Casita Linda Presents “Mysteries of the Orient”
By Ann Marie Jackson
Join us for an incredible evening at Casita Linda’s 8th annual Spirit of Hope Gala, Mysteries of the Orient, on Wednesday, October 16th, at the stunningly beautiful Hacienda Los Arcangeles. This elegant Asian-themed evening will begin with cocktails and hors-d’oeuvres, followed by seated dinner, dancing, entertainment, and many fun surprises. Included are full open bars all night plus the extremely popular Solorzano tequila bar.
As has become the custom at Casita Linda galas, we will auction off spectacular luxury vacations and other incredible items. This year’s destinations include Japan and Thailand and gorgeous 5-star hotels on Mexican and Caribbean beaches, a home in upstate New York that is perfect for a family reunion and dinners at some of San Miguel’s most prominent restaurants.
In addition, a silent auction will showcase fourteen of San Miguel’s most prominent artists who have taken up the challenge of creating art indicative of the Orient. Those artists are: Ana Theil, Pascual, William Fares, Pamela Fares, Gene Johnson, Terra Mizwa, Zoë Siegel, Oscar Martinez Heredia, Kate Van Doren, Heidi Levasseur, Mark Rewerts, Nancy Voris and Wendy Moyer. We are so fortunate to have all of this talent donated to our cause. To truly enjoy the spirit of the event, you may come dressed in elegant Asian-inspired fashion or take this opportunity to show off your cocktail wear.
Casita Linda helps families in the greater San Miguel area who have an income of less than $275 USD per month build their own homes. By providing a dignified and safe environment,—a Casita Linda or pretty little home— we empower families and change lives.
We support our communities by offering workshops on education, family planning, family communication skills, water conservation and other important topics. Families are turning their lives around, building from the foundation of a safe, secure home. With your help, we can provide a brighter future to many more families.
By being a part of this wonderful celebration, you will help provide homes and hope for San Miguel’s poorest families. Tickets are available for USD$135 or 2,600 pesos from all Casita Linda board members, at Solutions on Recreo, or online at casitalinda.org through PayPal. Tickets are tax deductible.
