Country Event Center Grand Opening Benefit
By Charlotte Bell
Finding a beautiful country location for special events is about to get easier. Fourteen miles outside of San Miguel, located on a hill overlooking Presa Allende with San Miguel and the mountains in the distance, is the newest event center. Las Rancheritas, a Mujeres en Cambio project, are pleased to announce the grand opening of their newly expanded facility. It features a fully enclosed building with flush toilets. Outside is a covered terrace as well as a covered outdoor kitchen. In addition to being the only women in Mexico who create fine hooked rugs (http://rughookproject.com), they are also fabulous cooks. They can serve from 10 to100 people. So if you need authentic Mexican catered food, they can provide that as well. Each year they host the annual Mujeres en Cambio luncheon, attended by more than 100 people.
