Barbara Scott, Vice President of the Panama Help Line, sees a great need for the Coronado area beach community to have access to an ambulance for emergencies. Members of her safety advocacy group lament two recent deaths they feel could have been prevented with timely ambulance service. To reach their goal, they have decided to hold a yearly auction to raise funds and have enlisted the assistance of the Canadian Government, the Rotary Club in Toronto (Canada) and the Rotary Club in Coronado.
The group is seeking to purchase an ambulance which will be for the whole community, not just for members of the Panama Help Line as we incorrectly stated. There will be a reduction of rates charged for members. The going rate will be charged for other users.
The group will launch their fundraising campaign this Friday, June 12 at 7 p.m. at Sukha’s Bar in Coronado.
The auctions will take place live and online. The Online Auction launch is scheduled for Friday, June 12 at Sukha’s Bar at 7 p.m. The venue is on the right side on your way to the gates of Coronado next to the San Fernando Clinic. The auction will continue online until January 30 of next year, at which time a Mardi Gras-style live auction will be held.
The Panamá Help Line (originally Neighbors Helping Neighbors-NHN) is a membership-based safety support group headquartered in the interior of Panama whose coverage area extends from Chamé in the east, to Penonomé in the west, including the communities of Altos Del Maria and El Valle.
