The Woodlands High School Mariachis to perform at Cinco de Mayo Golf Tournament

By  | 

The Montgomery County Hispanic Chamber (MCHC) and The United States-Mexico Chamber of Commerce (USMCOC) will kick off the joint Cinco de Mayo Golf Tournament with a performance from The Woodlands High School Mariachis.

The golf tournament, dubbed the “Tacos, Tequila & Tees Tournament,” has a shotgun start of 9 a.m. on Friday, May 5. Before the golfers tee off, they will be serenaded by Mariachis from The Woodlands High School.

THWS Mariachis are being sponsored by local resident and realtor Melissa Zamora-Marentez. “The love for Mariachi music was instilled in me by my father from the time I was born. The music and the memories hit me at my core. I was excited to learn that TWHS had a mariachi band. I’ve since watched their recorded performances online and WOW! I can’t believe these are high school kids! What I love even more is that there are kids from all backgrounds and ethnicities involved in this group. I’m proud and happy to sponsor a group of kids embracing such an important part of Mexican culture,” said Zamora-Marentez. 

Miguel Lopez, MCHC President

As of the morning of April 27, there are approximately only 3 teams spots open for the tournament. According to Miguel Lopez, MCHC President, the tournament is on pace to not only be a success but also fun. “Our tournament has been very well received by the community which resulted in sponsorships and golfers. We love highlighting individuals and businesses in Montgomery County when possible. We are thrilled to share that our Tequila sponsor, Don Cosme Tequila, is a locally owned spirit with a rich history that dates to 1907. Of course, having the students from TWHS Mariachis kick us off is a special treat for us,” said Lopez.

Interested participants can purchase a foursome for $600 or register as an individual golfer for $175, with breakfast and lunch included along with goodie bags. The awards ceremony will take place during the post-tournament luncheon, with raffle tickets available for purchase. Those interested in learning more about the tournament or registering can contact Miguel Lopez (President of MCHC) at or Ana María Simmons (Executive Director of USMCOC) at
