Please join Mark Rollins, Executive Vice President, Westchester office, Brown & Brown of New York, Inc., this November on a house building trip to Masaya, Nicaragua. Click here to view the official save the date!
Mark began our Business Leader program in 2004 and has traveled to Nicaragua over 13 times since his first trip back in 2002. Mark and his fellow Business Leaders have raised tens of thousands of dollars for our housing project in Masaya over the years. This year they have set a new goal to raise the funds needed to develop the entire community Comejen IV in 2018, a community inside the municipality of Masaya. Mark, along with Business Leader Roger Sitkins have renewed their commitment to our site in Masaya to raise $100,000 this year so they can begin building this November with Mark’s Fall Business Leaders Trip, followed in February of 2018 with Roger’s Winter Business Leaders Trip and again next April with the Spring Business Leaders trip.
Business Professionals from all over the country set out to raise between $1,000.00 and $5,000.00 each by either using personal funds or their business contacts to support BTC efforts to bring suitable housing and development projects to various communities in Masaya. As part of the Bridges to Community 5 year plan for Masaya, Comejen IV will receive 16 new houses, 2 schools will be repaired, 2 water systems will be installed and several hundred trees will be planted. Help us replace this house with the one next to it!
These trips typically construct 2 houses under the direction of Bonnie Gordon, the Masaya Site Coordinator since 1999 and her support staff member David Sandino and head mason Carlos Ortiz. Join us for a great week of work, friendship building and camaraderie.
