On October 18, 2012, Universal Vacation Club dedicated an elegant dinner to Eagle’s Wings Foundation in honor of its 13th year making a difference in the lives of individuals and families in need living in various Mexican resort destinations.
Guests and EWF members enjoyed an evening of festivities including a raffle, silent auction, and live auction. Thanks to the generous efforts of EWF volunteers and friends, over $21,000US was donated to benefit various non-profit organizations in Puerto Vallarta.
Robert Kistner, a EWF Member Director and dedicated contributor for the last 13 years, was honored with the James McCarthy 2012 Award. Kistner’s generosity has helped EWF support thousands of individuals and families with financial assistance, healthcare, rehabilitation, clothing, scholarships, and school supplies.
In addition, EWF unanimously decided to dedicate a new philanthropic project as the “Robert Kistner Scholarships for Children.” Through this program, significant financial donations will be distributed to various programs in Mexico: $2,000US to the students of Volcanes, a Vallarta neighborhood; $2,000US to the children of Los Cabos; $500US for those in Cancun; and $500US for those in Loreto. In total, $5,000US will be budgeted to assist and encourage the youth of Mexico.
In appreciation, EWF recognized the continuous support of the Vallarta based DIF President, Magaly Fregoso, as well as altruism of Eva Contreras, Robert and Ana Kistner, Cesar Sanchez, Sara Cardona, and Deborah McPherson, EWF President.
