 “DAY OF THE DEAD” Fundraiser

Supporting the Buena Fuente School Children
These are 80 children who need our help to make their Christmas special.  They attend the public school in the pueblo of Buena Fuente, one of the poorest villages on the Santa Elena Peninsula. Many of you want to share your love and prosperity with some of the neediest children living near us here in Salinas.  Here is your chance!

Dinner: 6-7:30
(Hamburger, Potato Salad & Day of the Dead Cupcake)
$6 per ticket – ($2 for food and $4 donation)
Silent Auction: 7:30 – 8:30 (Items include original painting by Babs DeArmond, original photo print by Mary Kelly, Smokin’ dinner coupons, Spanish lesson and Translation coupons from Mike and Raquel Candra, and more!*
First Come – First Sold
Tickets available ONLY at Smokin Barbecue starting on Wednesday, 10/16/13
If you can’t come for dinner, please feel free to join the gang at 7:30 for a drink, fellowship, and the Silent Auction which will be open to the public.
This benefit is being organized with the help of the local Coast Guard Station here in Salinas.  Buena Fuente is one of the communities they assist.  We will have names and ages of the 80 children at this event and hope that everyone will also pitch in and “ADOPT” one or more of these needy niƱos to purchase them a Christmas gift (as we did with the orphans in the past).  Money raised this night will purchase a new pair of shoes for each child as well as provide their lunch on Thursday, December 12th. Additional monies will buy school supplies and special candy treats.
*If you would like to make a donation of an item for the Silent Auction, please contact Babs DeArmond A.S.A.P. Thanks!
