Heroes Vacation for 17 injured US military Veterans
Los Sueños was thrilled to host 17 injured US military veterans from April 7th-11th for a Heroes Vacation. The soldiers were brought to Los Sueños through the Freedom Alliance Foundation, at the suggestion of Captain Tony Carrizosa from Galati Yacht Sales. Thanks to the generosity of homeowners who donated their condominiums and boats, tour operators and management companies that gave away trips and services, and Bill Royster who provided all meals, a welcome and awards dinner as well as logistics, these deserving soldiers were able to enjoy a wonderful time in paradise. The highlight of their trip was surely the two day “Jungle Rules” billfishing tournament, which resulted in 67 sailfish releases.
The people who made it all possible for our Heroes:
Tony Carrizosa the originator of the trip. Who got the community rounded up and presented the idea along with Freedom Alliance.
Galati Yacht Sales for donating a Condo.
Gerald and Virginia Lindholm (friends and customers of Galati Yacht Sales) donated a condo, the NEW 55 Viking "Rebel" and hosted a Welcome BBQ on arrival day. They really went over the top for this trip!
Lee Anderson (friends and customers of Steve Sprigg of Galati Yacht Sales Naples) Donated 72 Viking "Penny Perfect".
Our sincere gratitude goes out to the many people who made this event possible and most of all, to these real American heroes!
