Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Realtor Rosamaria Acuna hosts Fiesta Mexicana to benefit kids with cancer



With delicious Mexican cuisine from the Bazaar del Mundo family of restaurants and fine tequila tastings from Tequila Fortaleza, this year’s Fiesta Mexicana hosted by Rosamaria Acuña of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties promises to surpass all expectations. Acuña is combining the event, which will be held at the Hall of Champions in Balboa Park on Nov. 8, 2014, with the Friends of Scott Foundation’s Holidays with Hope/Viva Los Ninos fundraiser honoring Childhood Cancer Awareness month.

A silent auction will be held to support the Friends of Scott Foundation’s mission to help children with cancer and their families. There will also be live Mariachi music from Mariachi Garibaldi, with director Jeff Nevin, a folkloric performance, dancing, an inspirational speaker, and a presentation of the Scotty Delgadillo scholarship awards.

“We are excited to have Alex Montoya, a writer and manager of Latino affairs for the San Diego Padres, serving as emcee for the event,” said Acuña, who is in her eighth year hosting events for the foundation. “With tickets available for $100, or $75 with the purchase of a table of 10, this will be a great opportunity to help children with cancer while providing your company or family with an unforgettable holiday party.”

A residential Realtor for the past 25 years, Acuña has earned prestigious awards for her sales production. Her service to her clients earned her San Diego Magazine’s “Five Star Real Estate Agents” award; her service to the community earned her the Friends of Scott Foundation’s Scotty D. Kindness award, National Association of Realtors’ Good Neighbor Realtor award, and the Point Loma Association of Realtors’ Light House award.

Acuña is fluent in Spanish and specializes in working with selective clientele from both the U.S. and overseas. She holds the Certified Residential Specialist designation and the Graduate, Real Estate Institute designation.
