Community Support Grows for Nosara Wildlife Rescue

By Steve Coan

Nosara Wildlife Rescue celebrated it's 4th annual fundraiser at the beautiful clubhouse and gardens of Selvamar on February 3rd. This was another fun time for all Nosarinians and visitors alike with free bocas and a cash bar.

Many items were up for grabs at the silent auction, with Ric Bryant hosting another successful live auction. With the entry price dropped to a $30 donation, the event was well attended.

When the dust settled, Nosara Wildlife Rescue netted approximately $6,500. Several auction items were held back for an Auction by Email to come in the near future.

– Mary Brennan, Nice Alterman, Paula White, Bobbi Johnson and Rosie Heindl for heading up the various committees making this event run smoothly
– Ric Bryant for his expertise with the auctioneering

– Gerardo Bolanos of the Harmony Hotel and their chef Kimberly Nogeura for the yummy brownies
– Rusvel of Super Nosara for use of the tables and chairs
– Also, a special thanks to those who donated the many beautiful auction items.

A huge thanks to those volunteers who worked the food and beverage, ticket sales, solicitation of donated auction items and prep and cleanup of the Clubhouse. A Nosara Wildlife Rescue On Line Auction will be coming up soon to auction those items that didn't make the Auction block gavel. Stay tuned!

Sustainable Homes: Nosara Leading the Way

In Costa Rica, beaches, hotels and businesses can earn awards for their environmental efforts – why not homes? With this question in mind, I began developing the “Sustainable Home Award” proposal.
