Fundraiser At the Home Of Maria Celeste Takes Place This Thursday
By Carl kruse
A reminder that the fundraiser to benefit “Para La Naturaleza,” takes place this Thursday, February 9th at the Miami residence of Maria Celeste Arraras. (See original Carl Kruse Nonprofit Fundraiser for Para La Naturaleza here).
Para La Naturaleza seeks to protect ecologically important lands in Puerto Rico with the ultimate goal of having 33% of all such lands protected by the year 2033. This is the organization’s “33 by ’33” objective. To date, more than 30,000 acres have been protected through the group’s efforts, representing about 16% of the total goal.
Para La Naturaleza fosters conservation but also provides immersive experiences in nature, educational resources via citizen-scientist programs and archaeological projects, and helps rehabilitate historically important properties such as the Haciendas La Esperanza and Buena Vista, several lighthouses and other vital installations.
In Miami, a gathering of ecologically minded people wanting to help Para La Naturaleza have joined forces to create “Group 33.” It is Group 33, spearheaded by Maria Celeste, that is organizing the February 9th fundraiser.
All donations to Para La Naturaleza are deductible to the full extent allowable by the U.S. I.R.S. Code. The organization can be contacted via its website at paralanaturaleza.org
