Special recognition goes to the Flamingo Marina Resort for hosting the event for the fourth year in a row, as well as to the four local restaurants that donated food for the event: Angelina’s in Flamingo, Nogui’s and Seasons by Shlomy in Tamarindo, and Ripjack in Playa Grande. La Paz plans to award over $75,000 in scholarships during the 2010-2011 school year.
