    The Cause:
    This year the International Women's Club of Cancun is supporting the Hogar de los Ancianos, which is the home for the elderly at La Ciudad de la Alegria here in Cancun.

    This is the ONLY residential home for the elderly north of Chetumal. It is in dire need of funding. At the moment their industrial washing machines are broken and the nuns are washing all the laundry of all the residents by hand.

    A number of the residents of this home are completely indigent and pay nothing to live there; in fact several of them were found wandering homeless in the streets of Cancun.

    The home is small but has plans to expand as soon as money allows. There is FAR greater demand for residential elderly services here than the home can meet with it's current capacity. This is an incredibly important cause and we hope everyone will support the IWC in our efforts to support el Hogar de los Ancianos.

    Cancun is buzzing with the news of this years International Women's Club Annual Fashion Show and Hat Contest, May 19th at 9:30 am at Kukulkan Plaza. All of the money we raise will go to the Elderly at Ciudad de la Alegria. Due to Hurricane Wilma, we were unable to make our 2006 presentation, but this year, we have come back even stronger to present this spectacular event. Emilio Mata, a local designer, will be presenting his Fashions for Spring and Summer. It promises not only to be a GREAT FASHION SHOW, but our HAT CONTEST, which is not only a TRADITION, but shows off the creativity of many of our Cancun ladies, is BACK after a short sabbatical! We have over 75 prizes (including dinners in well known Hotel Zone and Centro Restaurants) Hotel stays, jewelry, cigars, etc) to be given away for our raffle ($100 pesos for 11 tickets) and our Door Prize will be an Original Design of Emilio Mata's made especially for you! The Breakfast is being catered by Mont Blanc Caterers and we are being supported by Chocolate City and SeƱor Frogs, as well as many of the businesses in Kukulkan Plaza and other well known Cancun locations. Valet Parking will be available at Kukulkan Plaza for the event for $10 pesos or you can park your own car in the garage for $10 pesos. There promises to be other surprises as well for all that participate! For ticket information, contact me or RiverGirl....Hope to see you there!
