Miracle Making in the City – Bruno Ocampo SVMP ’08

Hosted by Bob Woodruff of ABC News, the tournament offered an exclusive day of golf at the PGA West Course in Rye, New York famed with opportunities to golf with celebrity guests, onā€course games and luxury prizes. The evening featured networking with business leaders, celebrities, and sports figures, followed by an Awards Dinner with entertainment, auction items and an opportunity to meet the kids of Kidsave and Nutrir. Proceeds will be used to build the Nutrir Center for Integral Development in Barranquilla, Colombia, which will feed an additional 20,000 Colombian children daily.
