AES Dominicana Foundation’s 1st golf tourney for autism coming May 30
Santo Domingo.- The AES Dominicana Foundation on Wednesday announced its first fundraiser golf tournament for the Manos Unidas Autism Foundation, which will gather around 100 local golfers, May 30 in the ‘Teeth of the Dog’ links at Casa de Campo, La Romana.
AES Dominicana Foundation president Edwin De los Santos said the activity aims to strengthen the projects which the organization has been conducting since 2007, as part of AES Dominicana energy group’s corporate social responsibility, and to bring customers and stakeholders together for a noble cause in a friendlier environment.
"We selected this foundation, Manos Unidas for Autism, because it has touched us profoundly and we have seen the commendable work done for the study and treatment for the autism spectrum and thereby improve the quality of life of people living with this condition and of their families," De los Santos said in the keynote speech.
Manos Unidas Autism Foundation president Odile Villavizar said he was excited and immensely grateful that companies like AES focus their support on an organization that’s true to its goal of strengthening and supporting 350 families with one or two members with autism and continue to welcome new people in need.
