The American Red Cross South Florida Region will honor William Bullard of Diageo Latin America & Caribbean with the 2013 Humanitarian of the Year AwardÂ during a dinner reception.Â Bill Bullard has been instrumental in the development and growth of Learning for Life, an education and life skills program created and launched by Diageo Latin America & Caribbean in 2008.Â To date, more than 80,000 lives have been impacted by more than 59 programs in 30 countries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. With a focus in the areas of hospitality, retail, enterprise and bartending, Learning for Life transforms lives by offering individuals an opportunity to gain employment and become active, respected contributors to their communities.Â In June 2012, Diageo partnered with Florida International Universityâ€™s Chaplin School of Hospitality & Tourism Management and launched a unique program, the first initiative in the United States modeled after the successes achieved in Latin America and the Caribbean.Â The effort between Diageo and FIU offers job readiness training, certifications, and internship opportunities to the unemployed and underemployed populations in South Florida, and seeks to specifically include war veterans and their families.Â The chairman of this yearâ€™s event is Angela MarÃa Tafur de Barco, and the members of the host committee are Missy Carricarte, Fernanda Domit, Tuti FernÃ¡ndez, MarÃa Lowe and Winnie Pritchett. Judge Marilyn Milian of the TV show â€œThe People’s Courtâ€ will be the mistress of ceremonies at this year’s dinner.Â For more information or to purchase seats or sponsorships, contact Kenia Tedesco at 305-728-2512 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
