Beachside Auction to Support the Kids of Akumal

Come support local Akumal kids, and enjoy a fun afternoon on the beach while you’re at it! The Hekab Be Library will host its 7th Annual Silent Auction on Wednesday, May 4 from 3:00 – 5:00 pm at Lolha Restaurant and Snack Bar, located right by the ocean on Akumal Bay. In addition to the silent auction, this event will also feature live entertainment by local favorites the Salty Snowbirds.

Proceeds from the silent auction will help Hekab Be Library to fund its programs for the kids of Akumal here in the southern Riviera Maya.

Akumal charity auctionOver the years, the Hekab Be Library has become a pillar of the Akumal community. They offer all kinds of fun educational activities for local kids, whether they’re teaching them about keeping beaches clean, ocean wildlife, how to be eco-friendly, or how to create some colorful arts and crafts. The Hekab Be Library is a place for local Akumal children to learn and grow in this beautiful beach community, making it an ideal organization to support when you’re living in Akumal or just visiting on vacation.
