Day of the Child event to help Esperanza children’s home
The Esperanza Children’s Home is a place that does a lot of good. It’s a home for kids that have no family, or can’t stay with them because of various problems. Located outside of Rocky Point, you may have noticed the sign as you drive into town.
Coming up in April is the Mexican Holiday the Day of the Child. For the fourth year, there will be an event that helps support the kids at Esperanza.
Best of all, it will be fun for the kids.
On Sunday, April 28th, there will be a day of fun and games at the beach next to the Sonoran Sun Resort. Last year over 75 kids took part. It was a day of raffles and prizes, good food and fun games for kids and adults.
Over $50,000 dollars was raised at the event last year. The money went to build 2 houses for missionaries, as well as braces for several of the children. This year’s goal is to use the proceeds to construct a new home in the city for teenage boys.
This year, this Day of the Child event will receive sponsorship from various local businesses. They include Casago/Seaside Reservations, Colins Cantina, Realty Executives as well as The Mexico Children Foundation and The Friends of Esperanza who initiated with this cause.
