The Monica Burguera Foundation will host its first ever Splash Party. The ultra-exclusive gathering will take place at the private residence of Nicolas Estrella, President of Estrella Insurance and will treat guests to an aquatic experience they will never forget. The purpose of the evening will be to celebrate the life of Monica Burguera and raise funds to carry out the Foundationâ€™s mission of promoting boating safety through education. In 2006, Monica Burguera and a friend lost their lives in a boating accident during the Columbus Day Weekend Regatta. The devastating loss led her family to create The Monica Burguera Foundation. The purpose of the Foundation is to create awareness of the dangers on the water and to educate the community so that no other family has to suffer such a terrible tragedy. The Foundation has partnered with the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary to offer free Boating Safety Courses. According to the U.S. Coast Guard Boating Responsibility handbook, in 2010 there were 65 deaths in Florida due to boating accidents.
