ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE)- There is an event that is not only celebrating those who help the community economically, but also giving scholarships for disadvantaged women of New Mexico.
Hautepreneurs and HauteHopes are helping to recognize business owners who are helping the economic recovery through their business by employing fellow New Mexicans and creating local goods and services.
The events, Haute Highlights Festival and Haute Night Out Gala, will last through out the evening.
The festival begins at 8am on February 21.
This entrepreneurship event will give those who attend the opportunity to see what is going on statewide, sample food in the indoor food truck court, taste locally made wine and beer, get a good look at new innovative products, and purchase apparel, accessories, and technology.
The gala will begin that night at 5pm. This is a black tie event introducing the HauteHopes Scholarship.
There will not be a shortage of entertainment at the gala with silent auctions, TESLA test driving stating, dinner, and wine.
Contestants for the scholarship program will announce their business ideas and gala-goers will vote and the scholarship award will be presented that night.
There is space for more exhibitors. For those wanting to showcase offerings, purchase your booth online or send an email.
