ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The organizer of the Rochester Puetro Rican festival and his wife were named NextGen Rochester’s 2019 Young Philanthropists of the Year.
“The Dynamic Duo” Orlando and Denishea Ortiz serve the community in many ways, bringing their drive to organizations and supporting Rochester financially.
"We were blessed to be supported by many organizations and people in the community so [...] as we're getting older and kind of establishing ourselves in Rochester we want to make sure that we also provide that same opportunity to others," Orlando said.
The Ortiz family also honors the memory of their son with an annual book drive to benefit Golisano’s Children’s Hospital.
