Casita Linda: the spirit of hope
By Louise Gilliam
Casita Linda is pleased to present the second annual Spirit of Hope Dinner Dance on October 12. Chairman Louise Gilliam announced that this year’s honorary chairman is Mayor Mauricio Trejo Pureco. This event, which sold out last year, will be held at Las Ventanas and begins at 6pm. Champagne and hors d’oeuvres will be served in the beautiful grassy area of Las Ventanas while we watch the magnificent San Miguel sunset. Guests will then go inside to be served an elegant three-course dinner with wine and an open bar and will dance on an illuminated dance floor to the music of Manix.

Casita Linda has obtained extraordinary luxury vacation packages that will be auctioned off at the dinner. Other amazing travel packages can now be viewed and bid upon online at www.casitalinda.org. You will enjoy an evening of glamour and glitz and have the opportunity to purchase a luxury vacation at a discount, but, most importantly, you will be helping us raise money to continue building homes for those families who are living in desperate circumstances, right here in our community. Mark the date on your calendars and enjoy this special evening.
Casita Linda has built 68 homes for those living in extreme poverty, and we have been able to do that because of the support of members of our community and friends from abroad. Of the monies raised, 96 percent goes toward the building of homes. Casita Linda is constantly striving to build better homes at a lower cost, so we can provide shelter to more and more families. This year, we have sponsored an architectural contest open to all architectural students in Mexico that will be judged by three of the most famous architects in Mexico: Victor Legorreta – Legorreta & Legorreta; Mauricio Rocha – Taller de Arquitectura; and Louis Sánchez Renero – Sánchez Arquitectos. These gentlemen will be honored, along with the top three contest winners, at the Spirit of Hope Dinner Dance.
Tickets are US$135 per person and available by emailing email@example.com. Space is limited to 200 guests and tickets sell out quickly. You may buy a table of 10 and entertain your business associates or special friends. Make sure you go to our website at: www.casitalinda.org to bid on the extraordinary luxury vacation packages. All contributions are tax deductible. Please join us – we want you to enjoy this fabulous evening and help reach our goal of building homes for 24 families in 2014.
