Academia Internacional Hosts Art and Travel Auction
By Robin Loving Rowland
Enter 300-year-old Bishop Sollano’s home at Sollano 35 while the valet is parking your car and be amazed at art by Pablo Picasso, Toller Cranston, Marion Perlet, Erika Harrsch, Robert Wyland, Fanny Rabel, Leonard Brooks, and others. Then, be the highest bidder for that, plus a variety of luxury travel packages. Imagine first class airfare and stays at a Rosewood deluxe suite in London and a beautiful London home in the trendy Queen’s Park neighborhood. Be tantalized by first class airfare and a luxury suite at the Venetian Resort in Las Vegas, including dinner for two, a show, and a private gondola ride.

The event, Thursday, July 16, from 6-10 pm, will benefit the Academia Internacional, which promotes excellence in education that produces a student community of social/economic inclusiveness, multi-cultural and bilingual integration, and leadership initiative.
“My son goes to this wonderful school, and I am pleased that this school is not just for the rich and affluent,” said Gary Weinstein. “He has friends that are children of maids, gardeners and office workers. Many are single parents working hard and in need of subsidies. I am proud that the school gives scholarships and that my son is getting a multi-cultural and bilingual education in an accepting student body with wonderful teachers! Even though we will be out of town, I will be buying two tickets,” he concluded.
For a contribution of only 250 pesos, you can participate in this benefit for the Academia Internacional and possibly win the raffle, even if you don’t attend. Wine and appetizers will be served, and there will be a cash bar. Tickets are available at the Academia, Stirling Dickenson 2, and at Las Conexión, Aldama 3.
