Jared Spirit of LoveThe event was filled with emotions and surprises such as the visit of three guests of honor: Jared, Angelito and Manuelito who represent the work of the LCCF’s Spirit of Love (Congenital Heart Defects) and Spirit of Joy (Cancer) programs. “A big thanks to Los Cabos Children’s Foundation, the doctors and all of you that support this amazing foundation. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to live. God bless you all.” Were the words of 13 year-old Jared who went up to the stage to express his gratitude after going through an open heart surgery last November of 2014.

The golf tournament followed by a gala dinner at Querencia and the entertainment by the acclaimed jazz blues band “Davina and the Vagabonds” made the perfect match for everyone who attended this fundraising event. It was a unique opportunity to have a great time while getting a chance to give back to the community by raising funds for the LCCF’s programs.
