Mistongo, Fiesta and Frida

The Pátzcuaro Friends of the Biblioteca Federal Pública Gertrudis Bocanegra recently held their annual fundraising event. The venue was again Restaurante Mistongo with the collaboration of Susi Santiago. Susi's varied and tasty botanas were much appreciated, especially the pizza freshly made by her nephew. All profits from ticket sales, $100 pesos each, and the silent auction will benefit the library.

Hospitable and smiling Susi from Argentina, owner of the Mistongo Restaurant.

Eating and dancing while doing good works...

Among many very nice items donated for the fund raiser was a luxurious, boxed art book entitled Frida de Frida. The evening's silent auction concluded with an overt bidding war over the book. This final mêlée was not so silent, quite humorous and very profitable.

Thanks to the Amigos de la Biblioteca, to Susi Santiago of the Mistongo, and to all who participated for making this event such a success. If you weren't there you missed an enjoyable evening for a good cause.
