CONGRATULATIONS TO THE AMIGOS RECYCLERS! It was a nail biting fight to the finish but – Recyclers won the best Christmas tree by having the most online votes! The voting closed and winners were announced at 8pm last night. Some votes came in past the deadline, but you know rules is rules…. The Recyclers 10 ft tall tree on display at Rosa Mexicano received 99 online votes. Spay n Neuter displayed at Ixta and Children’s Library displayed at Galeria del Sol tied second with 89. Amigos Recyclers also scooped the People’s Choice by collecting the most pesos before 8pm. Never an easy task collecting!
There were 3 tourists for the Independent Judges category with honorable mentions going to the creators of trees as follows: the Children’s Library at Galeria del Sol; the Winged Iguana/Splash of Glass for Amigos; the Moona ladies at Bucerias Art for the Tercera Edad; and the BBs for Spay n Neuter at Ixta. At the end of the day, all the participating charities are winners! Well done everyone! Thanks to the businesses who hosted all the trees and of course thanks and congratulations to Floydilou Kerr of Bucerias Art Gallery for coming up with the idea and organising this unusual event.
