Emiliani Project Second Annual Charity Golf Tournament
Mark your calendars! The Emiliani Project will be hosting its second annual charity golf tournament on Monday October 17. The event will take place at The Crossings at Carlsbad golf course, a beautiful golf course with views of the ocean and surrounding county, nestled in the heart of North County San Diego.
We would like to get the word out to as many golfers as possible, to join us for a fun day of supporting a good cause. These events are fun because golfers of all skill levels are invited and encouraged to participate – and there will be contests, prizes and memories to be made. Additionally, should your business would like to sponsor the event through donations for our silent auction or participating with hospitality or sampling-related giveaways, we are looking for companies willing to support. Dinner following play will be provided with a short program about the Emiliani Project, and what we are achieving to change the lives of children here in the U.S. and abroad.
You can register for the event on our tournament website at emilianiproject.org/golf-tournament/
April Mission Trip & Upcoming August Mission Trip
The Emiliani Project recently traveled with a group of volunteers to Medellín to work in the Hogar and to help with construction of the new home. These volunteers were inspired by our work, and the trip concluded with a festive BBQ at the hogar for the kids and volunteers, followed by a special field trip with the kids to the Medellín aquarium and and planetarium. Thanks to our volunteers for making this trip such a success: these volunteers raised more money than was needed to cover their travel expenses, so the balance was donated to the Hogar for the operation of the home. Thank you for your generosity!
Our Summer 2016 Mission trip departs for Colombia soon. From July 30 to August 7th, volunteers will be joining us in our work at the Hogar (the home) working with the children, and also at the new home which is under construction, helping lend a hand in the project’s completion. For many, this trip is not only an opportunity to experience the work of The Emiliani Project first hand, but can be a very spiritually nourishing experience. Please pray for the volunteers and we thank them for their service to the children.
If you are interested in future Missions trips, please contact Chuck Navarette at [email protected]. We will be announcing dates soon for the next trip.
Our New Website is Now Live!
The Emiliani Project launched a new website recently, to better showcase our mission, serve the needs of our organization, and to raise awareness as our outreach has grown to people around the country and indeed around the world. The new website now features a Spanish language site. Our thanks to OC Sites for their generous donation of the project time to create and launch our new website. Please visit us and see all the improvements at www.emilianiproject.org.
