Programa Sueños, a non-profit organization that raises funds to provide educational benefits to the children of San Antonio el Angel, Guatemala, will host its third annual spring fundraiser Wednesday, May 18, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Bedell Cellars in Cutchogue. The event will feature bites from local restaurants and food purveyors, as well as live music and Bedell wines.

Founded by former North Fork resident Jazmin Carrillo whose family moved from Guatemala to the U.S. 10 years ago, the organization began by providing scholarship programs to 10 children in 2013. In three years, Programa Sueños, which translates to “dreams program,” has grown to benefit 235 children and now offers music and sports programs. It recently partnered with Colgate to also provide dental care for the children. (more…)
