In early 2006, Tom Sibley, a member of the West Michigan Affiliates, visited Northern Nicaragua including several days In Matagalpa City where he met Maryknoll Affiliate, Kitty Madden. He learned of her work with Casa Materna, a program serving rural Nicaraguan woman with high risk pregnancies. Upon returning to West Michigan Tom a member of a "loosley defined group of ROMEO'S (Retired Old Men Eating Out) asked his affiliate partners to participate in the first ROMEO Charity Auction held at a friends Coffee Shop in Hudsonville, Michigan. The Auction (one of the ROMEO'S is an auctioneer) has continued and this year netted $1742 for five charities including $600 for the Affiliate's designated charity Casa Materna.
