Akumal Ambulance Fundraiser Dinner

Quote from the fb invite

Over the last 8 months, the Akumal Ambulance has attended almost 120 medical emergencies in Akumal! Especially in the high season, we saw the paramedics and life guards pull a number of unresponsive people from our bays, and successfully resuscitate them and get them to hospital in time to make a full recovery! The Red Cross team have also been running training courses in our community on the use of defibrillator machines, of which we now have several throughout Akumal. This will help to dramatically increase the survival/recovery chances of heart attack victims in Akumal.

We are now running low on funds again, and Turtle Bay Cafe has very generously offered to host another fund raiser dinner! We invite you to enjoy us for a fabulous evening of delicious food, live music and comedy entertainment, to help raise funds keep our ambulance and its crew in Akumal.

The Fundraiser Dinner: A 3 course meal plus 2 Cueva Vodka cocktails, and also live music and comedy entertainment with special guests.

The menu will be as follows:

To start (a choice of one of the following)
Chicken tortilla soup
Cesar salad

Main course (a choice of one of the following)
Roasted vegetable lasagna
Grilled fresh fish
Smoked stuffed pork loin

Desert (a choice of one of the following)
Homemade small batch ice-cream
Key Lime Pie

Ticket Price: $650 pesos per person. Thanks to Turtle Bay Cafe, 100% of the ticket price will go directly to the operating costs of the Akumal Ambulance.

How Do I Book?: You can reserve your seats directly at Turtle Bay Cafe, or you can click on the tickets link to buy tickets online by PayPal or Credit Card. We can issue a tax deductible receipt for those who need it.

If you are unable to attend the dinner, but you would like to make a donation to support the Akumal Ambulance, please contact Marieke Brown ( or Alejandra Coronel Dzul (
