May 13th Dinner & Ball for scholarships to benefit young women

The Puerto Peñasco Business and Professional Women’s Organization will be hosting a grand dinner and ball on May 13th, in honoring this year’s Woman of the Year while raising scholarship funds to benefit young women.

In addition to the traditional candle lighting ceremony, Business and Professional Women’s Organization President Haydee Vega explains this year the event will include a dinner and ball, all with the goal of raising scholarship funds for 24 young women currently studying at high school and university. Some of the scholarship recipients are currently studying outside of Puerto Peñasco.

This year the organization has named Myriam Hernández as Woman of the Year, given her background as a proactive businesswoman within the community.  The evening’s events will begin at 8 p.m., with the traditional lighting of candles and dinner, leading to a fun night of dancing.

Fundraising goals are set at 10,000 pesos per table (for a table of ten) for the dinner.  By sponsoring or joining a table, attendees will help in providing a scholarship to one of the young women currently studying in Puerto Peñasco, as well as in the cities of Hermosillo, Tepic Nayarit, Ensenada, and Mexicali.  In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to get to know the scholarship recipients through photos placed on each table.

This is the most important annual event of the local Business and Professional Women’s Association, which assists in helping families by providing scholarships to young women from Puerto Peñasco and particularly for those looking to continue their studies beyond the city.

The dinner and ball, which will take place at the Las Palomas Convention Center, will include music by the versatile group Tierra Firme from Mexicali, Baja California.
