EWF Gala Fundraiser – EWF is gearing up for its biggest fundraising event of the year, held annually in conjunction with the UVCI Annual Meeting in October. The EWF Fundraiser will feature great food, great entertainment, raffles prizes and great Live and Silent Auction items! Prizes and bid items will include dinners, certificates for activities and tours, home & beauty products, great vacation packages, and many more! Eagle’s Wings Foundation distributes funds to charities in the destination cities of Villa Group resorts, and helps thousands of children, adults and the elderly through programs such as orphanages, assisted living facilities, education and physical therapy, and much more.
2014’s official designated charity recipient is “Pasitos de Luz” or “Little Steps of Light.” Proceeds from the auction at the UVCI Annual Meeting are benchmarked for this wonderful organization that provides programs for disabled children from low-income families. Additionally, at the UVCI Annual Meeting a special fundraiser Bus Tour will allow individuals the opportunity to see the current site and the new site being built, where they can witness first-hand the upgrades the organization is undergoing in their quest to provide a nurturing and therapeutic environment that allows parents to work while their children, who are unable to be mainstreamed, are safe and cared for. Programs and services for these special needs and underprivileged children include physical rehabilitation, psychological care, nutrition and much more.
