Operation Go Quickly is immensely thankful to Juan Angulo, Danny Leal and the entire team at SYNC MG, and to their sponsors, for a great Arts N Beats fundraiser in Dallas, Texas.
Juan and Danny really connected with the mission of Operation Go Quickly to help people who are disadvantaged by physical disability. We were extremely impressed with the SYNC MG team, not only because of their desire to help us, but because of their extreme hard work to produce and execute the event, and because of their incredible God-given talents in marketing and promotion.
Operation Go Quickly is greatly encouraged to see our vision shared by young people who have a heart and care about their fellow human beings who are most in need.
Thank you, Juan Angulo and Danny Leal, and thank you to SYNC MG, and thank you to the event sponsors!
