|How to Fill Your Spirit and Your Stomach and Make the World a Better Place|
Polly G. Vicars - PVNN
There are "how to" books on everything from "How to Lose 10 pounds in 10 days" to "How to Become an Overnight Millionaire" and probably most don't really work. But I guarantee this "How to" and it will be 'Oh So Easy!'
|For tickets to the January 22nd La Palapa Breakfast or the February 26th Becas Breakfast at Le Bistro, call: Conchas Chinas - Buri Gray at 221-528; Old Town - Polly Vicars at 223-1371 or Margi Tolton at 223-1835; Marina - Mariel Fregoso 221-0789.|
Your part is to buy an advance $150 peso ticket to Becas Vallarta's fund-raising breakfast for January 22 at the prestigious Restaurant La Palapa and arrive at 9:30 am. Then while 'filling your stomach' with delicious breakfasts prepared by gourmet chefs and served by smiling, courteous and efficient waiters, buy some raffle tickets for dinners in fine restaurants, jewelry, stays at Boutique Hotels, divine chocolates, pewter and glass wares and a few surprises all donated by the wonderful Vallarta business people. Now how easy is that?
And how better to fill ones spirit than to share the largess we have that enables us to live or vacation in this paradise by the sea? And who better to share with than the ambitious and bright, but severely economically challenged, 250 or so Vallarta girls and boys?
Your pesos will fund yearly stipends of $450 USD to senior high and $600 USD to university scholarship students; uniforms, school and gym shoes, calculators, dictionaries, paper and pens to junior high scholarship students.
That really fills my spirit and puts a smile on my face and will yours as well, as we in Becas Vallarta have a strong conviction that education of the populous is the first step in ridding this old world of some of its many woes.
Certainly, the owners of the restaurants who are participating in our monthly fund-raising breakfasts and the businesses that are contributing the raffle items must believe that as they regularly go all out to make the events memorable!
Our thanks to Vitae and La Hacienda who hosted the first two breakfasts, and of course to La Palapa for this one and to Le Bistro which will be hosting the February 26 event.
