who champion its mission to promote Philadelphia as an ethnically diverse visitor destination. More than 500 people attend the yearly sold-out event.
