A few years ago they came up with the idea of forming a charity called ‘Women in Need’ in San Pedro Town.

According to group member and creative artist Sheinbaum, the event was a grand success. “We had a very good show, lots of tourists turned out, and some locals as well. There were more people on Saturday than on Sunday, but we are definitely satisfied with the results from the show, we sold quite a number of paintings and collected a good amount of funds for the charity,” said Sheinbaum.

The weekend show was a great opportunity for residents and visitors alike to admire and purchase local art work while supporting a community program. Organizers would like to thank everyone for their generous support.
