Learning Center Jewelry fundraiser @ upcoming Mermaids Market

To help the Learning Center at the Community Center “La Esperanza Para Nueva Vida” in Col. San Rafael get to the end of their fundraising efforts, on Feb. 20th they will set up a “jewelry grab bag” event at the Masked Mermaid Market.

This event is made possible due to private donors and the various jewelry clubs in town. All proceeds will go to complete the different tasks required to open the doors on this project. A few of the grab bags are salted with strings of real pearls, valued at more than $100.00 each. The grab bags  will be $10.00 each.

If you buy 2 you will get the 3rd one free! We do not know what’s in the various grab bags. Many of these  gift boxes were made by Artist Linda Smith of Tucson, AZ. Since no one knows what is in each bag or gift box ,it will be a surprise for all involved!

“Thank you all so much for your support . It’s all about our kids here in Rocky point. The way out of poverty is with a good education. All proceeds stay here in our town spent on our kids.” – Barb O

The Community Center “La Esperanza Para Nueva Vida” on Avenida Lazaro Cardenas, in the Eastern part of Rocky Point that few tourists ever see, came into existence 18 years ago as a result of hard work, dedication, and love, by a few people who wanted to make the lives of those in need a little better. The center has slowly grown, mostly through donations, over the years and it continues to improve and transform in order to accommodate the needs of the people to whom it serves.
Now that covid has changed the way kids are learning, the center has stepped up to set up a computer center for kids from homes who don’t have a computer – or internet – or even electricity. They have had bake sales, yard sales, donations drives, and more to garner funds for an addition to the center in order to add the extra space needed.
