Proceeds from the event help the counseling center`s operations. The not-for-profit center helps youths and their families. The trip includes a six-night stay with breakfast for two at the Hotel Puente Romano, a five-star Grand Luxe hotel in Marbella, Spain. Located in the Mediterranean, the resort hotel offers a beach club with jet skis, water-skiing, and wind surfing; a tennis club and a state-of-the-art fitness center.
