By Ann Mauzé
Mediterranean Magic is coming your way on Friday, July 18, at 6pm, in the beautiful new Hacienda de San Miguel de Allende adjacent to the Convention Center. And what a glorious night it will be!
Fundraiser for Patronato Pro Niños
Fri, Jul 18, 6pm
Hacienda de San Miguel de Allende
Starting with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, there will be a silent auction, a Mediterranean buffet featuring the cuisines of Spain, Italy and Greece, a live auction and dancing to music by Los Peques. In the spirit of the gala’s theme, evening attire is requested.
Returning after several years absence will be Auctioneer Scott Swenson, noted for his lively, sometimes breathtaking, always entertaining presentations of fabulous live auction items. This year’s selections range from two Tamayo etchings to exotic vacation destinations and fine jewelry.
Silent auction items include gift baskets from local vendors, catering services for a cocktail party in your home, decorative housewares, designer accessories and fine art and sculpture by some of San Miguel’s most outstanding artists.
Seating is limited and tickets at US$125 or 1,500 pesos are already for sale. To obtain yours, which entitles you to food and beverages throughout the event, as well as reserved seating, call Lily at Patronato Pro Niños’ Development Office. The number is 152-7796, Monday to Friday, 9am–4pm. Major credit cards accepted along with bank checks and cash.
All proceeds will benefit Patronato Pro Niños, the children’s healthcare agency that provides medical and dental care to San Miguel’s neediest children.
