Working with these folks has been rewarding, and with desire to expand this content to serve the area Hispanic community, WSVG has partnered with Business Management and Operations Consulting and La Voz Latina newspaper.

The Society of American and Latino Entrepreneurs (SALE) is a group of business owners and individuals interested in engaging the Hispanic market in the Shenandoah Valley.

SALE holds its inaugural meeting at 2 pm Saturday July 27, at Las Trancas Restaurant in Woodstock for all interested in listening or participating.

There’s no cost, so come network with the area’s fastest growing demographic. More information on the event and the group can be found here: SALE Flyer_Final.
