Escuela Internacional de Chefs and creations by Carlos Mane of Voila Catering will send your taste buds soaring with a selection of exquisite botanas.  Several cash bars will serve you with wine, beer and soft drinks.   For fun, place your bids in a Silent Auction offering an entertaining selection of services and art.  For a memorable getaway, buy tickets for the GREAT ESCAPES RAFFLE and win a 2 night stay for two at one of five upscale hotels and haciendas.
