Major League Baseball super star Robinson Cano, second baseman for the Seattle Mariners, has been fortunate in life and now he is giving back in a big way. This month LatinTRENDS celebrates the benevolent efforts of this outstanding Dominican athlete. In his latest philanthropic endeavor, Cano and his non-profit organization RC22 teamed up with The Dominican Republic Education and Mentoring Project, DREAM, to build a high quality Montessori Preschool and Education Center in Cano’s hometown of San Pedro de Macoris. LatinTRENDS longtime partner of The DREAM Project recognizes Robinson Cano’s humanitarian commitment on November 12 at the 40/40 Club in New York. The Sueños 2015 The DREAM Project Annual Benefit will be co-hosted by past LatinTRENDS Magazine cover stars Leslie Grace and Henry Santos. Visit dominicandream.org for tickets and donations.
