Mike’s Big Bash 2020!
I hope you are safe and healthy in these crazy times.
Normally this would be the invitation to my annual BIG BASH AT CASA PILA.
It would have been unlucky number 13, which fits, since everything about this year has been turned upside down.

I cannot justify celebrating when so many people are struggling.
Nothing would be worse than for thousands of unemployed Costa Ricans to see photos of people partying and eating, when they are struggling to live on beans and rice.
I spend on average about $15,000 each year throwing my party and I feel it is the best interest of everyone in our area of Costa Rica for me to spend that money continuing our weekly food drives, as so many people are still going to be needing our help for months to come.
I want to thank everyone who has donated and continues to donate, the generosity has been overwhelming THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART. Thanks to everyone we are feeding up to 500 families per week and thousands of pets. Please continue to donate, no amount is too small. You can PAYPAL or ZELLE at firstname.lastname@example.org and put FOOD DRIVE in the subject.
Every year we always support the TOYS FOR TOTS organized by the Guanacaste Veterans Association as well as the TOY DRIVE by Patas y Manos and this year we will be collecting them again. I feel it is more needed now than ever, as so many children have suffered drastically due to the economic shut downs. Nothing puts a smile on the face of a child like a toy for Christmas.
Please find it in your heart to buy a toy, or 40, or as many as your pocket book will allow.
We will have collection boxes at two of my TRES AMIGOS OFFICES.
Playas del Coco at the PACIFICO retail village.
Playa Hermosa at the original TRES AMIGOS office.
Please do NOT wrap the toys. Just bring it to my office. We are collecting NEW toys for CHILDREN 8 YEARS OLD AND YOUNGER ONLY.
If you cannot physically drop off a toy, you can send me money via PAYPAL or ZELLE to email@example.com put TOYS FOR TOTS in the subject. I will then personally go shopping on behalf of all of your amazing donations. NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL.
Thanks again for your generosity. I look forward to seeing you all very soon. Please stay safe.
COME ON DOWN BABY!
