Amigos de le Educación, which sponsored the 11th annual Have a Heart Charity Golf Tournament last month to benefit scholarship and education projects for local schools, has announced the event’s winners: first place, Michael Sochatsky, Alice Iten, David Fleming and Dannia; second place, John Rappleye, Derrill Larkin, Jeff Harper and Calvin Jones; third place, Don Van Akkeren, Gabe Bettinsoli, Bob Chamness and Greg Mullins; and fourth, Ross Amoss, Jan Amoss, Cheryl Pruss and Joe Pruss.
The tournament was attended by 89 golfers, who enjoyed a lunch provided by Dragonfly Bar and Grill, with dessert by Le Petit Café, and breakfast by Bagelmen’s. Organizers Barry and Suzye Lawson would like to thank sponsors Bridgestone, Delta Airlines, Hacienda Pinilla (where the tournament took place), JW Marriott and Tamarindo Diria for making the event such a huge success.
Good news came to the nonprofit CEPIA when members of the Huacas Association voted in favor of donating 1,000 square meters of land behind the public school to the worthy organization. The land will be used to construct a community center. The idea was present to the community by Laetitia Deweer, president of CEPIA, along with the support of CEPIA board members Gerardo Brenes, Caroline Lemaire and Michael García. César Abarca, a Huacas Association board member, will join the CEPIA board to strengthen communication and strategic work between the two organizations to help the new project along.
The new community center, which will cost $300,000 to build, will offer prevention and education services and psychological and recreational facilities for children, teenagers and adults from low-income families in the Santa Cruz area. The center will host nighttime high school classes, after-school programs in sports, arts, English and recreation, support for those in extreme poverty, training for teenagers excluded from school, a public library and Internet café, environmental education and recycling, cultural events and more.
Anyone looking to be a part of the project or with fundraising ideas may contact Laetitia at 8301-8282 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
