In addition to the numerous local organization and charities that George and his family support, they also have a desire to help underprivileged children in  underdeveloped countries.  To further this goal he was a Producer of the documentary film, Mi Casa Hogar.  The film reveals an in-depth look at the incredible story of the Casa Hogar children’s home in Acapulco, Mexico.  The World Premiere of the documentary film was in June of 2013 in Times Square, New York City, New York.  Mi Casa Hogar received two Suncoast Emmy Nominations and its Director received a 2013 Emmy Award in Miami, Florida. As a result of the film winning the prestigious 2013 Emmy Award we believe that this recognition will bring much needed awareness, donations and support to the orphanage, as well as, assist desperately under privileged children in many other countries.
