The Dominican American Association was founded by Maria Perez, Juan Marquez and Lucia Gutierrez in 1993. We formed this organization to promote the cultural and social aspects of our culture. Mainly we celebrate the independence day, el dia de la Altagracia, mothers and fathers’ day, navidad and the festival of nations. It is a friendly and welcoming group that welcomes anyone of dominican descendance to join us. During the disaster in Haiti we donated money to the victims through the American Red Cross, and the other part to an orphanage in the Dominican Republic, Las Vegas called Hogar Del Padre Fantino. These last couple of years we have been working under the faithful leadership of Maria J. Perez, known as the embassador of the capital region. We are proud to be part of the festival of nations for twenty three years already.
THIS PAST YEARS WE DONATED THE MONEY TO TWO CHARITIES A) LA SECCION DE JESUS CON LOS NINOS QUEMADOS EN EL HOSPITAL GRULLON EN SANTIAGO B) EL HORFANATO HOGAR DEL PADRE FANTINO EN LA VEGA.
