March 31 Fundraising Gala at El Mirador Oceanview Restaurant

We invite you to join us for a wonderful evening featuring celebrities from near and far:

Chef Alejandro Villagomez, named by Food and Wine Magazine as one of the best new chefs in Mexico, will prepare a fabulous meal with produce donated by our local, sustainable farmers of land and sea including oysters from Sol Azul, totoaba from Earth Ocean Farms and Pesca Con Futuro, produce from Sueño Tropical and Baja Sage, and coffee from Baja Beans. He is hosted by Chef Ernesto Torres of Grupo Guaycura, and will be collaborating with AFEET chefs Nelly Velasco and Mely Mendoza.

Celebrated Soprano Marcela Chacon of the Compañía Nacional de Ópera en México will perform, accompanied by the main pianist of the Chamber Choir of the National Center for the Arts, Sergio Vazquez.

Included tonight: Dinner, concert, tequila tasting and cocktails courtesy of Casa Cuervo (5:30-7:00 PM). Cash bar available afterwards.

This fundraiser will support the five programs of Alianza Cero Basura’s two-year strategic plan: community engagement, school engagement, waste separation, waste reduction and organic waste management. This is your chance to hear all about it!

This evening is brought to you by El Mirador Oceanview Restaurant and the Association of Female Tourism Executives-AFEET. Founded in 1970 to bring together leading female executives in the tourism industry in Mexico, two of the key missions of the BCS chapter of AFEET are to: 1) strengthen social programs that improve the state of BCS through tangible, quantifiable actions; and 2) take action to raise awareness about the importance of sustainability to the environment.

We have amassed an INCREDIBLE list of donated treasures for our fundraising silent auction! A million thanks to all these amazing people and companies for their generous donations!
