Poker Tournament/Auction/Art Show Summary
The 4th Charity Poker Tournament/Silent Auction was a rousing success.  This year we added an Amateur Art Show, which was also very popular.

There were 33 poker players, 22 auction items and 21 art items displayed by 8 different artists.  You can see photos from the evening by clicking this link.

Over $33,000 pesos were raised to support our free sterilization clinics held by PATA Manzanillo, and represents one-half the cost of holding the March 5-day clinic each.
A big thank-you goes to the OASIS OCEAN CLUB for hostingOasis Ocean Club.  They have provided enormous support and provide a beautiful setting for this event.

June Evans - Art Show
Chantel Oleksin - Poker Tournament Director
Chris Newbold - Setup
Eddie Talasy - Poker Dealer
Lora Bloss - Poker Dealer
Mary Lessig - Poker Dealer

March Clinic

Mark your calendars.  Our annual 5-Day Sterilization Clinic is scheduled for 22 - 26 March in Casa Ejidal Salagua.  More detailed information will come out in the next week, but we will be looking for volunteers to help with the event.  You can help in recovery, help wash laundry, provide drinks and meals for the volunteers, and more.  If you are interested in volunteering, please send an email to us by clicking this link.
