Bud Light, official sponsor of the Men's Mexican National Soccer Team, is donating $100,000 to the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) to commemorate the team's five-city American tour and make the dream of a college education a reality for Hispanics across this country.
The donation will be divided equally in the five states, in which the team will be playing a few of their friendly matches.
The initiative kicked off in the last match when Mexico played against Denmark in Phoenix, Arizona, where the first $20,000 check was presented to HSF by Bud Light representatives as part of the pre-game activities.
"Bud Light is committed to supporting organizations like the Hispanic Scholarship Fund that touch the lives of so many Latinos in the U.S. We are happy to commemorate our MNT sponsorship in a way that also benefits the community at large." said Bernardo Meza, Director of Multicultural Marketing for Bud Light.
"The Hispanic Scholarship Fund is dedicated to providing Latino families with the financial and educational resources they need to achieve a college education and with Bud Light's help, we are able to live up to our commitment," said Fidel Vargas , President and CEO of the Hispanic Scholarship Fund.
Anheuser-Busch is proud to be an HSF partner, having donated 25 million dollars in scholarships, impacting the lives of more than 24,000 Latinos across the country.
