The Scripps 7th Annual M.O.S.T. Mariachi Festival took place June 2 at Humphreys Concerts by the Bay. A record-breaking 460 people attended the Mariachi Festival, which raised nearly $300,000 for the Mercy Outreach Surgical Team (M.O.S.T.), a group of physicians, nurses, and volunteers who donate their time and expertise to provide life-changing surgeries to children in need throughout Mexico.
Guests celebrated M.O.S.T.'s more than 30 years of work, while enjoying music by Mariachi Garibaldi and Grammy-award winning Mariachi Los Camperos. A live auction raised more than $50,000 with items that included a Lake Tahoe vacation package, a trip to Montage Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico and a carne asada fiesta.
Larry McCarthy, MD, honored Patricia Robinson, co-founder of M.O.S.T. and Rosario Berenice Jacobo-Hernandez, a M.O.S.T. patient, was a special guest speaker. To make a donation or learn more about M.O.S.T., please visit www.Scripps.org/mercymost.
