The Mr. Amigo Association is the one in charge of the selection process for the yearly Mr. Amigo. The committee seeks to designate an individual who promotes the improvement of the quality of life in the Hispanic Community and who also serves as a role model.

This year’s recipient is world-champion and boxer Julio Cesar Chavez. Chavez was announced as Mr. Amigo 2019 at the Unveiling Ceremony on Thursday.

The Mr. Amigo must be a Mexican citizen who has contributed to the friendship and understanding of the United States and Mexico. They participate in several events such as “El Saludo Binacional” or “Hands Across the Border” at the Gateway International Bridge where sister city Matamoros also participates and at the Charro Days Parade.
