Nothing pulls at our heart strings more than a child without a holiday gift. The American Club of Madrid has partnered with Toys for Tots, our beneficiary of this year’s Gala.
We are proud to work with our U.S. Embassy Marine Security Guard Detachment partners in Madrid who will work with area schools and Spanish organizations to collect new toys for local children in Spain.
Additionally, we are proud to announce we have named the MD Anderson Cancer Center as our Premio Puente Award winner - The ‘Premio Puente' was created in 2012 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the American Club of Madrid. This distinguished award recognizes entities and individuals dedicated to excellence whose work strengthens the ties and relationships between Spain and the United States, whether on a corporate, philanthropic, diplomatic, humanitarian, artistic or scientific level.
