The third annual ¨celebrate life¨ Interprepa event to benefit FANLAP was held February 23 and 24, 2012.  In addition to inviting various senior high schools to an event where students can have clean fun without alcohol or drugs, this event is also meant to create awareness in the high school community of marginal areas of La Paz where students need help to attain one of the basic necessities of our youth, a high school education.
The celebration started with motivational speakers at Cinepolis on the 23rd at 5:00 p.m, with a few words from Professor Martin Gonzalez Fiol, Director of the state DIF (family development agency of the state government), followed by Actor Lucas Villalobos with a motivational talk of valuing youth.  We were then thrilled by a video presented by racecar driver, 2008 winner of the Baja 500, Luis Ramirez Payan, who spoke of his career.
Then came the main event on February 23: a talent and fashion show held at Hotel Gran Plaza in the Maria Teresa Salon.  A dance by ten children of FANLAP, with Luis Villalobos, choreographer opened the show.  This was followed by a talent show with the following senior high schools participating:  Mar de Cortez, St. Johns, Juan Pablo, U.A.G., Colegio California, CBTIS 230 and CBTIS 62, after which a stellar performance by ¨Emanuel¨, who is quite famous with the adolescents of La Paz, delighted the crowd.
Throughout the evening, a video featuring FANLAP and various sponsors of Interprepa 2012 was played on the screen.  You may view this video on YouTube by clicking PRO FAN LAP CELEBRA LA VIDA.
The office of the Honorable Governor Marcos Covarrubias Villaseñor was represented by the coordinator of the Secretary of Government Lic. Miguel Ángel Luna.
We are especially grateful to Trinidad Rios for organizing this magnificent event, and thank you to all the students, sponsors, fashion designers and volunteers who helped Trini to make this a resounding success.
Together we are making a difference!!!
