“We far exceeded our expectations and the event brought us nearly halfway to our fundraising goal. Wow!” the library announced.
Auction items included anything from a homemade Indian dinner for six to a three-night stay at a beautiful apartment in Mexico City’s Roma district, round-trip airfare included.
Barely three months into their fundraising drive, MEL is already halfway to reaching its million-peso goal.
A concert raked in 30,000 pesos, and the MEL Board of Directors has pledged a combined 100,000 pesos in personal donations.
Fundraising continues on Thursday, March 22 with a popup tour of the La Ermita neighborhood. Tickets are 300 pesos, available only in advance at the library.
