Last Dream Soccer Club was started by Mauricio Peres, Raffael Abbernade and Hugo Martinera back in 2000. After a tournament in Jamaica earlier that year, these three players decided to form a soccer club which encompassed their love of the game, together with the camaraderie, good-fellowship and fun of playing with friends and enjoying a day of sun, fun and soccer. From those humble beginnings, Mauricio and Raffael have slowly increased the exposure of the soccer club, while Hugo decided to create his own club in the area. Our club has many retired professional soccer players from various countries, who can continue to perform in a competitive manner. Our club started with only 4 teams, and has grown now to 20 teams with over 350 members, and a waiting list of players who are wanting to be part of this fun and competitive environment. We hope that the club will continue to grow and that more soccer players will come and be part of our organization, and follow our creed of brotherhood, convivial spirit, competition and community!Last Dream executive commission met with Palm Beach County Commissioner Jess R.

Santamaria lost a three-way race to replace her term-limited father, Commissioner Jess Santamaria, in the District 6 seat that represents Royal Palm Beach, Wellington and western Palm Beach County. Michelle Santamaria, 37, an attorney, jumped into the race just before the filing deadline, campaigning that she was the best candidate to carry on her father’s anti-corruption and open government push. She advocated better growth management to avoid overdevelopment of western agricultural land targeted by builders. She pledged to “follow the will of the majority of the people” when the commission decided on contentious development proposals. Getting 24 percent of the vote was an impressive accomplishment for a candidate running without party backing.
