Invaluable contribution for a wonderful task
The effort paid off.

Helping Hands, the non-profit organization formed by U.S. Embassy employees in Venezuela, raised Bs. 60 million with a magnificent golf tournament that took place at the Valle Arriba Athletic Center.


William Brownfield, the U.S. ambassador to Venezuela received the check from the generous sponsors at a lovely cocktail ceremony at the Marriott Hotel, where Embassy representatives, as well as the diverse sponsors who made their donations in checks or presents; gathered to make toasts to another successfully completed task.

This golf competition, which has also been held in countries such as Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Panama; and Colombia, reunited 104 participants.

Some of the sponsors in the Platinum Plus category were: Caterpilar & Ven-equip; the Platinum category: DHL, Motorola, Oppenheimer & Co. Inc., Eveready de Venezuela; the gold category was formed by: Avior, Banco del Caribe and Scotiabank, Banco Provincial, Ricoh de Venezuela, Sidor and Terminal Maracaibo.

The Silver Plus was Protinal; and part of the Silver were; AIG Insurance, Cargill de Venezuela, Corporación EXXA Internacional, Dipacar, Gedisa, Marsh & McLennon, Quimsa, Schering-Plough and Servicio Halliburton.

There were also important donations in presents for the participants – and some of the companies that collaborated were: The Daily Journal, Continental Airlines, Copa Airlines, Le Club, Nike de Venezuela, Tommy Hilfiger, Turaser, Siemens Westinghouse; to mention some of them.

We are proud to be part of this human initiative that has ended up in excellent and productive results to support different organizations, which operate in the Metropolitan Area of the capital, looking after women, children and the elderly; to offer a better quality of life.
