Texas Hold 'Em Fundraiser
We're embarking on an exciting new project with Hekab be Biblioteca in Akumal playa! But we need YOUR help!
It has become very apparent that many expats and tourists want to donate medical supplies as well as their time and expertise in helping to teach and empower the local population to adopt better health and medical routines. As it is not possible to volunteer, screen, test and educate in a Mexican medical facility without a Mexican medical license, then there is a serious need for a permanent “non-medical” facility to be created in order to maximize the impact of the assets being generously offered.
Hekab be Biblioteca has generously agreed to loan us a permanent space in their facility so that we can create a permanent health education facility in Akumal where children and families can be educated on a variety of preventative care techniques and provided with the tools and equipment, all free of charge. More details on this project can be found here:
The physical space will need to be renovated and supplied with plumbing, flooring, cabinets, counters, entry for, exam/education area, and equipment. In order to do so, we need to raise funds! We estimate $8,000 USD will be needed. You can help support this project by competing in our monthly Texas Hold 'Em Fundraiser!
This monthly fundraiser will be held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, beginning on Tuesday, April 13th.
What: Commissioner-led, Traditional Texas Hold 'Em Tournament
When: 2nd Tuesday of each month, 12noon check-in with 1pm tournament start, 4:30pm tournament end.
Where: Two 10-person (max) tables under open-air palapa at Turtle Bay Cafe, Akumal Playa
Details: 500 pesos buy-in with one re-buy
Our dream is for the monthly tournament to initially raise the funds needed for the building project, followed by providing needed funds for equipment, and ultimately for purchase and replenishment of needed supplies and educational materials.
