We sincerely thank you for your contribution to the success of “SailFest 2009”. With your enthusiastic participation, we raised $654,320.MN for the children. Because the world economy is in tatters, our expectations were much more modest. You are our heroes.

We are especially gratified by the support and participation of our local community. Approximately 200 businesses donated gifts and services for our auctions and raffles. More than 50 local residents, including Ninos Adelante scholarship students, volunteered to help organize our events.

Zihuatanejo’s musicians, and their international friends, performed at three benefit concerts and donated their talent to produce a music CD, "Sounds of Zihua 2009", raising more than $100,000. MN. Imagine, building classrooms with voices and guitars. What a delightful concept!

We will continue to work in partnership with the Municipality of Zihuatanejo de Azueta and Rotary International to provide educational opportunities for the disadvantaged children of Zihuatanejo.

Gracias, Mis Amigos!!
