FOB CANAM INC {501(C)(3)}

Friends of Barron is proud to inform you that we have ascended to a second level of fund-raising. Gone are the taco parties and door-to-door-canvassing with our hands out. No we have embraced technology and have registered as a tax exempt charity (501(C)(3). Your donations are now fully tax deducible against US source income.  This new status also affords FOB the necessary credibility to solicit donations on the internet.  Donate now by going to this link.

Hello from Nigeria

No I’m kidding. My email got hacked and I’m having trouble restoring my contact list. My intent was to reassure everyone that I am fine by sending out a blanket email but that is beyond my power right now . I have gotten so many calls and emails from folks who are concerned about my welfare that I am truly heartwarmed. Thank you for caring. I really appreciate it.

This is a day known for children eating lots of candy. Though candy is fun, delicious and always exciting to receive, it tends to make for a lot of cavities and emotional visits to the dentist. We are raising money for the dental program, that will help aid in general teeth cleaning and any procedures the kids may need, to help have a healthy mouth. Your support will be a great help in these kids lives.

2017-2018 Scholarship Program Update

FOB CANAM INC {501(C)(3)}

Friends of Barron is pleased to present to 2017-2018 Scholarship Candidates. We received a total of eight new applications for University Scholarship and each was outstanding. These kids have already been accepted into their Universities and are attending Fall classes. The cost to support one kid per year in University is $700 USD. We already have commitments from five sponsors to fund the continuing education of their high school students, but we need three more. You might notice that Friends of Barron is no longer offering new high school scholarships. This is because the new school that we helped build, with the support of the EDM Charity Golf Tournament, the Sinaloa Government and others, is now educating 40 Barron high school students.

Total scholarships:  30 (12 prep, 18 university)
New scholarships:   8 (0 prep, 8 university, these are included in the total)
Total cost per year:  $18,000 USD

Book Your Flight Now

A Message from Jorge

Please pass along to all of your network in Denver, we have dropped the round trip price to $349 until Oct 12.   Jorge. 

To fill in some details, Sun Country Airlines is providing round trip charter flights from Denver  on Wednesday’s during January and February. The last return date is the first Wednesday in March. EDM is subsidizing the airline, guaranteeing a certain number of seats. There is also a special price for staying at the hotel and golf is included. 

If you are having guests down during this time this is a great fare, and the free golf might compensate for the hotel room cost although I have no idea what the green fees are going to be. 

I am also unclear if you can book round trips originating in mazatlan just in case someone wants to shoot home for a week during the season. 

Hope to see you soon!  Krisv
