Eagle’s Wings Foundation Update: Hard at Work for the People of Mexico
Eagle’s Wings Foundation is the Villa Group’s sister charitable organization. It was founded by Villa Group partners and member Jim McCarthy to show appreciation and give back to the unforgettable destinations and their communities that members enjoy year after year.
