The owners of El Monteón Storage are getting creative. They are donating four of their abandoned lockers and a fishing boat to a local cause. The contents of each 5’w x 10’d x 12’h locker will be auctioned off to the highest bidder sometime in February and all proceeds will be donated to Jaltemba Equine Education Project (J.E.E.P.). More details will be announced soon.
If you won’t be around in February, you can still support this great cause…

Silent Auction items will include private riding lessons for adults and children, an opportunity to be a “Charra for the Day” and many other fabulous items.
Tickets are $250 pesos per person and may be purchased at Los Compadres Restaurant, Carnicería La Nayarit, other local businesses and from members of the J.E.E.P. Team. We are also asking that event-goers bring school supplies to donate to the Centros de Atención Múltiple #9 in Las Varas. You can learn more about the special relationship J.E.E.P. has with this school.
