What fabulous musical entertainment was provided by delightful Emalee Hill accompanied by her father Rob, and featuring younger sister Ruby for a premiere song! Just how proud was that Dad ! Not too shabby indeed! This fundraiser for the Tercera Edad seniors of Bucerias was held at the El Eden nursery, (a tropical location available to rent) on Sunday 22 Feb, following upon the highly successful RnR just the night before for the orphanage. What a charity caring and giving community this is !
The all you can eat BBQ was cooked by the Tercera Edad’s President, Sr Cirino, (he just loves to do this!) and ably assisted by a team of really good looking guys. Coleslaw, potato and pasta salads were generously donated by Luna Lounge, thank you! The winner of the 50-50 (totalling 4,600 pesos) was Heidi Howard who, having briefly held the money, grinned and donated it all back for the benefit of the TE seniors. Referring to her generosity she simply replied: “I’ve always wanted to have the chance to do this”. Thank you Heidi! And thanks to Glenn & Tanya (YoYoMos) who consistently support charities in various ways and with yet more tequila donations, and to Terry the lucky winner of a bottle of tequila, for doing the rounds and inviting all to have a shot. Salud! The event raised just over 30,000 pesos. And salud indeed for the seniors, those who now have teeth and medical treatment from funds raised, and food – particularly from the hens raised, the eggs laid, and the bread made at the Tercera Edad facility under the direction of Sr Cirino, their “hands on” President.
