Bert Ogden Arena to be Highlighted by Edinburg Chamber for Humanitarian Efforts

EDINBURG, TX – The Edinburg Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors have chosen Bert Ogden Arena as its Business of the Month for the month of August for their commitment to serving their community during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The entertainment venue has been in the forefront during the COVID-19 pandemic by serving as the host for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ free COVID-19 testing program.

“We are committed to bringing people together, and until we can do that safely for concerts and sporting events, we will continue to bring people together in benefit of the greater good.  Whether that be by partnering with the Rio Grande Valley Food Bank to distribute food to thousands of Valley residents, or collecting life-saving blood donations for Vitalant, or partnering with the City of Edinburg, the State of Texas, and the federal government to conduct Covid-19 testing, we believe that Unidos Podemos, or ‘United We Can’.  This has been our company mantra throughout this difficult time, our guiding principle. We are stronger together,” said Shalimar Madrigal, spokesperson for Golden Grape Entertainment, owners and operates of Bert Ogden Arena.

The arena will be recognized by the Edinburg Chamber of Commerce throughout the month on their website and various platforms for their humanitarian efforts hosted at their facilities and allocating their resources when needed to be of service to the Rio Grande Valley.
