Join us for an extraordinary evening
of 18th Century Intrigue…
From the moment you enter the Z Club you’ll know that you are in for a very, very special evening! The ultra-modern design of the facility with its high-style and giant photo murals definitely lets you know that you are in for an extraordinary celebration!
If you didn’t come wearing a mask, you’ll be handed one as you enter – just the first of many gifts that evening! But we’d love it if you came fully decked out in a masked ball costume!
Yes, this is a night when you can definitely expect the unexpected — dancers, acrobats, fortune tellers, and even dancing robots! Plus we’ll have New Year’s Eve celebrations every hour on the hour from 10:00 PM on, because it’s always midnight somewhere!!!!
And oh, the food! You’ll dine on exquisite fare catered by Nomada, San Miguel’s most innovative restaurant. And of course there’ll be champagne – lots of champagne, as well as a full bar.
So join us in ringing in the New Year with exciting entertainment, fabulous food, and joyful dancing!

Patronato Pro Niños
By promoting good health and oral hygiene, by providing necessary medical and dental care, by working with other health care providers as advocate and funding source, we help children from economically disadvantaged families in San Miguel de Allende lead healthier, fuller lives. And we’ve been doing this for 45 years. We now see second and third generations of the same family. These families trust Pro Niños. And we’ve earned that trust by helping literally thousands and thousands of children through the years. With your help, we will continue this tradition and add to the many programs we already have in place.
Please donate now so that more children may THRIVE.
Founded in 1970, Pro Niños was able to provide medical care to only 20 children in our first year of operation. Since then, we have grown in size and scope so that we now provide dental care to over 9,000 children, and medical care to 2,500 children in and around San Miguel de Allende. In total, we give more than 23,000 treatments a year. To serve these children, we have on staff four dentists, a doctor, a full time social worker and eight support staff. We are accredited in Mexico as a charitable, non-profit organization (Asociación Civil), registered in the Federal Registry and awarded with tax exemption status. We are also incorporated in the United States as a 501 (c)(3) under the name “FTC International, Inc.” to accept U.S grants and individual donations. All Mexican children from birth to 16 years of age who do not receive medical care from private insurance or social security benefits are eligible for our medical and dental care programs. It is estimated that 44,000 children fall into the 0-to-16-year-old category. Less than 15% receive social security benefits, leaving many without adequate medical care. We coordinate our services with two Mexican government programs (Seguro Popular and Nueva Generación) and fill some much-needed service gaps. Dental care, for other than the middle and upper-economic class, is nonexistent. To preserve dignity and promote parental involvement with necessary follow-up care, families are asked to participate in the cost of their child’s care according to their ability, which in many cases is as little as ten pesos. Every morning at 7:30, our three mobile dental vans depart San Miguel to visit some of the hundreds of villages needing dental services. Teachers, parents and children often meet our dentist and her assistant/driver at the entrance of the village. In a typical day, our dentists are able to dispense 25-30 treatments and the vans will return to the village for as long as it takes to serve every child. The medical and dental care we provide can dramatically change lives and in some cases, even save lives. Once we have determined an individual child’s needs, we work closely with medical providers – as advocate and funding source – to make sure the child gets the best care possible. On any given day in the clinic, our doctor treats as many as 20 children direc
