Los Cabos, Mexico (March 19, 2012) - Solmar Hotels & Resorts Cabo San Lucas is pleased to announce the launch of the Solmar Foundation, a non-profit organization created in honor of the late Don Luis Bulnes Molleda, the founder and visionary behind the Solmar collection, to help those in need throughout Los Cabos. In an effort to continue the noble work started by Don Luis, the Solmar Foundation supplies critical social services not covered by the government and focuses on education, the development of marketable skills, and medical assistance.
"Our leader Don Luis was always willing to help the less fortunate during his many years here in Los Cabos; the Solmar Foundation is a representation of his legacy and his unwavering love and commitment to this destination," said Ricardo Orozco Managing Director of Solmar Hotels & Resorts. "We are to honored to have the opportunity to assist those in need throughout our community through the foundation and with the help of our valued guests."
Don Francisco Bulnes, son of Don Luis, officially established the Solmar Foundation with the first contribution of $20,000 in October 2011. Guests of Solmar Hotels & Resorts will have the opportunity to donate to the important cause upon checkout with an optional donation starting at $10 for the Solmar Foundation. The donation is completely optional and offers guests a rewarding way to give back to the community whose service has helped make many years of wonderful vacation memories possible.
The Solmar Foundation also works with public agencies and non-government organizations to combine resources and direct assistance to the areas where it will do the most good. The foundation is a proud sponsor of the non-government Casa Hogar Orphanage in Cabo San Lucas providing shelter and education to 24 boys ages six to seventeen.
