FUNDRAISING FOR COSTA RICAN SCHOOLS

As a significant business in the local community of Barrio San Jose de Alajuela, the Staff and Ownership of Hotel LA ROSA de America take our Corporate Stewardship and ethical responsibilities very seriously. We are involved in a number of environmental benefit programs and also educational programs. We feel strongly that to affect meaningful change, one must start in the classroom. A classroom needs to be supplied with both ethical instruction, and with suitable materials and infrastructure.

Recientemente, responding to a request from the Asociacion Caritativa Canadiense for volunteer assistance, nuestro Costa Rica Airport Hotel offered to help organize and fund a 100 person benefit luncheon at the hotel. The objective of the fundraiserto raise money to help repair and upgrade the most poorly maintained schools in Costa Rica. With the recent prolonged education strike and Government of Costa Rica funding problems, we felt that the time was very appropriate to offer a little light into a beleaguered sector of Costarricenses social and educational responsibility.

The response was heartening. On a very positive note, the tickets, which were sold for 12,000 colones each were purchased in almost equal measure by Canadian Expats

and local Ticos. For us this is very important as gaining local involvement is ultimately the key to lasting success. All proceeds from ticket sales were donated to the fundraiser. También, there were a number of raffles, local business donations, and items for purchasemany items being donated by members of the Canadian Club of Costa Rica.

The event was well enjoyed by all and there were many activities and options for the guests to do. Besidesshoppingin the big tent set up for this purpose, guests could go swimming, sunbathing, walk the beautiful grounds of the hotel, sit and watch the FIFA football (soccer) game or simply sit around and talk or of course eat! LA ROSA provided a full buffet for the event with a mix of Canadian and Costarricenses items including favorites such as Barbecue baked beans, Poutine for the French Canadians (!!) and Arroz con Pollo. Ensaladas, appetizers, finger food, canapes, juice and of course lots of desserts rounded out the offering. A cash bar offered beers, wines, various pops, water and of course LA ROSA Sangria!

We were honoured to have the opportunity to host the Canadian Ambassador to Costa Rica, Madam Wendy Drukier as well. In a relaxed and fun atmosphere, Ms Drukier first ascended the pre-preparedsoap boxto give her welcoming speech and then again to oversee the first Raffle Draw. In her speech to the guests, Ms Drukier extended her thanks to all the board members of the Asociacion Caritativa Canadiense (ACC) for their thoughtful and tireless hard work on behalf of others who are more needy.

positive learning experience for them. This was the first time Hotel staff have had to manage not only a full hotel, but also host 100 extra people for the day. From the Owner’s perspective they showcased their naturally friendly Costa Rican heritage well, and provided for a very meaningful and successful event.

This event raised thousands of dollars for the ACC school improvement projects around the country. We hope that this event can be repeated again next yearexcept with even more people attending!

Thank you to all who helped make this event a success.

Primavera en La Rosa – Tweet!

Publicado por en Blog del Hotel | Junio 2, 2013

Mirando alrededor de los jardines de nuestro Hotel de Aeropuerto en Alajuela, contamos con no menos de 8 pájaros nidos activos! Hay Motmots, Yiguirros (arcilla petirrojos o palomas), Tordos y más, todo en busca de hacer casas. Los Motmots son los más interesantes, ya que les gusta hacer nidos en agujeros. Encontramos un motmot ocupados haciendo un nido en el lado de un gran agujero que había cavado para mejorar el drenaje y estábamos a punto de completar. Tuvimos que parar! Bird Nests at Hotel La RosaTenemos nidos en los árboles, nidos en canalones bajantes, nidos en nuestro árbol de limón fuera de nuestro restaurante, nidos en nuestros focos del sensor de movimiento de la puerta frontal, nidos alrededor de la piscina, en nuestro árbol de eucalipto bebé y una mansión de dos pisos triples ostentosa que se construye en una palmera de la Navidad cerca del principal paseo de recepción!!! Sabemos que hay más, pero estos son los más evidentes! Bird Nests at Hotel La Rosa Bird Nest at La Rosa with Blue Eggs

Es evidente que la población de aves locales ha estado leyendo los comentarios en línea acerca de ser un Garden Oasis cerca de la San Jose Costa Rica Airport!!!

Hasta ahora, sólo un nido en realidad ha terminado su función con éxito con la eclosión de tres yigüirros. Unas tres semanas más tarde vimos como la madre les enseñó cómo volar. Lo que un gran primer paso a tomar después de ser apretado en el nido por semana! Otro tiene huevos azulados (No estoy seguro de qué tipo que la madre es muy difícil de alcanzar) y los otros nidos son demasiado alto o se encuentran todavía en el proceso de construcción.

Para nosotros en Hotel La Rosa, esta es una muy buena señal, ya que muestra que incluso con miles de visitantes al año, somos capaces de mantener un equilibrio con la naturaleza y, de hecho, proporcionar una zona verde adecuada para que críen y se sienten suficientemente seguros. Esperamos que muchas de estas aves volver el próximo año para continuar el ciclo! Por el momento,La Rosa nests para los meses de verano y otoño, todavía tenemos nuestro baño del pájaro gigante – la piscina, que es una de las favoritas de un número sorprendentemente grande de nuestras aves locales que con frecuencia se puede ver chapoteando en las escaleras o en algunos casos, hasta buceo en la piscina para darse un baño.

Venga y únase a nosotros en LA ROSA y usted puede también disfrutar de nuestra propiedad, piscina, y jardines de toda la flora y fauna que apoya!
