La Cruz Benefit for Wayland May 23rd

Benefit for Wayland – Philo’s on May 23rd, 2014

For those of you who have not yet heard about Wayland Combe-Wright, owner of Octopus’s Garden in La Cruz, he fell 2 stories from the roof, and another 3 meters to the property next door, and has sustained an injury to his neck. The friends of Wayland and the La Cruz community have come together to put on a benefit to raise funds to help with the high medical costs. He is currently in the Hospital in Guadalajara, and on his way home soon! His surgery went well, and he is improving daily. He is always helping others – now is our chance to help him.

For current information on his healing progress, you may check his blog at CaringBridge.Org for current information on his healing progress. Please follow this link, or search for ‘Wayland Combe-Wright’ on the Caring Bridge Website. You may leave an inspirational message there.
(Please DO NOT donate money on the Caring Bridge website as the monies will not go directly to Wayland.)

If you wish to donate monies directly to help cover medical expenses, Wayland’s wife Aruna and his daughter Kaerolik have a Paypal account for that purpose. The Paypal account name is Kaerolik Combe-Wright. You can type in her email ( and money amount. (please do not send emails) Simply click in the link below, or go to and clink on Send. There will also be cash donations accepted at the Wayland benefit. Thank you so much, on behalf of Wayland.
