Lion members join "Dr. Wayo" in fundraiser at Barefoot Iguana

Over the past two weekends various organizations, businesses and clubs held fundraisers for different causes. We are happy to report that all were very successful and the funds raised will be put to good use.

    The first fundraiser was held by the San Pedro Library. Supporters and friends of the San Pedro Library held a "Full Moon at the Casa Solana" party. The afternoon party consisted of pot luck hors doeuvres and a cash bar for a donation of $10 per person. The hostess, Mary Beissner would like to publicly thank everyone who attended and is happy to report that the 2000 Library Fundraising Party was a success. Total profits were $1,355 which will go towards new book shelves for the San Pedro Library.

    The massive benefit drive for the Lions Inter-Community Hospital continued last weekend. This time it was the Barefoot Iguana who sponsored the event. During the ultimate weekend party, a percentage of all drinks went to building the hospital. What made the evening more attractive was the staff who were in costume headed by Chief of Staff - Dr. Wayo. The party went on until 3:00 a.m. featuring good music and great "morphine shots." The total amount that went to charity could not be disclosed at print time due to the absence of management.

    Another great show of heart held at Central Park was the benefit for Shahin Godoy. Ten year-old Shahin recently underwent brain cancer surgery in the United States and needs follow-up treatments in Merida, Mexico. The evening featured an acrobatic performance by family members and friends of Shahin as well as a bicycle stunt show by medical student Larry Nelson. Finger-licking barbecued chicken and pork were on sale. The estimated profit by print time was $1500 but more donations are still being received. 

    All of these fundraiser would not have been possible without the help of many individuals. Their success could not have been achieved if it were not for you, the participants and supporters. Thank you.
