Grand Bazaar February, 2019


The annual Grand Bazaar was held on Saturday, February 16, from 9 am to 3 pm on the malecon near Hammerheads.  It was lots of fun and well attended.  Thanks for coming out to support us, San Carlos!


Rescate Announces Membership Drive

Rescate officially launched a six-week membership drive at the San Carlos Information Session at Club Deportivo at 7 pm on Thursday, January 17, 2019.  The membership drive will run until the end of February and all new Gold Card Members who join Rescate during the drive will receive a complimentary t-shirt.

Rescate is the San Carlos ambulance and rescue service which also offers emergency first aid on a walk-in basis.  For the past 40 years it has existed and thrived solely through fundraising and donations.  Although Gold Card memberships are a major donation source, there are only 300 memberships at this time.  Given the size of San Carlos and the ex-pat community, our goal is to double the number of memberships by February 28, 2019.

Gold Card annual membership is available at three different levels, all of which are tax deductible in the United States. Gold Card memberships cover the purchasing member, immediate family and non-resident houseguests of the member. You do not need to be a San Carlos resident to buy a membership.

14 Kt. membership ($125 USD) supports Rescate and helps to keep it in your community.

18 Kt. membership ($200 single, $250 family) does the same.  Additionally, members at this level are entitled to:

  • Physician ordered emergency transportation to other hospitals, such as CIMA in Hermosillo, via private ambulance (paid for by Rescate).
  • Free admission to the annual Welcome Back Margarita Party and Theatrical Event.

24 Kt. membership ($500) includes the above and two free entrance passes to the President’s Cup Golf Tournament (coming up soon on January 26th & 27th).

While Gold Card Memberships have personal benefits to the members, the most important role of membership is to support Rescate and keep it in San Carlos. Your participation in the Gold Card program supports the ongoing operation of Rescate as well as the acquisition of additional equipment, personnel and training that will help us continue to meet your emergency needs.

Please join us at an open house at the Rescate building on Thursday, January 31 between 9 am and noon.  Tour the facility and meet some of the staff!   Refreshments provided by the Rescate Auxiliary.
