From The Desk Of Gerie Bedsoe

San Miguel de Allende -- C.A.S.A. -- Our Special La Carrera Cause

Dear Carreraistas:

On Thursday, April 16th, "Californians for C.A.S.A." will meet in San Francisco at "Workspace Limited," 2150 Folsom Street, 6:00-9:00 PM. That's between 17th and 18th Streets. Because food and rink will be provided, it is important that you RSVP to me soon.

C.A.S.A. is the charitable organization that the Coyote Convoy supports in San Miguel de Allende on our journey down to the start of the race in Mexico each year.

C.A.S.A. provides a wide variety of programs to thousands of Mexican families in the San Miguel area -- from medical clinics to family-planning, child care, and anti-family violence programs. C.A.S.A. also has a world class midwifery program that is being emulated throughout Mexico and South America.

With the support of Carreraistas in the U.S. and Mexico, C.A.S.A. is also planning to launch a program to educate and train mechanics.

Please join us on April 16 to meet the co-founders of C.A.S.A., Ms. Nadine Goodman and Mr. Alejandro Gonzalaez, and to hear more about this wonderful organization, now in it's 26th year.

Please let me know if you are able to attend.

Additional info is available at www. and C.A.S.A. is registered as a non-profit under the IRS code, so contributions are tax-deductible.
