Solmar Hotels and the Grand Solmar Foundation are excited to announce that $10,000 was raised for underprivileged families in the Cabo San Lucas area at the 2013 Baja Film Festival.
The Grand Solmar Foundation receives the vast majority of its donations from generous members and employees, but a little help from Hollywood never hurts. Thanks to the film industry and movie aficionados that visited last year’s Baja Film Festival, The Grand Solmar Foundation was able to raise $10,000 designated for disenfranchised and underprivileged children and families in and around the Cabo San Lucas area.
Over the course of four days, the Baja Film Festival presented more than 35 films including six world premieres and 14 Mexican and Latin American Premieres that attracted thousands of attendees from all over the world. Every night of the festival, a charity gala was held at an indoor theatre screening high-quality films from around the world that included guest appearances from the actors themselves. These big-name actors included such renowned film stars as Edward Norton, Matt Dillon and Mellissa Leo. The revenue generated from the admissions of the screenings was then split between two charities: The Sahuaro Foundation and the Grand Solmar Foundation.
The $10,000 raised at the festival will be put toward expanding outreach programs to help underprivileged youth in Cabo San Lucas. The Grand Solmar Foundation provides a host of valuable services and products for the children of Cabo San Lucas including building new facilities at local orphanages, providing blankets for underprivileged families in the winter, teaching children about the environment by donating a day for the children to swim with dolphins and donating gifts during the holiday season to ensure every child can feel the joy of the holidays.
The Grand Solmar Foundation would like to thank the organizers, patrons and award recipients at last year’s Baja Film Festival for their contributions to the children of Cabo San Lucas. It is this same level of generosity that first inspired Solmar Hotels CEO Francisco Bulnes to write a check for $20,000 and begin the charity.
