Let's Help Aurelio Buy A Truck

Hello Friends, 

Aurelio Gomez has been part of the Pappo family for over 10 years. I can't recall him missing a day of work during that time.  

Aurelio was planning on returning home with his family in July of this year to start a business of his own.

Unfortunately, last week Aurelio became ill and can longer work. He will be heading home much sooner than planned and won't have enough time working to reach his goal. 

He needs a truck back home to be able to purchase and transport the supplies and products for his business. 

This is an opportunity to help him reach that goal. No matter how small or large of a donation, it all adds up.

In addition to this page-I am looking forward to raising a large amount of money at our Wine dinner on 3/4/18.

I sincerely thank you for your support of my friend.
