nov 1, 1979 - Tito Punte Scholarship Fund
Tito created a scholarship fund for Latin percussionists at the Juilliard School.
"The scholarship was a dream of mine for a long time," Puente later said, explaining, "In the Latin community, we have a lot of gifted youngsters who don't get an opportunity to develop their talent because of a lack of money. Long after, I'm gone, the fund will be helping kids."
