The charity lunch, organized by the Grupo America Foundation in Mendoza, had a record collection.
The 14th edition of the Solidaria Harvest, a charity lunch organized by the Grupo América Foundation in Mendoza, had a record collection of 16,172,500 pesos.
The lunch was attended by the new National Harvest Queen, María Laura Micames, and the Virreina, Luz Martina Mercol, who will participate in the charitable actions that will be carried out with the proceeds.
The objective of the Solidarity Harvest is to contribute to the integral development of children and adolescents in the province of Mendoza, through programs that meet the needs of civil society organizations, hospitals and schools.
The meeting was held at the San Isidro post, a place located in the middle of the Mendoza foothills, with a record attendance of more than 600 guests. 85 companies donated the funds with which it was raised more than 16 million pesos, through the purchase of cards for this meal, whose catering service was organized by the company “Kill the cook” led by the famous winemaker Alejandro Vigil.
Lunch usually brings together important figures from the local and national business scene, as well as officials and figures from the show such as Moria Casán or the president of River, Rodolfo D'Onofrio who participated in this edition.
Among the attendees were Sergio Massa, the national senator Miguel Ángel Pichetto, the presidential pre-candidate José Luis Espert and the national deputy of La Campora, Eduardo “Wado” de Pedro.
The Foundation reported that, in the 13 years of Vendimia Solidaria, they received contributions from 517 donors and raised more than 8 million dollars with which they benefited 560 institutions in Mendoza in the areas of health, education, and sport. These donations reached more than 359 thousand people throughout the province.
Daniel Vila, president of the Grupo América Foundation, announcing the amount raised, said: “This year we were hesitant to organize this meeting, but we decided to carry it forward the same, and despite the economic situation and the enormous difficulties we face, we have not only been able to hold this party, but we have broken all the records of collection”.
The meeting was led by Marinano Iúdica and Carolina Losada, and had as a closing show the performance of Mariano Cantero, leader of Los Enanitos Verdes, an iconic band of Mendoza rock.
