CHARITY BINGO has returned in support of Pasitos de Luz – Week 6

What a night for Charity Bingo for Pasitos de Luz at Nacho Daddy!  Over $48,000 pesos raised!!  Amazing!!  Thank you all for giving in the holiday spirit.  These funds will go a long way to making this a holiday season that the kids at Pasitos de Luz will never forget.

The evening got off to a rousing start with PVRPV´s, Juan Carlos and his Vanna, Nina Goodhope of La Bodega de Nina and Cork & Bottle at Los Mercados calling out the numbers for 3 winners, one of which was the Head Food Dude at Nacho Daddy, Greg Garner.  Web Designer, Carol Clarke was another winner of the evening.  Carol has been a long time resident of PV and you might remember her C+C fishing charter from years past.  Way to go Carol!  Health Care Resources own Pamela Thompson was also a lucky winner.  Congrats Pam!

We were lucky enough to have other donors in the crowd supporting this wonderful charity such as Encore Boutique´s Mikki Prost, a bingo regular, didn´t win a game this time but did get up to let all the bingo players know a bit more about her wonderful consignment boutique located on Lazaro Cardenas. Hank and Conrad, formerly of Chilis and now doing Lunch with Hank and Conrad at Cafe Bohemia on Rodolfo Gomez in front of Dee´s Coffee, Theresa and her husband Emmanuel from Triple A Services were there too!  Each of the generous donors was requested to stand up and speak to the crowd, letting them know a little more about their services. If you do want any further information regarding any of donors please feel free to let us know and we´ll forward you the contact information.  A special shout out goes to Garbo owner Javier who stopped by and played a few games of bingo before having to rush off to a posada.  Thanks for stopping by, Javier!!!

We were also graced with Enrique Flores´ presence from Expressions Graphic Designs, who generously donated specially crafted Charity Bingo 2010 – 2011 t-shirts, one of which was raffled off during the evening and was won by Joanne Bryla, others to be raffled off at future bingo nights. Other raffle prizes were donated by Cassandra Shaw, who donated a pair of earrings, won by Denise Pietri and Charity Bingo volunteer, Robin Spencer generously donated another pair of Cassandra Shaw earrings, won by Cindy DuChateau Ramirez, who was sitting at “the” lucky table of the night with several other bingo players winning games throughout the night.

The 50/50 draw was won by Bert Ramirez, who generously re-donated the $1,775 pesos he won back to Pasitos de Luz. Pasitos de Luz´ Yolanda came out with a group of her friends and volunteers to play some bingo.  One of which was Pat Foreman from Canada who is the principle of a special needs school in Toronto. We thank you for all your support, Pat and we hope to see more of you. Yolanda also spoke of her dream and how thankful she is for the efforts of all the volunteers and supporters, like each of you. If you would like more information on her story and that of Pasitos de Luz we invite you to go to her webpage to learn more. www.pasitosdeluz.org.

To top off the evening, our very own Tim Longpre, who along with Patty McLane from Crate Interiors, generously donated $25,000 pesos to Pasitos de Luz which brought our total raised to date of $105,000 pesos.  What a fantastic night!
