Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

Kids Saving the Rainforest is happy to announce that it raised $4,511 at the fundraiser to save the rescue center! Thank you to those who have not yet been thanked in this column for your support. Firstly, musical performers BenJammin, Corey Butler and Proyecto Latino all played very well.

Thanks also to Costa Rica Substance Abuse Recovery Center, Worldwide Small Change Foundation, Safari Adventure Tours, Hotel Byblos, Mono Azul, MidWorld Tours, Rafiki Safari White Water Rafting Tours, Randy Jones’ Massage for Everyone Spa, Brisas de Nara, Dr. Alberto González, Mark Goldstein, the Henley’s, Kimberly and Tom Barron, Marisquería Kúkula, Ronny’s Place, Digits Phonebook Resource Guide, Hotel Gaia, Freddy’s Park Tours, the Berkowitz Sklar Family, Lorraine Champagne, and Jenn and Brian Correia.

Digits Phone Book, a resource guide, is coming out with a new edition. It is a great annual publication for our area and now includes Jacó, Manuel Antonio, Quepos and areas south. Each area will have its own section. The publication is free to the public.  Contact Dawn Roberts at 8916-4322 or digits.ojochal@gmail.com to place an ad.

As they do every year, Safari Adventures will celebrate its anniversary with special activities. This year, festivities will take place at noon on Saturday, Sept. 29, and on Sunday, Sept. 30 at 9 a.m. There will be horseback riding, cycling and athletics, and a traditional ATV rally, plus typical meals and other activities on the Campo Ferial de Paquita.

All proceeds will benefit the family of Rigo Jiménez, a friend of the community who died earlier this year. For more info, contact Roger Arce of Safari Adventures of Costa Rica at safarimangrovetours@yahoo.com or 2777-7111.
