Hekab Be Library Needs Donations for Online Raffle

Once again, Hekab Be Biblioteca will be running its fabulous Annual Fall Online Raffle. The fundraising event will run from Monday, September 15 through Tuesday, September 30.

In anticipation of the launch date in less than two weeks, Hekab Be Director Anne Gabbert is soliciting great donations that will entice library supporters to purchase as many raffle tickets as possible!  As always, some of the library’s long-time supporters have donated wonderful items like custom artwork and handcrafted jewelry. There are also specialized Hekab Be Biblioteca gifts from their CafePress store.

What Anne and her committee are really hoping for this year are raffle prizes that will not only encourage people to support the library, but to visit the area and increase the visibility of Akumal as a family-friendly destination and a community where all work together for the future of our little piece of paradise.

Some ideas for possible donations might be:
• A family or event photo shoot
• A complimentary night out with dinner and drinks
• A certificate for babysitting services
• Complimentary meal certificates at local businesses
• A complimentary weekend (or week!) stay at a condo, hotel, or villa
• A week/month of complimentary yoga sessions
• A complimentary dive instruction class or open water dive session
• Complimentary passes to a local tourist attraction
• A complimentary massage or manicure/pedicure package
• A private dinner prepared by a local chef
• A gift certificate or voucher for a local store or business
• A gift certificate for a celebration cake or event planning
• A gift certificate for an excursion with local expert guides

Please contact Anne Gabbert if you are able to contribute to this fundraising effort. She can be reached via email at directorakumallibrary@gmail.com. Also, please feel free to share this information with others who might be interested in donating as well.

Hekab Be Library runs only three fundraisers during the year and each one is crucial to meeting their annual operating budget of 20,000 USD. Won’t you do your part to help us continue to thrive and grow?
