Vive El Sueño Entrepreneur Showcase 2018


On Saturday, March 3, 2018, Vive El Sueño (VeS) held their first annual Entrepreneur Showcase event, which gave it's graduates a chance to showcase their businesses to the local community. Attendees enjoyed live music by the Mini Supers while browsing the exhibits, and sampling  local and specialty food and drinks offered by participating businesses. Admission proceeds and raffle ticket sales went towards supporting the VeS program. 


The raffle was big hit, thanks to the many generous businesses that donated items and services. Among the prizes were yoga classes at Harmony Healing Centre, a gift certificate to El Chivo, a boogie board, designer dresses by Gonca, and a wooden hand plane. 

A HUGE thank you to all of our community sponsors, volunteers, participants and attendees that joined us for our first fundraising event and Entrepreneur Showcase. We couldn’t have done it without you. As they say, it takes a village and what a wonderful conscious community we have here in Nosara!
