Hello RAC Members,
As many of you know, after the island of Puerto Rico was struck by Hurricane Maria in September, homes were destroyed and buildings, including competitive swimming pools, could not be maintained the way they use to be. Within the past couple of weeks, Emmanuel Lanzò has brought three Puerto Rican elite level swimmers, Barbara Caraballo, Andres Solivan- Riverato and Yeziel Morales to Ridgefield. Because they are swimmers at such a high level, they cannot afford to take months off of training and Emmanuel knew he could help by giving them the opportunity to train here with RAC. Ridgefield Apartments has been generous enough to provide them with a place to stay while they are here training with us. In order to raise money for some of their basic expenses like food, clothing and other personal items, we will be having a fundraiser this Wednesday, November 22nd, from 4:00-8:00 PM at the TIGER’s DEN and 15% of profits will go to them. Please consider stopping by and enjoying some great food (cause who wants to cook the night before thanksgiving!?) and helping out a great cause! Thank you!!
