Since Thursday’s press conference at which Bruce Sanchez Sr., and his son, Bruce Jr., Accused Drs. Alvaro and Dorla Rosado of misappropriation, the wife and husband fired back.
The conflict over the Ariel Rosado Memorial Education Foundation, formed in honor of Ariel Rosado, the couple’s son, has mainly to do with the Bruce’s perception of way the couple was handling the entity’s finances.
The Sanchezes, who are co-founders with the Rosado’s of the foundation, have accused them of improperly using the funds and of inadequately providing receipts.
On Friday, flanked by other members of the foundation’s executive, Dr. Alvaro Rosado explained that he never misused monies from his deceased son’s foundation. The board members denied any abuse of the monies and contend that the work of the foundation has basically halted because the Sanchezes have refused to sign cheques.
The board members say that cheques made out to the Rosados were reimbursements for out-of-pockets they made on foundation work.
The board also maintain that all payments and all receipts were properly documemted.
