In a mystical environment full of charity, the community of El Paso get together for a good cause during the ‘Masquerade Gala’ night, to support the Diabetes Association of El Paso (EPDA).
In the framework of the 50th Anniversary and taking place at the Southwest University Events Center, attendees participated in different auctions to benefit the association.
The goal for this year is to raise 145 thousand dollars and exceed the amount of 2017, which was 124 thousand. “We all come to join and participate but I must say, this could not be possible without the support of Yolanda Arreola, who opens her home,” said Sandra González, director of EPDA.
The mission of this event is to support the Diabetes Association and promote summer camps so that children and adolescents diagnosed with the disease have fun and moments of coexistence.
Representatives of Speaking Rock and Soutwesth University, like the rest of the companies that participated in the gala evening, said they were proud and honored to contribute to the cause while having fun during the ritual full of good intentions.
