Santa Ana’s Youth Festival
Original report by: Eduardo “Grand Admiral ED” Jara, Costa Rica Outpost
This is what we would say a “two for the price of one” event. Santa Ana’s Youth Committee organized a “Youth Festival”- a day of cultural and entertainment activities to promote good values among the younger generations.
As part of the on going special events, the organizers arrange to fundraise on behalf of the upcoming TELETON. And then asked for special back up from the Rebel and 501st Legions. We sent a special deployment of troops to help with the cause.
TELETON, this is the biggest fundraiser event in Costa Rica and this year it is dedicated to the National Children Hospital’s department of Orthopedics, it also will support the regional hospital of Limon.
This year’s goal was to collect 630 000 000 colones (aprox US$ 1,251,275)
Thanks to Eduardo “Grand Admiral ED” Jara, Enrique Blanco with his son as Yoda, and Merilyn Ramirez from the 501st Legion for coming out and helping!
