over 1500 attended the Rythm and Ribs Fund Raiser

We did it again!  In spite of many handicaps and mix ups, Rhythm 'n
Ribs brought in approximately $117,000 pesos.  This is the most ever.

Manos de Amor would like to thank everyone who made this possible-the food providers; the many volunteers who sold tickets, served food, poured drinks, cleaned up trash; the musicians; Miguel Angel
Restaurant for providing space for our bars; the businesses who gave
raffle prizes; the artists who contributed to the art auction; and, to all of you who attended the event and spent your money. 

On February 16, 2008, the fourth Rhythm 'n Ribs was held in the plaza in Bucerias. It was estimated that 1500 people attended this event. One of the many wonderful things about these events in the plaza is that they are attended by the local Mexican people as well as the ex-pat residents and visitors to the area.



local women serving tamales

The event this year grossed over $100,000 pesos. The assistance from the community was wonderful. Members of the government of the Municipality of Bahia de Banderas donated money to help local women to provide tamales. We had several hundred kilos of ribs, barbecued chicken wings, chili, posole, corn dogs, pastries, etc., all donated by the community of the Bahia.


Raffle tickets



More than 40 raffle prizes were donated by restaurants and businesses of the area. Many original works of art were donated and sold via a silent auction.



Hawaii entertainment in Bucerias Mexico

Entertainment consisted of a Hawaiian dance troupe from Puerto Vallarta, Ballet Folklorico from the Valle, the Municipal Band of the Bahia de Banderas. Our master of ceremonies was Denise Fiske-Chow, ably assisted by the Margarita, one of the primary care givers at the shelter.



The many volunteers from the area, including visitors, manned the ticket booths, bars and food booths. This is a wonderful example of the community pulling together to help this worthy cause of building an orphanage/shelter for the needy children.  Continued help in the form of donations is still needed to complete our project and to fund the many other needs of the children. You can help, your financial support goes directly to the organization, 
please donate!
