WHAT: Get ready for the London 2012 Olympic Games and start
cheering for Team USA! Help Procter & Gamble (P&G) send off
Olympic Water Polo player and Los Angeles-native Brenda Villa
and her mom, Rosario, as they head to London 2012 Olympic
WHY: P&G is hosting the send off to remind shoppers of the
important role that moms play in helping their children reach
their full potential. Brenda's mom is a Mexican immigrant
who, along with her husband, raised three children. Roasario
never learned how to swim in her native Mexico but wanted her
children to be safe in the waters of Southern California so
she enrolled Brenda in swim lessons. As Brenda began to excel
at water polo, Rosario encouraged her to pursue her goals and
dreams in a sport that was completely unfamiliar to her.
WHEN:Sunday, June 24 from noon to 2 pm
WHERE:Costco Wholesale warehouse, 1345 North Montebello
Boulevard, Montebello, California. The event is free of
charge and open to all Costco members.
WHO:Brenda Villa is a world-class water polo player for U.S.
National and Olympic teams. She was a member of seven World
Championship teams and has two silver medals and one bronze
medal from her participation in previous Olympic Games.
