San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 1, 2009
The Palomita Education Fund is pleased to announce that NFL Star and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will be participating in its upcoming charity event, Piensa Mas Alla…Think Beyond, on May 29, 2009 at Terra SF in San Francisco. Romo has designed a unique, one-of-a-kind special edition t-shirt which will only be available through a live auction at the event, with all proceeds benefitting Latino education. As the only confirmed NFL star among this year's celebrity designers, Romo brings a unique athletic flair to an event that brings together fashion, art and Latino culture. Romo's latest efforts to improve youth education reflect his Midwestern roots and principled acts of kindness that balance out his football achievements.
Drawing on last year's success, the second annual Piensa Mas Alla…Think Beyond… event is expected to draw over 500 VIP's of the Latino community together in celebration and support of fashion, art and Latino culture. Other confirmed celebrity designers include Rosario Dawson, Eva Longoria-Parker, Andy Garcia, Jaslene Gonzalez, Maria Conchita Alonso, Melonie Diaz, Cesar Millan, Walter Perez, Valerie Cruz, LENA, Raquel Welch and Christina Milian. This is a great way to kick-off the summer and enjoy a luxurious evening while supporting a worthwhile cause. A Limited number of tickets for the event are available on http://www.palomitaclothing.com.
Tony Romo is an American football quarterback who plays for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League. Romo is also a Second-Generation Mexican American on his father's side. His grandfather, Ramiro Romo Sr., emigrated from Múzquiz, Coahuila, Mexico to San Antonio, Texas as an adolescent. The elder Romo cites Tony's success as an example of the possibilities afforded to immigrants in the United States: "I've always said this is a country of opportunities. If you don't get a job or an education, it's because you don't want to."
The Palomita™ Education Fund was founded in 2007 by Molly Robbins, a successful entrepreneur and Mexico City native.
