Patronato Pro Niños’s Fourth of July Party to Auction Off a Wealth of Unique Experiences

Sofia Duarte2

By Daniela Briones

If you’ve never attended Patronato Pro Niños’s Fourth of July party, this is the year to go. The event’s annual auction will outdo itself this year, offering up a picnic, tours, and even a chance to be a race car driver for a day.

One auction lot is a day at Cañada de la Virgen, a certified organic, grass-feeding cattle ranch, where you will enjoy a picnic for six at a beautiful site overlooking the Cañada de la Virgen pyramid. After lunch, a trail guide will arrive with six horses and take you on a horseback tour of the area for one to three hours, depending on your comfort level and preference.

Or slip behind the wheel of your dream car and experience the thrill of driving on a real Las Vegas racetrack. On this experience designed for two, you can drive a Lamborghini Huracan, a Porsche 911 GT3, a Nissan GTR Nismo, or an Audi R8 V-10—the choice is yours.

Fly free to Las Vegas with a three-night stay at the Renaissance Las Vegas Hotel, and drive the way it was meant to be done, free from the confines of speed limits and traffic. Experience an impressive 1.5-mile Formula One-inspired racetrack, comparable to top circuits in the world. It has twelve 15-degree banked turns, 60 feet of total elevation change, and a half-mile straightaway.

First female auctioneer

Sofia Duarte, this year’s PPN Auctioneer, will be this event’s first female auctioneer. She comes from the prestigious auction house of Morton’s in México City and Houston. Duarte has multiple degrees in art history and pictorial art valuation from a variety of impressive institutions. Since 2013, she has been part of the team at Morton Auctions as a valuation specialist for its Latin American art auctions.
