A Message From Our President, Nicolas Estrella

A Message From Our President, Nicolas Estrella Jr.

My fellow water aficionados,

The Monica Burguera Foundation is committed to advocating watercraft safety through education. The Foundation’s objective is to raise funds in order to provide programs that educate and create consciousness about watercraft safety in the hopes of decreasing accidents on the water.

Boating is one of the most popular recreational activities in the state ofFlorida. It leads the nation with a total of 1,010,359 vessels registered in 2008. Along with this high level of boater recreational activity there is also a high risk for potential boating accidents.

In fact, Florida led the nation in boating deaths between 1995 and 2005 with 696 deaths reported. Of the 657 boating accidents in 2007, 72 % of the operators involved had no formal boating education. Clearly, lack of education is an important contributing factor to boating accidents.

That’s why we hope that you’ll become a sponsor for the Monica Burguera Foundation.  We’re confident that together we can secure a safer environment on the water for our community. We invite you t get to know us and hear about our program by joining us at one of our many fundraising events throughout the year.

If you have any questions or would like to make a contribution, please contact usat 305-398-4609 or at Thank you in advance for your willingness to support the efforts of the Monica Burguera Foundation. Together we can make a difference in our community!
