ADANA Dog Show - 13 May 2012

Dog Show Breaks All Records

In spite of warm sunshine, other public events taking place in Estepona and the worsening economic climate, ADANA’s annual dog show, held in the Estepona Palacio, thanks to the Ayuntamiento of Estepona, broke all records for both attendance and entries to the various competitions and most importantly, money raised to help care for the large number of dogs looked after at the ADANA Perrera in the Parque de los Pedregales.


Guadalmina Charity Bridge Day

Our thanks go to Trisha Mansfield and the Guadalmina Charity Bridge Day which took place on 4 March 2012 and which raised €940, plus €79.56 from the Marbella Bridge Club hucha. A separate auction on 8 March 2012 of golf green fees and other items was held which raised a further €605, a grand total of €1,624.56.

The fundraising events were masterminded by Trisha Mansfield who organizes the café/bar at the Dog show/Christmas Fair/Jazz concert and supported by many volunteers who folded raffle tickets, poured champagne and made sandwiches and cakes for the 40 bridge players who supported the event. There were many generous donations of prizes for the competition and the raffle and all the items auctioned were also donated.

Thanks to all involved in raising this impressive sum from all at ADANA, both human and canine!!

Big Band Concert - 24 Mar 2012

On 24th March The King's Bruton Big Band gave a concert for ADANA in Estepona. It seems no matter how hard we try we always end up with multiple clashes and this was no exception. We had The Sound of Music - The International Theatre Studio's latest offering - and an inordinate number of birthday parties on the same night but we managed a reasonable crowd.

The band is amazing. Composed of school students between the ages of 14 and 18 they show a poise and professionalism much beyond their years. Four vocalists and a band of 20 players soon had the audience on their feet and dancing to the sounds of Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller.


Valentine's Day Lunch - 14 Feb

The Longmans sisters are organising an event in aid of ADANA at 1pm on Valentine’s Day, 14 February 2012 in Manilva Square near their bookshop.

The price will be €8 for Hot Pot – either meat or vegetable – plus apple pie and cream. Please buy your tickets and order your menu choice in advance as soon as possible at the bookshop or telephone on 952 800 975 or 617 943 488.

ADANA Christmas Fair - 18 Dec

ADANA Christmas Fair breaks previous records!!

The annual ADANA Christmas Fair was held on 18 December 2011 as usual at the Palacio de Congresos, Estepona and this year broke all records, earning a record amount for the upkeep of the Pedregales Kennels and the two hundred dogs cared for by the Association.


Paella Lunch - 9 Sep 2011

Paella Lunch at Plaza Manilva, Estepona (outside Longmans bookshop) on Friday 9th September at 13.30. Paella, salad and a glass of sangria for €5!

More than 80 people attended the event which raised €733. Many thanks to Mari Pepa Ortiz and the ladies of the Alzheimer's Society who provided the food. Thanks to Hermione, Sonia, Tim, Sean and other helpers. Thanks also to Jane Baldwin who raised well over 200 euros on the raffle alone.

A Roman Night - 10 July 2011

Each year ADANA celebrates summer with a fabulous fundraising dinner party in a private garden in Estepona and this year was no exception.

Our choice of theme this year was a Roman Night with an all authentic Ancient Roman Menu which was greatly enjoyed by the many guests. Guests arrived appropriately dressed as Roman centurions and slaves - there was even a glamorous Cleopatra! Drinks and Roman burgers were served beside the pool followed by dinner by candlelight.


Coffee Morning in April 2011

Due to the conflict with the Royal Wedding in Britain, the monthly coffee morning will be held on Thursday the 28th instead of Friday the 29th.
