On Thursday, December 10, 2015, The Seahorse Fashion Cuisine in Wellington, Florida, and Diamante Atelier welcomed guests to a “December to Remember” fundraiser.
Juan Gando, owner of Oli’s, The Grille and The Seahorse Fashion Cuisine Restaurants, has been a major local supporter of JustWorld International for the past three years. Juan Gando shared how JustWorld’s work tugs at his heartstrings, reminding him of the poverty and corruption that still exists in his home country. Originally from South America, the successful business owner has made leaps and bounds to support JustWorld through several sponsorships as well as taking the extra step to plan the Seahorse Fashion Cuisine “December to Remember” event with Diamante Atelier.
Juan Gando explained, “After my first year of sponsoring beverages for the JustWorld International Gala, my involvement has continued to evolve. When you sponsor an organization like this, it’s great to see how the community comes together to help; they really understand the cause.”
Jessica Newman, Founder and Director of JustWorld International, attended the “December to Remember” fundraiser and shared that she is extremely grateful for the support of local business owners such as Juan Gando. “It is through the help of the equestrian community and local businesses that JustWorld is able to support more than 6,000 children around the world.”
Juan Gando is once again sponsoring the 13th Annual JustWorld International Gala on January 15, 2016. Located in the heart of Wellington at Belle Herbe Farm in Grand Prix Village, the night will bring Carnival do Rio to Wellington. Hosted in a tent beneath the stars, this magnificent social get-together will bring together more than 650 guests to raise support for more than 6,000 children at JustWorld partner projects.
JustWorld would like to thank the Seahorse Fashion Cuisine and Diamante Atelier for their support! For more information about JustWorld and the 13th Annual JustWorld International Gala, please visit: https://gala.justworldinternational.org.
