More than 100 businesses and people donated goods and services to the silent auction at La Paz Community School’s recent fundraising fiesta, A Taste of La Paz. Some 300 community members joined together to raise over $16,000 for the La Paz Scholarship Program, which offers the opportunity of a La Paz education to children from low-income families in Guanacaste. Special recognition goes to the Flamingo Marina Resort for hosting the event for the fourth year in a row, as well as to the four local restaurants that donated food for the event: Angelina’s in Flamingo, Nogui’s and Seasons by Shlomy in Tamarindo, and Ripjack in Playa Grande. La Paz plans to award over $75,000 in scholarships during the 2010-2011 school year.
