Auction Day

The big auction was yesterday and I am sure that at least $5000 was raised for the local schools in Palo Verde-the little village nearby. Schools in Mexico are terribly funded. The teachers get 90% of the budget and only 10% goes for supplies and buildings etc. So, the local residents of Punta Chivato have an annual Golf Tournament plus auction as one of the fund raisers for the schools. My quilted runners and aprons raised $150....yeah! Pam and Harry's Gourmet Dinner raised $700 wowee....
Here's a few pics..

I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
