A Tea To Benefit Casa de los Angeles

Mexican Mask Gallery at Casa de la Cuesta, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

Yesterday afternoon I attended a tea to benefit the daycare center, Casa de los Angeles, hosted by Heidi and Bill LaVasseur at their bed & breakfast, Casa de la Cuesta. It was a wonderful opportunity to tour the extraordinary mask museum, The Other Face of Mexico, curated by owner Bill LaVasseur (see photo above).

While enjoying different varieties of tea and goodies, we were entertained by local personality, Michael Sudheer, who performed cabaret style music and classical guitarist, Bryan Townsend.
But most important, the well-attended afternoon event raised much needed funds to keep providing free daycare to over 100 children of indigent Mexican women, two nutritious meals a day for moms and siblings who are there with the children, and a variety of other support services.

I found very encouraging the passion that people have to help others.

Thank you for posting! Yes, we can do that at home and abroad. That is what it means to be a "global citizen".
