P&G Hosts Send Off of Olympic Water Polo Athlete Brenda Villa June 24 at LA Costco

Procter & Gamble:

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 Games.

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.
