First Dominoes Party Hosted by LABA to Benefit Family Promise of Gainesville

Press release from Latin American Business Alliance, Inc.

The Latin American Business Alliance, Inc. (LABA) is throwing a Dominoes Party to raise funds for Family Promise of Gainesville (Family Promise). The proceeds will be used to buy 10 personal computers and 10 smartphones. These electronic devices will be donated to participants of the “Grow with Google” grant.

The “Grow with Google” grant provides training, tools, and expertise to Americans in need of digital skills to help them land the jobs they want, advance in their careers, and grow their businesses. Family Promise is a recipient of the Google grant and has enrolled 10 intrepid young people to participate.

“COVID-19 has created a new wave of remote jobs. Programs like ‘Grow with Google’ help bring digital skills and high-paying jobs to our community. When you tie this to the mission of the Family Promise, it creates a win-win situation where we can help at-risk families while lowering the digital divide in our community.” says David Flores, one of the organizers with LABA.

The event will be hosted in partnership with SCORE of North Central Florida. It will take place on May 17, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. at the UF Innovate | The Hub, which is located at 747 SW 2nd Ave, Gainesville, FL 32601. To make a donation, learn about sponsorship opportunities, or participate as a player, please contact Dwight L. Hulse at latinbusinessalliance@gmail.com or David Flores at david@onwarddev.com.
