Fund Raiser for Nicholas

HELP!!!!!

Many of the snowbirds lining in Mazatlan know Santiago, who performs with Santana at Heather's Place, the Purple Onion and a few other restaurants around town. His son, Nicholas, has contracted muscular dystrophy, he is 3 years old. MD is an inherited disease and his deceased uncle had it as well.. He needs a 1900.00 US blood test to determine the guilty chromasome, once the quilty one is found then they will know how to attack and medicate the boy. The family have found a hospital in California that can do the test and a doctor here in Maz that can draw the blood and make sure it reaches the hospital in the US. Santiago and his family need our help to raise this amount - pleeeeeease!! This Sat April 17 a fund raising dinner will be held at Heather's Place. A buffet dinner will be served - a selection of Mexican dishes as well as Southern fried chicken, potato salad, cole slaw, home made Boston baked beans and other goodies will be on the buffet table.

COST - 149.00 pesos [ 50.00 pesos will go to Nicholas ]

Music - LOTS!!!! - Santiago, Santana, guitarist Louis, Chris and Greg, there may be more

Raffle with lots of prizes [ mostly booze ]

TIME - 6:30 PM

RESERVATIONS PLEASE [I need to know how much food to make ]

Thanks from Santiago and his family for your support, Heather

Thanks for the post & info mazguy,

I hope the town is full of wellwishing gringos & their wallets are empty when they leave the dinner & raffle.

Good Luck & keep us posted on the results & future needs.

Anyone not in town, wishing to make a donation to Nicolas (Santiago's young son) can send a Paypal donation to him through his close friend Santana. Santana and Santiago work together. The account to donate is Mazsantana@gmail.com Nicolas's family desperately needs funds to assist with his treatment for childhood Muscular Dystrophy. Thanks to anyone who can help.
