This year, we’re in the beautiful Matilda Garden at Pila Seca 36. Walking through the gates will be one of those classic San Miguel experiences; you’ll say, “Who knew such an incredibly beautiful place was behind such a simple wall?”
You’ll feel the buzz as soon as you enter.
The tented gardens will be laid out with gaming tables, as befits an evening in Monte Carlo. Upon arrival, you’ll be given a package of gaming dollars to get you started. If you need more, there will be banks so you can keep the fun going all night long. All the classic casino games will be run by expert dealers or croupiers: poker, blackjack, roulette and craps; plus this year we’ll also have Bingo, Left-Right-Center and a special Horse Racing game!
In the dining area will be an array of food stations serving delicacies from around the globe: Italy, France, India and Great Britain. Canapés will be served from 7, dinner will be served from 7:30 until 10, and dessert will be served until 11. Multiple stations will make service fast and you can return as often as you like. And, of course, there will be an open bar all evening.
This year’s silent auction will contain more than 40 pieces of art, donated by some of San Miguel’s premier artists. In addition to the art, you will have the opportunity to bid on 10 vacation trips to exotic destinations around the world, jewelry, decorating services, dining packages including a “Versace” dinner, your own private Comida & Dressage show and much, much more.
This event is Patronato Pro Niños’ biggest fundraiser of the year and the money raised will go towards helping more than 11,000 children with free or low-cost medical and dental care. Your generous participation in this event will allow us to continue helping the children of San Miguel. Tickets to this gala are US$125 or peso equivalent. So, dust off your evening attire and come enjoy an elegant night of dining, gambling and bidding. On behalf of the children, we thank you for your support.
