Taste of Latin America Event At The Blue Shutters Inn Benefits Ecuador Medical Relief

From the Blue Shutters Inn Blog

With Good Harbor Beach as a spectacular backdrop, friends of the Blue Shutters, together with friends of Por Cristo, came together on Sunday November 14 to get a "taste of Latin America" — food and wine with a South American flair, scarves and jewelry from Ecuador, and conversations with some of the folks behind the medical missions to one of neediest parts of the world. Our open house spotlighting the work of Por Cristo was a hit, with dozens of guests who came to sample some Latin American cuisine (another big thank you to Langham Hotel chef Mark Sapienza) and check out the items Por Cristo’s Medical Services Director Deborah Clark brought back from her trips to Ecuador .  All the funds raised from sale of these items goes to support the work of Por Cristo. The organization’s executive director Joe Reardon was on hand to share more background on Por Cristo’s work — and the Blue Shutters innkeepers chipped in with wines from Argentina and Chile , and some regional music. Gloucester and Good Harbor Beach may be thousands of miles from Ecuador , but for few hours on Sunday we all got a "taste of Latin America " — and, more importantly, provided some support for a very good cause. Thanks to everyone who joined us — we hope you had as much fun as we did.
