from Marieke White, Organizer Extraordinaire:
Sending a huge thank you to everyone who participated in the Akumal Ambulance charity dinner on Saturday night!
We raised MX$67,800 pesos for the ambulance!
Special thanks go out to Jennifer and Bart Smith from the iconic Turtle Bay Café, who donated 100% of the takings from the dinner to the ambulance; Natalie Novak Perez, David Bellile, Ivan Perez plus their friend Greg for fantastic musical entertainment; Nancy Poor, The Akumal Monkey Sanctuary, LocoGringo, Buddha Gardens Spa, Scott Brown Photo, and La Lunita Restaurant for sponsoring the gifts and prizes. Thank you for being great sports to all of the participants of all of the games! What a hoot!!
Thank you to our regular sponsors, Secrets Akumal Hotel, Akumal Bay Hotel, Hotel Akumal Caribe, Playa Caribe Condos, La Iguana Condos, Villa de Valhalla, Sherwood Freeman Anders, Caribbean Fantasy, and Phyllis Johnson.
Thank you, wonderful community of Akumal, for supporting these life-saving emergency services, and funding the operations of the Red Cross Akumal ambulance to ensure that it is in Akumal 24 hours a day! This last year alone, the ambulance has helped over 120 people, including the births of 2 babies!! I am immensely proud to be a part of this village!
— As are we all, Marieke!
Donate to help the Red Cross place a full time ambulance in Akumal to service locals and tourists!
