If you want to do good, feel good, and have good fun at the same time, then join DANCEmotion in a sun-filled studio for a global journey of free style dance and movement.
No matter your age, body type, flexibility range, gender, dance training, or fitness level, everyone is invited to put on some comfortable clothes and participate in DANCEmotion. There is no instruction given, no choreography to worry about, and no steps to learn. “DANCEmotion is not about being graceful, coordinated, or beautiful. It is about having fun, feeling more confident in your body, and manifesting gratitude” according to the coordinator, Anne Challamel.
All of your 50 peso donation for the class goes directly to the Mujeres en Cambio scholarship fund that helps to keep young rural Mexican women in school. Hope you will join the fun!
The luncheon was an exquisite event–with wonderful food, a captivating speaker and great company, all in a perfect setting! Many thanks to the lovely, elegant Hotel Hacienda Mexiquito for hosting our event and to our luncheon speaker, Janet Dawson, art historian and lecturer.
Held at a lovely Tuscan-style villa just minutes from San Miguel, Men Who Cook was one of our most popular events of 2016. We are very grateful to our excellent cooks who presented an array of delicious entrees, hors d’oeurves, and desserts. Our guests strolled around the 2-acre property filled with ancient mesquite trees and lovely gardens while tasting the varied menu. A good time was had by all!
This lovely benefit luncheon, at which we honored our special friend, Alicia Franyutti, was held at Hacienda de Las Flores. For the past 20 years, Alicia, the owner of Hacienda de Las Flores, has provided MeC with a home for our successful fundraising luncheons. Our guest chef for this special celebration was Michael Coon, consummate chef, cooking teacher, and culinary travel guide. The food was fabulous and the camaraderie fantastic. It was a sweet, nostalgic afternoon.
