Don´t forget to reserve Sunday, December 2, for the 25th anniversary of the annual Subasta (auction) held in the parking lot of Marina de La Paz, which will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This auction first took place in 1987, when the proceeds were used to purchase Christmas presents for less fortunate children of La Paz.
At the present time, Fundacion Ayuda Niños La Paz, A.C., has taken over the helm of this event, with the help of Club Cruceros. The funds this year will be used for our three programs, which you may read about at www.lapazninos.org.
You may bring any items, new or used but still in good condition, to the offices of Marina de La Paz. The day of the event we need helpers for the various booths such as the bake sale, bazaar, silent auction and the main auction, or to exchange money for scrip. Or if you´d like to have a booth and donate a minimum of 30% to the children of La Paz, you may do so.
This year Jean Wise is in charge of the event, working with Maleni Sorhouet of FANLAP. Stay tuned for Jean´s announcement of our next Subasta meeting to take place in October. For more information, or if you would like to put your name down as a volunteer, send an email to Judy Peterson at firstname.lastname@example.org or to Veronica or Maleni at email@example.com. Let´s make this year´s event another success. See our web page at www.fanlapsubasta.com.
