On behalf of The Christopher Aguirre Memorial Foundation, we would like to announce Isabella Bruce, our sixth recipient of the Annual Christopher Aguirre Memorial Scholarship. Isabella is a Wellington High School Senior who is pursuing her degree at Florida State University. She will be starting classes in the summer session.
Due to your generous donation to the Foundation, we have been able to give back to the community through educational and athletic opportunities. Without the assistance of community-minded individuals just like you, we would not be able to serve those in our area. We are also sending a number of children to summer camps at the Village of Wellington Parks and Recreation and the Boys and Girls Club of Wellington. In August, before the start of the new school year, our Foundation and The Shoes for School event partnering with Lake Worth Scottish Rite and Payless Shoes, will be distributing shoes to children in the community. These are just a few of the many events in the community that continue to be involved in.
Without partners like you, these programs would not exist and neither would our family foundation. We wanted to let you know the impact your generosity has on the community that we all call home.
We appreciate your generosity and future support of our organization. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns regarding The Christopher Aguirre Memorial Scholarship or our Foundation.
Thank you for your support!

Post 12 will assist with equipment and travel expenses for the baseball program.
||In December 2009, due to the countless
donations The Christopher Aguirre Memorial Foundation received, in addition to donating to Compassionate Friends of the
Western Communities, the Foundation, along with Wild 95.5 and Little Smiles, was able to fulfill a local child’s Christmas
wish list. Zachary Rooney is a 6 year old boy from Royal Palm Beach, who was diagnosed with brain cancer. Due to his expensive
medical treatment, his wish list was effected during the holidays. The Foundation purchased a Playstation3 and games for
Zac to unwrap on Christmas Day. Most recently with a break in his rigorous medical treatment schedule, Zac and his family
were able to go to Universal Studios and stay at the Nickelodeon Studios Hotel for a weekend with the expenses paid by the
