“It has been a long time since the kids have asked for blankets,” Amores de Peñasco volunteer, Kathleen Duncan told Sonoran Resorts CEO, Fernando Anaya with sincere gratitude. It was only a day after Sonoran Resorts had used part of the funds raised from their annual Las Vegas Night for Charity fundraising event to purchase and install a heavy duty rooftop air conditioning unit at the DIF children’s crisis shelter in the San Rafael district of Puerto Peñasco.
Although the old unit had been out of service “for quite a while” the ducts were in working order so the cooler shown in the photos did the job, apparently quite well.
Mr. Anaya was quick to pass the gratitude on to the generous Casino “gamblers” made up of our inspired residents and visitors who love this great community and its local citizens. Purchasing the air conditioning unit was a decision made by First Lady Rafaela Felix de Figueroa, who serves as President of DIF, during a walk through the facility with Mr. Anaya.
Even after the purchase and installation of air conditioning, Sonoran Resorts still has additional funds dedicated to the Amores de Peñasco crisis shelter for improvements and equipment. The First Lady and her staff are in the process of analyzing the facility’s needs at this time.
“We are prepared to act immediately in fulfilling any requests by DIF and look forward to doing so. This shelter provides life-saving services to abandoned, neglected and abused children here”, remarked Fernando Anaya. “Sonoran Resorts are fortunate to have this fun event and so many generous people who participate to keep the funds flowing to such a worthy cause”, he continued.
Isn’t it nice to learn exactly where our donations through events like Las Vegas Night for Charity are going, and that they are actually making a difference in someone’s life?
