The fifth annual Guanajuato Nights fundraiser on 9 November 2019 was again a big success! Escuela Mexicana has been part of this event for two years now, giving 2 certificates for 4 people to study Spanish and culture in our school and lodging in our School Residence for 1 week. With also ticket sales, raffle, silent auction, and live auction, the event had gross receipts of around $18,000.
Guanajuato and Ashland have been sister cities for over 50 years!
These funds will help support students from Southern Oregon University (SOU) who wish to study at the University of Guanajuato, and vice versa.
Denise Baxter, an Ashland artist, received an award for giving the people of Guanajuato an artistic vision of Ashland by designing and painting a mural on a prominent street in our beautiful city of Guanajuato.
