On May 31st, hundreds gathered for the first Paredes Foundation Festival. It was a day filled with hope and excitement. The gathering took place under blue skies which were filled by two mass releases of butterflies. Throughout the event, 175 attendees walked around Waterfront Lake behind the Paredes Foundation offices earning money for the Foundation’s programs which had been pledged in advance by sponsors.
