Dear Acorn supporters
Our fundraising Event has been put forward to Tuesday 9th June and will be held at Krakow Cafe-Bar, Venezuela 474 at 9.00pm. There will be an entrance fee of 20 pesos which includes a drink at the bar, well worth the fee in what should be an entertaining night to help us through difficult times.

If you or anybody else is in the city, please please come along and show your support! We are again teaming up with the Buenos Aires Pub Crawl at the end of the month, where the night will end at the exclusive KIKA nightspot.

In other news of Club Acorn, we are proud and extremely excited to announce our new link with the Boca Juniors Foundation. Three of our boys have already been to the programme, where they are given access to the world famous stadium, use the huge library and have dedicated professionals that provide school support and psychologists.

Its vital to us to build and maintain links within the community of La Boca and there is no link more prestigious in Boca, than Boca Juniors!

The project runs on Thursday mornings, to provide support for children not in school or those that attend in the afternoons and they are encouraged to work to get them back into education.

The excitetment was tangible when I walked the boys back from two hours spent in La Bombonera. We saw a few first team players and they were promised they would meet their idols in person if they stuck to the programme and made the effort to improve their reading skills.

With the Boca Juniors project and Club Acorn, we have a real hope now for these kids and we are all so proud and excited for them that they might get to meet their heroes! (not without putting the work in first!)
Aguante Club Acorn
