“Boquete Has Heart” An Upcoming Charity Event


On Saturday, January 13th, 5-8 pm Buenos Vecinos de Boquete and Amigos de Animales Boquete will sponsor an event at the Animales Event Center in Alto Boquete.  Admission tickets of $10, including a complimentary drink, will go on sale next month.

This fun-filled event will feature hors d'oevres, a cash bar, and casino games. There will be raffles, silent auction tables, and the evening will culminate in a live auction featuring items valued at $500 or more.

One of these live auction items is a seven-night seven-day stay for two at Villa Kokolishi, located in the Kralendijk district of Bonaire. The small island of Bonaire located in the Dutch Caribbean is well-known by diving and snorkeling enthusiasts. Villa Kokolishi is a modern and well-appointed apartment situated poolside and a short walk from the beach, dive shops and restaurants. It includes ground transportation to and from the Bonaire airport. This amazing vacation destination valued at $952 has been donated by Gijs and Hanny Hoogerkamp of Potrerillos Arriba.

We Appreciate.....

Romero's Super Mercado in Boquete for allowing us to once again collect food and cash donations during our most recent food drive. We also thank the generous shoppers who gave BVB enough in combined donations to support two families for a whole year.


And also.....

The Amigos de Boquete Foundation and founder/administrator Phillip McGuigan for the recent delivery of 400 boxes of MannaPack, a vitamin and mineral enriched rice and soy product. And to the intrepid band of helpers who unloaded the thirty-pound boxes for transfer to our storage unit. This remarkable donations will provide monthly inclusions of MannaPack to all of our families for the next twelve to fourteen months.

Family of the Month October 2017

Julia knows how to live with adversity. As a child she suffered burns that are visible even today.  It prepared her for what was to come when she became a mom to Misael. Little four-year old Misael was born with cerebral palsy and other health issues that have stunted his growth. But Julia and his stepdad Luterio meet the challenges that come with with round-the-clock care for a CP child. They also provide love and support for their other two children, two-year old Nina and six-month old Carlos.The family lives in a rented room for a dollar a day and their sole income is from the work that Luterio can find at nearby farms. The work opportunities are, unfortunately,  inconsistent so the family is grateful for the food assistance they receive from Buenos Vecinos each month. And they look to the Handicap Foundation (FPI) for help with some of their medical expenses, with physical therapy and social/emotional support. Together BVB and FPI address the critical needs of those who most require our help.

If you would like to help families like this and the efforts of Buenos Vecinos de Boquete, we would appreciate your donation of any size. It is important for you to know that we are a small all-volunteer force with no administrative or overhead costs. Every dollar of your donation goes to the purchase or storage of food for our clients.

Buenos Vecinos de Boquete's wholesale purchase power enables us to furnish our clients more food than they could purchase on their own in the store with the same amount of money.

When you make that important decision to help feed the less fortunate in our community, you have truly become a “good neighbor”. When you donate $360 a year or $30 a month (about the cost of a daily latte), you will become a Coconut Foundation member as an acknowledgment of your concern and generosity.
