“Last year we raised over $77,000 pesos for the cause with well over 300 people attending. This year due to Covid and the relevant protocols we will not be able to repeat that accomplishment. All relevant Covid protocols will be adhered to so there will be no buffet line, all workers will wear masks, and tables will be set for 6 people with spacing between each table. The surrounding restaurants are helping us with some space so we have room for 200 people. However, with covid still effecting the world and causing less people to travel to Mazatlan this year, we do not expect to sell that many tickets. We will be keeping an eye on total active cases in Mazatlan and make any necessary adjustments if cases spike up.The types of donations that have done well for us the past are various art pieces, golf equipment, fishing equipment and games. We also need items for the raffles. Thank you for your support.”
