You all know that NEXT WEEK is Marc Anthony’s concert, Live!, what you might not know is that the non-profit foundation Maestro Cares, which builds orphanages for children in Latin America, will have a charity dinner at Sophia’s Bar and Grill La Marina next Thursday March 24th in support of the Niños de Cristo.
Marc Anthony, one of the founders of Maestro Cares, will host the fundraising dinner that will take place at 8:00 pm at the luxurious SBG location in Casa de Campo. Marc Anthony is well known for his charity work and has been helping the Niños de Cristo Orphanage for some time. In 2014, he was here when they opened the new boys home and even broke ground when they first started construction. In early 2016, he and Juan Luis Guerra visited Orfanato Niños de Cristo following their Altos de Chavón concert in December. See the pictures in the gallery below!
I am very happy to continue working and doing activities for the orphanage. You already know of my love for the Dominican Republic and especially for the place I consider my home in this country: Casa de Campo Resort. – Marc Anthony

There is no greater moment than when people come together for love. Yesterday, Wednesday April 2nd 2014, the Maestro Cares Foundation brought the magical Orfanato Niños de Cristo orphanage in La Romana into the international spotlight.
About Niños de Cristo Orphanage
Orfanato Niños de Cristo is an orphanage located in the Dominican Republic that was founded in 1993. It houses more than 160 children who have been abandoned and/or victims of abuse, both from the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Orfanato Niños de Cristo is dedicated to improving the lives of the children, focusing on education, health and housing, as most of the children spend their entire childhood and young life in the orphanage. The orphanage has two housing facilities, a privately-run school and recreational areas.
The Maestro Cares Foundation
The Maestro Cares Foundation (MCF) was founded by international pop superstar Marc Anthony and entrepreneur Henry Cárdenas in January 2012 as a non-profit organization established to benefit homeless and neglected children in developing Latin American countries. Maestro Cares seeks to offer assistance to these children while supporting social services and other development programs. Soon after it was founded, the Orfanato Niños de Cristo in La Romana was chosen as the first beneficiary of the cause.
“Maestro Cares improves the quality of life for orphaned children throughout Latin America. We work to achieve our mission by providing housing, classrooms, health clinics, dining and recreational facilities.” — Marc Anthony
