11th Annual KKIS Auction and Dinner – Sights and Sounds of Mexico!
We are thrilled to announce another Auction and Dinner after a whole year without being able to meet up in person… We are back, better, bigger, and stronger than ever!!!
We look forward to finally reuniting with all of our lovely friends and supporters at one of our favorite rooftops in Playa, The Reef 28.
This event will help send our graduating high school scholars to university in the summer through scholarships. The annual auction has historically represented 25% of our full-year budget and this year more than ever, we need it! We hope you will join us.
With this Auction and Dinner, we aim to raise: $70K USD, which not only will allow us to strengthen our relationship with sponsors, donors, and attendees but will also inspire & delight the audience with all the love and effort we are putting into this event. Be prepared to experience all the wonder and excitement of the Sights and Sounds of Mexico!
What to expect?
Our 11th Annual Auction and Dinner will include food, activities, music, and decoration inspired by traditional Mexican markets themes with modern twists… Definitely, a night to remember!

Big hearts, the determination of being part of the change, the support of sponsors, donors, volunteers, bidders, and The Reef 28 staff at the Auction and Dinner are what make this highly anticipated event possible each year.

Before you go!
So many children living in Mexico are not able to go to high school because they are charged a fee – it is not free!
While 12 years of education in Mexico is compulsory, the average number of years of education is only 9. Students who want to go on to high school need to pay for an entrance exam, school fees, transportation, and uniform costs. We believe in public education. It is not a perfect system in any country, but we believe that all children should have access to 12 years of education.
The good news is it costs less than $2 USD per day to keep a student in high school.
If you are anything like us, you will agree that so much of why we love Playa del Carmen has to do with the amazing locals. So why not do something for the community in return?
