Proceeds of the tournament will go to supporting ongoing activity programs for all age groups including Circulo de Chicas and Circulo de Chavos in providing self esteem activities for our older kids, replenishing consumable materials such as arts and craft supplies, maintaining the “Beca” program to help kids go on to Prepatoria, the purchase of musical instruments and books for the library. Monies are also utilized to help pay for ongoing expenses such as rent and maintenance for the casa building and salaries for four local Maestros who work with the children year round. One of our goals is to obtain a large canopy cover to be used as shade and for rain protection. Contact Dave Martinez at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
