Joey Goffstein’s Beautiful Dream

Joey Goffstein of Teaneck is set to return home this week after spending 10 days in the Dominican Republic. Joey was on the “Lin­dos Sueños” program, a humanitarian mis­sion sponsored by Major League’s Boston Red Sox and Jet Blue Airways. Lindos Sueños trans­lates into English as “Beautiful Dreams.” The Lin­dos Sueños program strives to bring people of different backgrounds together through the common appeal of baseball and community service.

Created in 2004, with an incredibly gener­ous donation from a baseball-loving mom and philanthropist, Lindos Sueños has sent Amer­ican teens to the Dominican Republic every year since the program’s inception. Once the American teens arrive in the Dominican, they perform community service and play baseball alongside 10 teammates from across the Do­minican Republic. The 20 teens serve a com­munity in need each morning and spend each afternoon playing baseball at the Red Sox Do­minican Academy. Program sponsor JetBlue Airways donates roundtrip flights for all 20 teens and members of the Lindos Sueños staff. Once again, Joey has served his community proudly and we know the other participants gained as much from him as he did from this wonderful experience.
