On Friday October 8th, a very special event took place in Aguadilla!
The Friends of Puerto Rico and Café Ama Team prepared for a day full of golf, laughter, coffee and purpose in Punta Borinquen Golf Club. A special thanks is in order to our Gold Sponsors: Ferries del Caribe, Southwest Airlines, Mendez & Co., Suiza, First Medical, CBX Global & Honeywell. Without you, this event wouldn't have been possible!
Café Ama & Amapola were front and center, with Ismael from O Positivo Café brewing cups of love as guests made their way into the lobby.
Over 70 players attended! With breakfast, coffee and goodie bags in tow, the event began with a few words from our own Angelique Sina, and Julio Roldán, mayor of Aguadilla.
Throughout the day, the players aimed for a hole-in-one in hopes of winning our grand prizes. With $10,000 dollars, a table full of tech equipment and a brand new car on the line, everyone was on their A game!
