On February 15th, Kerry and Mandy Shapansky organized a fundraising event at La Pescadora restaurant to support the Campus de Mita project of PEACE Punta de Mita. The event was a great success, with the presence of 30 people including residents of Punta Mita and from outside the gates.
The night was full of surprises that made all attendees feel inspired to help. Everything was incredible from the DJ music to the tequila tasting, a delicious dinner and many more details that made this an unforgettable and unique evening. The most remarkable thing was the great support received from the organizers, the donors who contributed items for the silent auction such as Mariette Woestemeyer and Jean Van de Velde, as well as each of the event attendees. Without them, this fundraising event would not have been possible.
The event managed to raise significant funds through ticket sales, auction, and donations, but the aid didn't stop there. Kerry and Mandy Shapansky doubled the amount raised with a generous personal donation. Undoubtedly, this fundraising will be a great boost to the Mita Campus project, which aims to promote the social, economic, and educational development of the local community.
Everyone at PEACE Punta de Mita wants to express our deepest gratitude to Kerry and Mandy, the donors, and each of the event attendees for their unconditional support and inspiration to continue with our projects. This event is a demonstration of the great impact we can achieve when we work together for a common cause. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
