Join the San Miguel Angels For Education
By Antonio De Jesús Aguado
Ventanas de Oportunidad Charity Golf Tournament is the gateway to getting your wings by supporting the mission of San Miguel Angels for Education to provide quality bilingual, private education for boys and girls living in local orphanages.
The annual charity golf tournament will take place on July 5 at Ventanas de San Miguel Golf & Resort. There are numerous ways to get involved in this event which include volunteering, playing, sponsoring and/or donating.
“With at least 25 volunteers needed for the planning and execution of the event, the more volunteers we get involved and in-kind donations we receive, the more money we are able to allocate to our expanding educational program and the more children who stand to benefit”, said Naomi Lawler, Director of the event. Golfers simply need to sign up, pay, play and enjoy their day. Sponsors can receive marketing, branding and media publicity as well as a tax-deductible receipt for getting involved. Sponsorships are available from $3,500 – $80,000 pesos. Donors can offer prizes or goods and services for the silent auction, including art, jewelry, home décor, vacation stays locally, nationally or internationally, restaurant or hotel gift certificates, clothing, etc.
“Knowing that we are able to give children hope and faith who desperately need to believe that their future will be brighter than their past by providing them with educational opportunities that can break the past cycles of poverty, abuse, violence, neglect and ignorance is the only motivation I need to get up in the morning and work hard to create a successful charitable event,” commented Naomi Lawler.
Information on how to get involved is available on the website www.ventanasdeoportunidad.org or by contacting Naomi Lawler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some of the prizes for a Hole in One include a residential lot at Ventanas de San Miguel Golf and Resort, an i10 car courtesy of Chrysler San Miguel, a transferable membership at Ventanas, 50,000 US dollars and a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
San Miguel Angels for Education (SMAFE) supports and invests in the education of children in orphanages to shape a more vibrant future for one of Mexico’s most vital resources: its children. SMAFE provides access to primary, secondary and higher education while delivering the tools for success through technology, bilingual education, tutoring and relationships with mentors for those who lack these critical influences in their everyday lives, which ultimately empower tomorrow’s leaders.
