On March 6th, Touro University had a talent night, all the proceeds were to the benefit of our Foundation. It was a fun night, we had the opportunity to enjoy the talent of many university students and at the same, time they enjoyed the talent of our Mariachi Estrellas de FAYM. They were selected  to close the event and to our happiness, our kids received a standing ovation. It was a success!!

Thank you Touro University for the invite and for select our Foundation.

Recently we had our Spring Recital.

We enjoyed the talent of our students and saw how proud they felt with the progress they made.

We also recognized Mrs. Mayra Aguirre for 6 years of dedication and support to our foundation.

 supported and helped us to make  this recital a very successful event.
