During the activity, the golfers and Miss Trump had the opportunity to meet members of the center’s music program ‘Creando y Cantando’ (Creating and Singing), consisting of children between the ages of 7 and 14. The Band’s talent and expertise was evidenced through their musical repertoire with which they delighted the guests. They were joined by Popular mascot ‘Populoso’ and the Puerto Rico Golf Association who brought balloon figures for the children to enjoy.
This visit is part of the alliance established between the Organizing Committee for the Puerto Rico Open and United Way to invest resources in projects that impact the community. “Through this alliance, in 2008, we were able to develop initiatives such as the project ‘Compaz de Salud’ Workshop, which aims to promote a culture of peace among Loíza’s youth, and a scholarship program aimed at encouraging the youth of Rio Grande to continue post-secondary studies,” noted Samuel González, president of United Way. “The call for applicants to the Fellowship Program will be held in March 2009,” added González.
“This year we dedicated the tournament to children, so this visit is very important for our organization. In the 2008 edition of the Puerto Rico Open presented by Banco Popular, we were able to pool together generic viagra online cheap with United Way $200,000 for charities and we hope to overcome that figure this year,” commented Sidney Wolff, chairman for the event.
From March 12 to the 14, United Way will host an exhibit area in the Puerto Rico Open for children, young people, and the parents who attend the event. As part of the program, there will be arts and crafts workshops, as well as drawing and graffiti classes, board games, parenting information, and the United Way’s ‘Éxito a los 6′® (Success by 6) will be distributing Child ID Kits. In addition, golf enthusiasts will have the opportunity to get the LIVE UNITED t-shirt in support of the organization’s call to action.
