Casita Linda Spirit of Hope: La Dolce Vita

By Louise Gilliam

On October 14, Casita Linda held its sixth annual Spirit of Hope gala, raising enough funds to build many homes for those less fortunate here in San Miguel.

The elegant and fun evening featured opera singers, human marble statues, and dancers doing the Tarantella, along with fabulous food, an open bar, and an endless flow of Solorzano tequila. The guests danced until the wee hours, and a fun time was had by all.

Casita Linda announced many new exacting changes at the gala.

We have begun building with a new material called ARMO, which uses bricks similar to Legos. The home can be completed in four weeks, and the family members and our wonderful volunteers can do the majority of the work. The home is much more ecologically sustainable and comfortable for our families.

We have recently changed our logo and our website, casitalinda.org, to reflect the changes we have made over the past two years. We not only build homes, we build communities. We have two new Mexican board members who are reaching out to the Mexican community and getting our host country involved in our work.

Casita Linda and Caminos del Agua have joined forces to work with the community of Palo Colorado to build six large-scale rainwater harvestings systems in the new homes built by Casita Linda, as well as in the community’s elementary school.

On November 15, we will celebrate the completion of our 100th home, and we invite the San Miguel Community to join us at 2pm to meet the family and to see our new building process. Carnitas will be served, and you will honor the Ramirez family and us with your presence.
