LolHa Super Bowl Fund Raiser Recipient

Many of us may not be aware of the educational source that is supported by local business owners and by  donations. “Transformar Educando A.C” is a civil association founded 18 years ago that has  community centers located in Puerto Aventuras, Akumal, and Chemuyil.  Here in Akumal the LolHa Super Bowl Fundraiser will be donating monies from the tee shirt sales and the SuperBowl board to help the Community Center in Akumal Pueblo.  The funds taken in from the sports board will be matched by Laura Bush Wolfe. Be sure to go cheer on your team and help the kids of Akumal cheer for a better tomorrow!
