A Bed for Rosario

By Patty Talasy from the May 2012 Edition

Black Jack Night Fund Raiser

Do you like to play Black Jack? Or, would you like to learn to play Black Jack?

Casa MESE (Menores En Situation Extraordinaria) is sponsoring a fun-filled night on Wednesday, May 23 from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM at the Hotel Playa de Santiago. The ticket donation is $200. Pesos.

There will be English and Spanish speaking dealers. If you have always wanted to play Black Jack, but didn’t want to lose money learning, this is the place to learn. We will have beginner’s tables.

If you are hungry or thirsty, we will sell pizza and drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic).

Before and during Black Jack play, raffle tickets will be sold. After Black Jack play, these raffle tickets will be drawn for such prizes as a Scuba Max Navigator 2 dive mask, lunches and dinners at Manzanillo restaurants, hair cuts, manicures, pedicures, art work, and much, much more.

The funds raised will benefit Rosario, a young woman (19 years old) who was hit by a car while walking last year. She is paralyzed from her armpits down, lives with her parents and siblings in a shack made of wood pallets. Rosario desperately needs an electric hospital bed with a rotating mattress to alleviate and help prevent bedsores. If there are funds remaining after the purchase of the bed/mattress, they will be dedicated toward Rosario’s rehabilitation.

Please come join us for a night of fun, knowing that your donation will be giving Rosario a chance for a better life. For tickets to Black Jack Night, please call Patty at 333-8085 or Ginny at 335-1955.
