On Saturday, November 29th, 150 people gathered at a private home in Colonia García Ginerés, for a gala dinner dance THE OASIS RED RIBBON CHARITY BALL, to raise money for Oasis San Juan de Dios A.C., a home/shelter for people without resources or Seguro Social affected by HIV/AIDS.
All of the proceeds from the event are donated to the charity. Director of Oasis Carlos Méndez, as well as his colleagues José Martín Cauich and María Teresa Chim were present at the ball, and were very grateful for the generosity of the people of Mérida. The organizing sponsors were delighted with the outcome of the event, which raised more money than they expected, largely because of the incredible success of the auction portion of the evening.
The previous two fundraising events to benefit Oasis organized by the same sponsors in 2012 and 2013 raised $97,214 and $213,176 respectively.
Not even the chilly temperatures could dampen the overflowing enthusiasm of the people who attended the sold-out event, which was organized and sponsored by Hennessy’s Irish Pub, Mexico International Real Estate, and Yucatan Today, along with 27 other contributing sponsors and private donors. Music was provided by Copypaste. The 4-nationality buffet was prepared by Sean Hennessy and his team of chefs, and the desserts were donated by guests and friends. Many people volunteered their time to ensure an event which was successful in every way.
Oasis is a home/shelter which was founded in 1993 in the absence of public health policy on the disease, lack of care facilities and education, and complete absence of legislation to protect those who are vulnerable. Their services are completely free, and they offer medical care, rehabilitation, defense of human rights, education, prevention, training, political lobbying, support, and funeral services.
Saludos desde Mérida,
