On behalf of Mr. Juan Figueroa, Sr., Executive Director of the VI Lottery, Mabel J. Maduro, Educational Outreach Manager delivered the following remarks:
“The VI Lottery is honored to be a sponsor of the Virgin Islands & Puerto Rico Friendship Festival: The New Generation Continuing the Tradition. We have been an avid supporter of this significant cultural and educational event since 2013 and strongly feel that it is an invaluable opportunity to continue building on the rich cultural and economic exchange that the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico have maintained for so many years.
VI Lottery believes in Making a Difference by contributing to initiatives that educate, advance economic development and strengthen the Health and Public Welfare of our community. We are optimistic that the series of events to take place over the next few days will ensure that The New Generation Continuing the Tradition will always value the rich and mutually beneficial relationship between the U.S. Virgin Islands and Commonwealth of Puerto Rico."
