Bill Brown Construction Company Sponsors Amacuequences Fundraising Soccer Competition
San Jose, California. August 15, 2007 -- Bill Brown Construction Co. is proud to announce its participation in the Soccer and Social Event of Amacuequences in San Jose, CA. The event will raise funds to support activities that will enable women in Amacueca, Jalisco, Mexico to become financially self sufficient.
Bill Brown Construction Company is a key player in this soccer and social event, both sponsoring the fundraiser and participating in the competition with two teams, BBCC1 and BBCC2.
The event will take place on September 1 from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and September 2 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Hillview Park, on Adrian Way and Ocala Avenue in San Jose, CA. In addition to the soccer competition, there will be delicious Mexican dishes and refreshing drinks.
With the migration of many of the men from Amacueca, the women are unemployed and unable to support themselves. Amacuequences is an organization whose mission is to help create employment opportunities for women and youth in Amacueca. To improve their quality of life and living conditions, Amacuequences' plans include a fish farm, toasted corn tortilla factory, chicken farm, and the industrialization and commercialization of coffee.
Formed in 2006 and comprised of residents of Amacueca and San Jose, Amacuequences' efforts are supported by Mexico's federal, state, and municipal governments.
