LAKELAND, FL (December 18, 2019) – On Thursday, December 19, 2019, members of the Hispanic Club of Lakeland will be presenting school administrators at Rosabelle W. Blake Academy with a check for $5,000. The check presentation will take place at 9:00 a.m. in the school’s media center. The donated funds will be used to make improvements in the school’s media center. Half of the funds were raised at the recent 2019 Hispanic Festival, held this past October around beautiful Lake Mirror. This year marked the 22nd anniversary of celebration with thousands in attendance. Additional funds were donated by club members to reach the $5,000 gift.
“We are so excited to present this gift to Blake Academy, knowing it will help improve an area where kids go to learn and develop their imaginations,” said Susana Aviles, president of the Hispanic Club of Lakeland. “Our goal is to continue to look for ways we can support other schools across Polk County.”
The Hispanic Club of Lakeland was formed in 1987 when several Puerto Rican families met to foster unity among families from a variety of Latin American countries. Today the club has over 350 members and plays an active role in many community events and philanthropic efforts. Each year the club awards thousands of dollars in scholarships to students, many who are focused on careers in law enforcement or fire safety.
