Family-Supporter of the Month

Hungry children get a hot meal every school day from Amigos de Boquete. Dallys del Carmen Dennis, the organization’s energetic administrator, oversees after-school computer and homework assistance and the daily preparation of hot nutritious meals for the students at thirteen primary schools in the Boquete area. Learn more about their progam at amigosdeboquete.org In addition, twelve A de B families enjoy monthly food support from Buenos Vecinos. Visit our BVB website (see above) to read more about our programs.

A Successful Tropical Treats Event

Thanks to raffle and food contributors and enthusiastic party-goers, BVB’s mid-May’s fund-raising event brought in enough funds to provide almost a whole month of support for all of BVB’s one-hundred and ten families! Tina LaPorte won the grand raffle prize, a lodging and dining package from Hotel Bocas del Mar. Brian Christofferson won the white-water river rafting tour from Boquete Outdoor Adventures, and Bonnie Williams won the bird-watching tour and lunch from Craig Bennett and Karen Hill. The Panama Red Rum door prize-winner was Cynthia Dunne.

BVB Volunteers Lead Fund-Raising Efforts

Germaine Sturtz, one of the many creative and generous BVB volunteers, raised enough money through her jewelry sales, her annual “Mama-Mia” dance party and the raffle of her hand-crafted metal bowl last quarter to feed one BVB family for an entire year. Germaine and her husband Richard champion even more BVB families throughout the year.

Early this year Sylvette Day and Johnnie Fernandez created a magnificent quilt which Sylvette and others raffled off to garner enough proceeds to support four BVB families for a year. Sylvette’s tireless pursuit of sales for all of our raffles has won her the title of “ BVB raffle queen”. She also provides more support to BVB clients every month.
