Autogermana MINI recently made a donation to the CAP foundation.
Autogermana MINI recently donated $12,000 to the CAP Foundation, a nonprofit devoted to working for the welfare of pediatric cancer patients at the Puerto Rico Children’s Hospital.
The money was raised through the raffle of a glass piece by artist Marie France Lugo and Autogermana MINI, which donated $25 from the enrollment fee paid by hundreds of MINI enthusiasts to participate in the “MINI Takes the Island” rally held earlier this month.
Autogermana MINI executives — namely Enrique de la Cruz, general sales manager, Mariel Martínez, administrative manager, Juan Sánchez, sales manager and Daniel Mujica, IT manager — gave the donation to CAP Foundation Executive Director Dinorah Padilla during a recent visit to the hospital ward, where the little patients were also showered with gifts.
