Presidente brewery to donate 10% of festival tickets

The Cerveceria Nacional Dominicana announced yesterday that 10% of ticket sales for the Festival Presidente 2017 will be donated to help build houses for the 170 families that lost their homes in Boba, Nagua and in the provinces of Montecristi and Duarte. In addition a percentage of total beverages sales in October will be tagged on in order to reach RD$70 million for the reconstruction effort. The Festival Presidente will take place 3, 4, 5 November at the Felix Sanchez Olympic Stadium in Santo Domingo.

The announcement was made by Franklin Leon, president of the brewery, during a press conference to highlight their humanitarian aid platform, Dominicana Unida.

The company had already donated a million bottles of water to the Emergency Operations Center (COE) during the passing of Irma and Maria hurricanes. The water was sent to the islands of St. Martin, Dominica, Barbuda, Tortola and Puerto Rico, where the storm hit the most in coordination with PAWA Airlines, the Dominican Air Force and the Ministry of Foreign Relations.
