The third annual Inti Foundation Halloween “Fun” Raiser at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 28, hosted by foundation founder Rosario “Chary” Rico-Toro, will transform the Temple Beth Am Gala Hall into a Spooky Forest with Daring Death Apples and Gambling Ghouls.
A spooky twist on the classic gala to raise funds for Inti Foundation’s support of medical, housing and social services that are critical to the survival and success of kids in underserved areas of U.S. and Bolivia.
Native to Bolivia and witness to the country’s thousands living in severe poverty, Chary founded Inti Foundation in 2007 to address the needs of Bolivian children living in poverty. Three years ago she expanded her mission to include U.S. Children.
The word “inti” is the native Quechua language equivalent for “sun” and serves as the foundation’s metaphor to “bring light” to the dire issues facing the children of Bolivia today.
Inti Foundation has had substantial success in helping serve this population by providing surgeries, building housing for poor families, and sponsoring orphanages, health and human service resources, and scholarships. The foundation also partners with community and health stabilization organizations, such as IKF Wonderfund; Miami, Orbis International, Baptist Health Systems; International, JAFCO; South Florida, and the Pediatric Oncology Center; Bolivia.
Currently, Inti has undertaken its largest project ever to fund the construction and endowment of a wetlab in the Institute National Opthamologico (INO) in La Paz, Bolivia to train surgeons to treat cataracts and address other causes of preventable blindness.
“I Invite all fun, caring people in Miami to dance the night away and enjoy a gourmet four course meal with lots of spooky tricks and treats and costumes,” Chary said.
