Gracias Tulum!

What a night we had... rain and all! Thank you Tulum! I just sent out an e-news with the full story and many additional photos of our recent 2nd Annual Fund Raiser Gala in Tulum. Please sign up for our e-news here! Despite the rain, the evening was full of joy, enthusiasm, and much needed fundraising thanks to the generosity of the community.


The AoC team; Manuel, Edgar, Anaïs, Esteban, Pato, Alyson Ball (member of our Advisory Council) and I feel honored to have received a plethora of encouragement to keep our efforts going. Not only was the event beneficial toward Art of Conservation's work, it also brought together like-minded people reinforcing a collective desire to conserve our beautiful natural spaces, shared biodiversity, and the preservation of indigenous cultures. The team and I feel energized and will continue giving it our all thanks to you our dear past, present, and future supporters.

Please enjoy ALL the photos below. Thanks Anna Fishkin for your fabulous photography!















Many special thanks to Ginger Tulum for preparing delicious food and drinks, Gwen Grosset of Destinations Weddings Tulum for coordinating, Los Padrinos for squeezing into our office space and playing excellent music, Anna Fishkin for her lovely photography, Charlie from Charlie's Restaurant & Bar for being a fabulous auctioneer, Dianne Harper and Marion Vaglio for accepting donations, and Sofie Selin for welcoming guests.
