All are invited to attend the now-famous Finca La Maya benefit on Saturday 26 February, 3-7 p.m..  Festivities will include visits to La Maya’s classrooms and bilingual library, live music, children performing folkloric dances, refreshments, and surprise entertainment. A silent auction will include fabulous offerings such as a private plane tour, a cruise aboard a luxurious yacht, surf lessons, beach getaway weekends, and dining certificates for numerous popular and new restaurants in the beach communities.

Proceeds for the benefit will provide scholarships and study materials for outstanding young students who help teach La Maya’s free community programs every Saturday. Individuals or companies who can donate an item or service for the silent auction are encouraged to contact Finca La Maya directly,

Finca La Maya is a non-profit activity in Panama. Its goal is to enhance educational and vocational opportunities for local Panamanians by providing free enrichment programs in language, culture and the arts.  La Maya’s programs include English language courses, “Art for Kids”, a computer lab and “Family Movie Night”. Last year, La Maya opened a new community library offering bilingual books and DVDs. Up to one hundred participants have attended the weekly free community programs at the facility in San Carlos, coming from Panama’s Pacific coast interior communities as far away as Chorrera and Rio Hato.

La Maya welcomes local families and residents as well as those who want to learn more about how these extraordinary programs are changing the lives of local families. For more information please call (507) 240-8281, email info@fincalamaya.com or visit the web site at http://www.fincalamaya.com/?p=19
