OUR EVENTS AND CAMPAIGNS
YOUR SERVE MATERS
Centro Mater Foundation is excited to invite you to the 1st annual "Your serve MATERS Pickleball Tournament".
The morning will include a raffle, swag for players, food and drink, an awards ceremony but most importantly to unite in our mission of caring for the most vulnerable kids in Miami Dade County. We are hoping to fill every court with players of all levels.
THE SPIRIT OF MATER
The foundation hosts The Spirit of Mater event. It is a beautiful and heartwarming event to honor very special people whose service exemplifies what the Spirit of Mater is all about. Many have left a legacy of support and inspired generosity for multiple generations. It is a vivid reminder that Centro Mater was founded on the belief that love for children brings hope for the future. The Spirit of Mater is alive.
Centro Mater Foundation hosts our annual Spring Maters event to raise awareness and honor people or institutions in the community that have contributed in different ways to fulfill the mission of the foundation. As part of the event, our guests have the opportunity to hear from one of our students and learn about our summer campaign, Memorias de Verano. The goal of this campaign is to raise funds in order to provide summer memories to the Children of Centro Mater.
MEMORIAS DE VERANO
With the generous support of so many, Centro Mater Foundation is able to provide 10 weeks of interactive activities, incredible fieldtrips, and learning opportunities to 850 kids that attend each year.
The children and parents of Centro Mater really appreciate the support and generosity!
For 16 years Centro Mater has organized a backpack drive. This year raised close to 500 backpacks and our students were ready to start a new school year. Centro Mater, a Catholic Charities organization, serves the neediest children in Little Havana and can really use our help! These families rely on our contributions to start the school year.
