Over the 5 years we lived in Punta Mita we became closely involved with Peace Punta Mita both in my role as General Manager at the St Regis Punta Mita as well as a family. Tatiana taught the kids english for 3 months upon graduating from Bath and loved it! From the St Regis we would serve the kids breakfast every Wednesday – each division in the hotel played host to the breakfast. We got to know many of the kids over those years and naturally we raised a lot of funds for Peace through special events at The St Regis. Often guests would join us to serve breakfast as would any senior Starwood executives – always an enrichening experience.
Just prior to resigning from The St Regis Sabine and I discussed starting a education fund at Peace to help put kids through high school – we had the support of a number of the Punta Mita Residents so we moved forward
Today a year and a half later the Foundation has given 7 kids scholarships to put them through high school – both Sabine and I are thrilled and albeit from a distance continue to monitor and promote the foundation
