The 3rd annual Valentine Art Auction and Fundraiser on February 11th at the El Telpatio Hotel & Resort in Tlaguepague was a great success. Several of us had made use of a special overnight stay package and made the most of it, relaxing and staying the night and enjoying a delicious full breakfast the next morning. The event was organised by President Carole Wolff and member Dr. Santiago Hernandez.
The party started off with drinks by the pool, music, and fortune teller Tonya Melendez, followed by Valentine balloon sales and reverse draw sales during dinner.
The auction was a lot of fun. Dr. Santiago Hernandez and his assistants Janie Munoz and Ron Howardson did a terrific job of presenting the items like real pros. All of the art objects were sold, and all of the certificates donated by restaurants and other businesses were sold or won.
Many thanks to all who helped make this fundraiser a great success. The proceeds raised will be used to fund many of our Club's community projects.
