Tennessee Latin American Chamber of Commerce Celebrates Cinco de Mayo with Inaugural “Sink-O de Mayo” Golf Tournament at Hermitage Golf Course Supported by 19 Teams, 20+ Sponsors, Mayor John Cooper and Leah Galván Turner

Proceeds Will Be Used To Launch TLACC’s
New Small Business Initiative, “Avanzándo”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 5, 2021) — The Tennessee Latin American Chamber of Commerce (TLACC) hosted its first-ever golf tournament today, appropriately naming it: “Sink-O de Mayo.” The event drew 19 teams, more than 20 sponsors, and 30+ volunteers to Hermitage Golf Course, just outside of Nashville. 

The event opened with a vibrant performance by Mariachi band Sol Azteca, followed by TLACC Board President Victor Berrios (also President of Jani-King) who welcomed the crowd. He thanked teams, volunteers, and all sponsors, including Title Sponsor, CapStar Bank; Bronze Sponsor, Nissan; and Cart Sponsors, Jani-King, AmeriAgency, Limeña and Ajax Turner.

Berrios also shared supportive words sent by Mayor John Cooper: “Nashville is a proudly diverse city, and we owe so much of our growth and prosperity to our Latino neighbors. I’m grateful to the Tennessee Latin American Chamber of Commerce and all of today’s sponsors for helping to promote and facilitate the success of Latino-owned businesses. With your help, Nashville is re-emerging from a difficult year as a city on the rise.”

Berrios turned the mic over to recording artist Leah Galván Turner who officially kicked off the tournament by inviting teams to line up and tee off. 

Winning teams will be announced on TLACC’s social media platforms this evening following the event’s dinner and trophy presentation ceremony. (Social media links are at the bottom of this release.)

Golf tournament proceeds will help with the rollout of TLACC’s new member resource called “Avanzándo” (Ah-Van-ZAN-Doh) including paying for translation of curriculum, technology upgrades, and materials for participants. The educational resource series was designed in collaboration with Nashville’s Entrepreneur Center to help small business owners navigate and prosper in today’s ever-changing marketplace. (“Avanzándo” translates to “Advancing.”)

Once launched, the series of classes will cover topics including finance, social media marketing, overall best practices, forecasting, and more.
