On October 3rd, The Roberto Carcelen Foundation held its first annual charity gala at the Washington Athletic Club in Seattle, WA. The sold out event was attended by several local and international personalities including members of local media, business owners, artists, and political officials from the US, Peru and Latin America.
The fundamental aim of the Roberto Carcelen Foundation is to develop programs for children in the US and Latin America centered in computer science and athletics. The goal of this gala was to foster awareness of the foundation’s mission and raise funds to kick start projects here in the State of Washington and in Peru.
The Roberto Carcelen Foundation is grateful for the partnership and support announced with The Seattle International Foundation. The SIF has been instrumental in providing guidance and support and will be matching the donations received on the night of the gala.
Attendees to the gala were presented with an emotionally touching short film titled, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” created by local Seattle startup Churro Media. The film followed RCF’s founder as he traveled to Cusco, Peru.
RCF was honored to welcome keynote addresses from journalist Allen Schauffler and RCF’s Executive Director Roberto Carcelen.
The evening was complete with a silent auction, dinner, Pisco tasting, live music and a performance of Opera Arias by Seattle opera singer Dan McGraw.
Special thanks to Churro Media, Grupo Bestow, Eagan Family Charitable Fund, The Seattle International Foundation, Pisco Porton, and the RCF team for making this evening possible.
The foundation is excited to announce that members of the RCF team will be attending the Microsoft Education Global Forum next month in Miami.
Please look forward to updates regarding the foundation’s work in the near future.
Todo es Posible!
