The Laredo Economic Development Corporation (LEDC) hosted the annual Bots ‘n Bling Gala featuring the Economic Development Industry (EDI) Awards on Friday, November 5, 2021, at the Barn at Los Patios in Laredo.
The Laredo EDC created the Economic Development Industry (EDI) Award to recognize industries that contribute to the economic well-being of the Laredo and Webb County region. The EDI recognition complements the mission of the Laredo EDC to promote and foster the economic and industrial development of the Laredo region.
The 2021 EDI honorees include the Cigarroa Family of medical practitioners, for their exemplary medical service to Laredo and South Texas, Librado Piña, Inc. for their success in the customs brokerage and cold chain industry, and Kraus Development and Pinnacle Industry Center, as Laredo EDC Project of the Year for their vision in developing the Industrial Center.
After the recognitions, the program continued with a delightful dinner and the atmosphere for dancing was set by The Grooves Band from Austin, Texas. The evening included a silent auction and drawing prizes.
