What started off as the annual Crab Race organized by Baoase, turned into a astonishing afternoon in paradise! Every year, we organize the iconic Crab Race on the 1st of January to celebrate the year opening with Champagne and oliebollen for our beloved guests. Guests are invited to buy their favorite crab for the race, where all money raised is donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities Curaçao.

This year, we sold almost 100 crabs, raising nearly USD 6.000 in this event that took place on their beach. Hereafter to raise additional funds, the Director of Sales and Marketing, Sue-Anne Klabèr, surprised the guests by auctioning 2 nights in Beachfront Pool Suites raising an additional USD 5.000. After the winners were crowned and all guests were thanked for their contribution to RMHC and their local community, the General Manger, Thijs van der Valk made a donation on behalf of the van der Valk family, raising the amount once more.

Moved by the generosity and the values ROHC a generous local family staying at Baoase made a beautiful donation which started a chain reaction with donations being made by 5 additional families staying at Baoase, to a amazing amount of USD 50.000 to Ronald McDonald House Charities Curaçao.

We are more than thankful for our generous guests and being able to contribute to an amazing start of 2023 for RMHC.
