Fiesta 100 Paellas

By Robin Loving Rowland

Hotel Real de Minas doesn’t seem to know where to stop in serving the San Miguel community.  The largest hotel in the region, it is renovating its gardens to accommodate more community gatherings, and when it plans these gatherings, it benefits local charities.

Party: 100 Paellas: Paella Contest, Silent Auction, Concert To benefit Casa Hogar Santa Julia. Sat, May 5, 1-8pm. Hotel Real de Minas. Children under 3 – Free. Children under 12 – 50 pesos. Advance Tickets – 130 pesos. Tickets at the Event -180 pesos. 152-3709

That makes it a real treat to go out on a summer’s day, for there is abundant beauty and life to be encountered, and all for a good cause. 

Such will be the case on Cinco de Mayo when Hotel Real de Minas hosts its inaugural Fiesta 100 Paellas to benefit the girls of Santa Julia girls’ home.

Featured will be as many as 100 different paellas, the chefs of which will compete for popular approval and prizes.  Chef Madre Rayo of Santa Julia is hoping to find herself in the winner’s circle, with your help!

There will be childrens’ fun, a silent auction, and unlimited amounts of paella to eat – or cook.

If you want to compete against Madre Rayo and the scores of others, contact Hotel Real de Minas at 152-2626, Ext. 553, 536, or 525; 01/800/466-5800; or
