The Red Cross in San Miguel de Allende never rests; it serves Sanmiguelenses 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Red Cross President Leticia Fernández de Noyola announced a fundraising effort that is running from April through June 2021. Soriana supermarket of San Miguel is giving customers the opportunity to round up their purchase amounts, with the additional change going to the local Red Cross. Fernández encourages the public to shop at this particular store, and added that you can donate more than just the cents’ worth of the rounded-up amount. “If you have a lot, share a lot; if you have little, give little; but always give, she said.”
In addition to this fundraising effort, Fernández announced another event organized by the fundraising team as part of its annual drive. A photography exhibit and auction of the works of architect Juan José Díaz Infante (1936-2012) will take place on Saturday, May 1 at Viñedo San Francisco. Tickets for the event are 250 pesos, and a maximum of 120 participants can attend. Starting at noon, guests will be treated to an equestrian show and a complimentary glass of wine. Snacks, food, and drinks will be available for purchase. According to Fernández, the Red Cross will receive a percentage of the sales.
“The selection of photographs is wonderful. Formats range from small to large. Bids will start at 1,000 pesos, and go up to what credit cards and checkbooks allow. These are unique and wonderful photographs,” Fernández added.
Guests are asked to wear white to the event, and are reminded that all health protocols will be followed. For tickets or additional information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 415 152 41241.
