July 1, 2014 – Martin Engineering co-sponsored the fourth annual fund-raiser to support the children of Casa Hogar de Cabo San Lucas, an orphanage dedicated to providing active care and personal well-being for boys in need in Baja California Sur, Mexico. With the theme of “Healing Hearts, Building Futures,” the benefit was held at Las Ventanas al Paraiso (which translates as “windows to paradise”), one of the premier luxury resorts in all of Los Cabos. The significant support from Martin Engineering and its shareholders helped raise more than $500,000 for the boys of Casa Hogar, by far the organization’s most successful event ever. With a capacity for 60 residents, Casa Hogar is currently home to 41 boys between the ages of three and seventeen. Although most are received from state or federal agencies, the facility receives no government support. Opened in February of 2008, the registered non-profit organization is privately-funded, maintained solely by donations, fundraisers and special projects. A staff of 18 covers three shifts, 24/7.
