Akumal Adults Spring Breakers Do it Again!!

A HUGE shout out to the Loco Gringo AASB group, and especially George Connell and Ed & Sandy Knight, for once again bringing together a great group of people to help raise much needed funds for HB!!

All told, they raised over $2000 US to support vital library programs....even after having to switch things up due to a rain storm that flooded the auction tables with silent bid sheets on them. They brought the auction inside under the palapa at Lol-Ha and do a live auction. People were buying soaking wet t-shirts ("pre-washed") for $30! 

And earlier in the day, these wonderful folks helped lead Los Piratas Treasure for the kiddos at the library. Both the auction and the pirate hunt have become annual events. Gosh, you guys are spoiling us, and we're loving every minute of it!!
