Boleros and Mexican music, rock from the ’60s and ’70s, a silent auction, raffles, and a gala dinner at the Rosewood hotel will crown the night of October 10.

The Fourth Gala Dinner is being organized by the Red Cross Women Volunteers, and it promises to be unforgettable, according to Leticia Fernández, president of the organization. The dinner and the spectacle are being prepared with lots of love for sanmiguelenses who attend and support the nonprofit organization. This year, they expect to have 400 guests. The attendees, commented Fernández, will enjoy Mexican music and boleros sung by soprano Gabriela Perales during the dinner. Later, The Four Gents—a group made up of opera singers and actors—will perform rock music and lyrics of the’60s and ’70s with lyrics that have defied time. The Four Gents have performed in cities like Tucson and New York.

The night of October 10 will also feature a silent auction of paintings and jewelry, plus actors’ and actresses’ outfits. The ticket to the dinner includes a raffle for stays at local hotels, dinners, and tours.

Fernández told Atención that the profits from this gala dinner will go to the construction of the new substation of the Red Cross at Avenida las Américas and Paseo de los Conspiradores. She noted that if the National Red Cross decides to support the construction of houses for those impacted by nature in states of Mexico, the local Red Cross will support this initiative, and part of the gala proceeds could be designated for this cause.

The first stone of the substation was placed on July 31. San Miguel will be the first city in Guanajuato with two Red Cross bases. To make it possible, the local government donated one million pesos in materials and will invest an additional half million to equip the space. Private companies like Ecofrigo donated doors and windows. The Red Cross pays the workers of the construction.

In its first phase of three, the new venue will feature four doctors’ offices, space for parking three ambulances, a pharmacy, and a communications space. The second stage will include 12 doctors’ offices. It is targeted to be a specialized medical center that will later have a public parking lot and washrooms.

Perales told Atención that this time she will sing all-time favorites boleros and Mexican music. She said that the audience will hear songs like “Contigo en la distancia,” “Júrame,” “Estrellita,” “Piel canela,” and “Solamente una vez.”

Soprano Perales studied music at the Superior School of Music of the Autonomous University of Coahuila. Her performances are a tradition now in San Miguel. She has performed at private events for the last 10 years.
