A Night Under the Stars – Recap

Thank you to everyone who helped us again this year to make La Catalina Educational Foundation’s 5th annual “A Night under the Stars – Auction Benefit” a huge success.

This year’s event was filled with lots of excitement, generous participants and delicious food.

The evening got going once people had a chance to eat some authentic Mexican food and find seats for the dance and music performances.

The crowd got a taste of Folkloric dancing preformed by the Cultural Dancers of Aguas Calientes followed by dance performances by our very own La Manzanilla children’s dance class.
The night also included some live music. The crowd was treated to the beautiful voice of Lora Loka along with a number sung by the La Manzanilla children’s English class.

During the event, the Live and Silent Auction raised a total of $11,730.00 MXN pesos while entrance tickets accounted for $6,200.00 MXN pesos.

The final total of this year’s event after expenses was a profit of $13,856 MXN pesos which will be put together with the profit from the Online Auction and distributed between the La Manzanilla public schools, LCEF’s free community educational programs and the construction of the bathrooms at the Costa Alegre Educational Center.
