Point Reyes Day of the Dead

$185 of $5,500 goal

Raised by 4 people in 9 months
The Day of the Dead is a traditional Meso-American holiday dating back thousands of years. It’s a celebration honoring the cycle of life and memories of beloved ancestors, family and friends. Since its creation more than ten years ago, the Point Reyes Day of the Dead / Dia de los Muertos celebration has grown to become a large multi-cultural community gathering featuring altar installations, the sharing of traditional food, music by the Coro de los Muertos, performances by Aztec dancers, face-painting and a walking procession with Catrinas (skeleton art sculptures). This celebration commemorates our relationships to both our ancestors that have passed away and also to each other.

The go-fund-me fundraising goal is to help offset the expenses of producing this growing community celebration. Over 1,000 hours of volunteer time go into the event and several organizations donate significant time and resources. However, as the event grows in popularity, we need help to cover increasing costs to continue making this event a tremendous success. Funds will help offset the cost of face-painting, art materials, local publicity and the traditional community dinner.

The Day of the Dead is happening on Saturday, October 28th.  We hope to hope to have funds in place by October 10th so that we can make this the best event yet!  Our West Marin community has always been generous and we are very grateful for the support.

El Día de los Muertos es una fiesta tradicional mesoamericana que data de miles de años. Es una celebración que honra el ciclo de la vida y los recuerdos de antepasados ​​amados, familiares y amigos. Desde su creación hace más de diez años, el Día de los Muertos de Point Reyes ha crecido hasta convertirse en una gran celebración multicultural de la comunidad con instalaciones de altar, comida tradicional, música del Coro de los Muertos, presentaciones de bailarines aztecas, pintura facial y una procesión de caminar con Catrinas (esculturas de arte del esqueleto). Esta celebración conmemora nuestras relaciones a nuestros antepasados ​​que han fallecido y también entre uno al otro.

La meta de recaudación de fondos de ‘go-fund-me’ es ayudar a compensar los gastos de producir esta creciente celebración comunitaria. Más de 1.000 horas de tiempo voluntario está dado al evento y varias organizaciones donan tiempo y recursos significativos. Sin embargo, a medida que el evento crece en popularidad, necesitamos ayuda para cubrir los crecientes costos para continuar haciendo que este evento sea un tremendo éxito. Los fondos ayudarán a compensar el costo de la cena mexicana gratis ofrecida a todos los asistentes, pintura facial, materiales de arte y publicidad local.

El Día de los Muertos está ocurriendo el sábado 28 de octubre. Esperamos tener fondos para el 1er de octubre para poder hacer planes. Nuestra comunidad de West Marin siempre ha sido generosa y estamos muy agradecidos por el apoyo.
