Many Thanks To Supporters Of Hogar Del Nino Fundraiser - The fundraising dinner held at Rancho Pescadero on December 18, was the largest Hogar fundraiser to date and was a success due the participation of the guests, the Rancho Pescadero management, chef and staff, the donors of silent auction items and many other supporters. Very special thanks to Rancho Pescadero and Peter Buck and Chloe Johnson for sponsoring the event.

Big thanks to the following auction item donors: Rancho Pescadero, Todos Santos Eco Adventures, Villa Santa Cruz, Flora del Mar, Hotel California, Hotel Guaycura, Casa Tota, Michael’s, Café Santa Fe, La Casita, Café Todos Santos, Gallo Azul, Chez Laura, Landi’s, Los Adobes, La Esquina, Cafelix/Boyitacos, Fonda el Zaguan, El Mirador, Hierbabuena Restaurant, La Gitana, White Sands Salon and Spa, M&M Salon and Spa, Lucky Nails, Dee Dee, Marimar Higgins Moreno, Jan Turner, and El Faro Beach Club. The event could not have been such a success without the support of the following: tickets sales – Tecolote Bookstore; transportation – Todos Santos Eco Adventures and TS Private Transportation; entertainment – Tracy Durland and Divier Guive; photography – Paul Van Vleck; auction support: Susan Doyle, Connie and Andy Mical.

As they say, it takes a village, and the village really came together to help the children being cared for at Hogar del Nino. The event results will provide funding for about five months of food for the Hogar. Many, many thanks to all from Nancy and Nancy. ☞ Nancy Naigle, nnaigle [- at -] att.net, 612-178-0040
