Casa Picasso and Wine de Vine dinner


Last night was the Casa Picasso and Wine De Vine dinner, featuring Lapostolle Wines and a delicious 5 course meal. Benjamin Fraysse from Lapostolle  was there discussing the wines and answering peoples questions. I wanted to go snap a few pics for Red Cross so I asked tacoboy to meet me for a drink. It worked out perfectly as we got to say goodbye see Cindy who was taking herself on a baby and boyfriend free date. She and Tinker are leaving the 10:00am Maya Air flight this morning and doing the Belize Mexico England journey to go see Grandma. A few of the SPBRC board members were there having dinner as well, and at 7:15 they had planned a live auction with our favorite island auctioneer Bob Utsman.

I thought I would be announcing Bob raised lots of money for San Pedro Belize Red Cross with the Chinese Auction that both businesses generously gave the SPBRC permission to do at the dinner.  However the prize got to big and the board decided last minute they did not want to monopolize the dinner since it was not an officially anounced event.

The fantastic Belize Holiday Package will be auctioned off in the near future so stay tuned for when and where as this is one auction worth attending.
