XIV Solidarity Campaign with Baracoa

P1050362The XIV Solidarity Campaign with Baracoa (Cuba) enjoyed some sunshine, thank God, as there was a worry that recent rains would spoil the fund-raising event, which, by the way, will be using some of the funds obtained to help the people of Haiti.
Joaquín was in fine Olympic-rice-throwing spirit, entertaining the crowd with his peculiar way of adding rice and other coingredients to a giant paella pan. There was also live music provided by the duet, Sortilegio. There was also dancing provided by Cubanísmo and Sabor Andaluz.
Several local business provided goods for the raffle, including legs of cured ham, boxes of wine, suckling pig, restaurant meals and holiday trips. Also, on sale, were two books which have been edited and published by the charity; one entitled, “Lo que hemos hecho,”which covers all the aid provided by the charity for this Cuban town, and the other entitled, “La Muerte de Evangelio,” which is a novel based on the history of the Cuban boxer by that name.
