Betty Bruquetas Celebration of Service Fund

  This is an honorary fund that will support our Celebration of Service Service Award 2022, while honoring our esteemed past president of RPCVGCFL.

Newtown Nation

Each year we fund raise and provide services for a community humanitarian project, presenting our Celebration of Service Award.  This year we have chosen to ally with Newtown Nation of Sarasota, an African-American organization of concerned citizens dedicated to creating solutions for a healthier, happier & safer community through cooperation and education.  Defending civil rights, they voice a strong message of real love, true compassion & unconditional acceptance for all members of the ever-changing world around us.  They reflect our belief that Justice demands Freedom, Dignity & Equal Rights for All People, without exception. 

Newtown Nation’s founder and director, Valerie Buchand, states: “Character, stability, development and self-esteem are key elements of being successful.  Developing a life plan and seeing your success are part of what this partnership will bring to the people of Newtown.“
