More than 8,000 Pro Mujer clients, employees, regional managers and executive board members gathered on Saturday, October 19th, to celebrate its 6th Clients’ Day edition at the Ramon Tahuichi Aguilera stadium in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. The gala, which featured music and games, included appearances by special guests Pro Mujer cofounder Lynne Patterson and Stanley Eisenberg, an extremely valued donor and friend.
After Santa Cruz Regional Manager Isaac Lescano welcomed attendees, Rodolfo Medrano, Director of Business and Country Operations, congratulated clients and commended staffers for their singular dedication to client service. In her remarks, Lynne Patterson thanked all those present for participating in the event and acknowledged clients in particular for all the work they do to ensure their families’ wellbeing. “My heart is with you,” she said.
Pro Mujer staff kicked off the musical portion of the festivities by performing the “Carnavalito” folk dance. Afterwards, the neighborhood centers presented beautifully choreographed and costumed traditional dances representing the various regions of Bolivia. The staff also showed off their singing prowess, and clients competed to be crowned queen of the event. However, the most highly anticipated part of the proceedings was a raffle for such prizes as refrigerators and sets of dinnerware.
At the end of the event, everyone went away inspired by Lynne’s words and full of hope for a bright future.
