On Tuesday, January 29, the Merida English Library (MEL) is holding its most important event of the year – a Silent Auction – to raise funds for Phase 2 of our building expansion, which will add 2 classrooms, a cafe and 3 additional bathrooms.
This year’s auction items reflect the time and talent of MEL members and other community leaders. We have a variety of personal services, classes, day trips, artwork, and vacation stays. Below is just a sample of what you will have an opportunity to enjoy in exchange your for financial contribution.
I hope you will join us on January 29 at 7pm to help us reach our 2019 fundraising goal.
Tickets are 300 pesos and are available at MEL, Calle 53 #524 x 66 y 68, Merida Centro.
