A Successful and Fun First Annual Hogar Del Niño Fundraiser in Todos Santos
The First Annual Hogar Del Nino Fundraiser held at Villa Santa Cruz in Todos Santos was a huge success not to mention lots of fun for all.
The event held on December 19, 2011, was a big success thanks to our wonderful attendees, the excellent five course dinner prepared by Sergio and the La Casita crew, five wines presented by Mac of La Bodega de Todos Santos and elegantly hosted by Jessica and Matt of Villa Santa Cruz, the generosity of the auction item donors, the 50/50 cash raffle participants (and the generous winner who returned her winnings to the children!), the donations of community sponsors, and over 20 volunteers who acted as servers, dishwashers and all purpose helpers.
We especially thank our silent auction item donors: Doug West, Ezra Katz, Hotel Casa Tota, Arriba de la Roca, Rancho Las Cruces, El Tecolote, David Arthur Vineyards, Linda Summers, Marilyn Canepa and Nancy Serfas. The evening was made possible through generous donations of time and money from numerous community sponsors. Amazing things can be accomplished when we work together, and the event on December 19 was great proof of that. Joel and Alicia Hernandez from Hogar del Niño are very grateful for the warm community support. Lisa Welsch from Coldwell Banker Riveras, Nancy Serfas and Nancy Naigle wish to thank everyone who had a hand in this event to help the children at Hogar del Nino.
If you would like to become a ‘Padrino’ or a godfather of a child, we invite you to do so through this page: padrinoproject.com. You can sponsor a child on a recurring monthly basis, or with individual deposits. Hogar el Niño receives no governmental support and depends on the donations and good people like you. Thank You!
