Oh, what a night!! On Saturday, February 2nd the community indeed came together for the Celebración Para Los Niños event to support some children in need in Puerto Vallarta. The new indoor venue, the Gran Salon of the SECRET Vallarta Bay/ NOW Amber was stunning! The food, provided by many of the finest local restaurants, was plentiful and magnificent. The live entertainment, including Los Bambinos, pianist Salvatore Rodriguez, Ballet Folklorico Xiutla, and, of course, some of the children from RISE, offered something wonderful for everyone. Many happy bidders took home amazing items donated by local shops or individuals, and purchased at the Live Auction or Silent Auction. And, most importantly ALL of the money raised will help the children at Refugio Infantil Santa Esperanza (RISE), a shelter for children in PV, and Sendero de Esperanza y Amor, a new shelter for older children opening later this month in PV.
Thank you, thank you to the committee and volunteers who worked tirelessly to put together this event. Thanks also to Abraham Solares for these photos. And, thank you also to all who were able to attend and enjoy this special evening. We hope to see you all again next year.
