The Oasis Red Ribbon Ball

Mark your calendar for what is sure to be one of the most memorable fundraisers of the year. Hennessy’s Irish Pub, Mexico International Real Estate, and Yucatan Today are the organizing sponsors of an event to raise funds for Oasis San Juan de Dios AC in Conkal, Yucatán, a shelter for people affected by HIV/AIDS who have no resources and no family to care for them. The event will be held at the architecturally stunning private home in Merida Centro, “La Cúpula”, on Saturday Dec. 14 in honor of World AIDS Day. The OASIS RED RIBBON BALL follows the very successful, fun event GALLOPING FOR OASIS, A POLO AFFAIR held in December 2012, also a fundraiser for Oasis.

The gala evening will get underway with a champagne & classical music welcome (provided by Quo Vadis String Trio) inside the lovely Cúpula, starting at 7 pm, followed by seating on the terrace for the ambrosial holiday meal. A full service cash bar will serve libations, and bottles of wine will be available for purchase.

Music and dancing (live music by CopyPaste) will follow the scrumptious, special dessert.  A raffle and live auction will add to the merry-making.

Attendance will be limited to 20 tables that seat 10 persons each. Tables are available for $5000 pesos; entry includes a welcome glass of champagne, delicious 3-course dinner, and live music before and after dinner.  All proceeds will be donated to Oasis San Juan de Dios. Contact Yucatan Today (tel. 927 8531) or Hennessy’s Irish Pub (Paseo de Montejo x 41 y 43) to reserve your table.
