The New Mexico Health Secretary has issued a public health order temporarily prohibiting mass gatherings in New Mexico that brings together one hundred or more people in a single room. As a result, El Ranchito de los Ninos is being required to postpone our Charity Cruise XIX, Sun, Sand and Surf.

We are working diligently with Isleta Resort and Casino to find an alternate date in June/July 2020 and as they say, the show must go on. All sponsorships, in kind donations and raffle and auction items will be reserved for the new date.

Please check our website or social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) for further updates.

The health and safety of our attendees and our community are of the utmost importance to us and we appreciate everyone’s generosity, patience and understanding during this time of uncertainty.

Amy Kindrick, Executive Director
