|A Successful Season of Make a Wish Tours|
Roberta Valdez - PVNN
I would like to publicly thank everyone that participated this season in the Alegre Events & Tours trips that benefited Make a Wish Mexico to help grant wishes from terminally ill children, not just from Puerto Vallarta but nationwide in Mexico.
|If you'd like to adopt a wish, make a donation or receive Make a Wish Mexico volunteer information, please call 52 (322) 222-9111 or visit MakeaWishMexico.org.mx.|
It is with this participation and support from all that participated in the fantastic tours we offered this past season that this was able to be accomplished.
From granting personally a wish to Ricardo on our Mexico City/Taxco/Puebla Tour (where there was not a dry eye to be had) to any future ones, our sincere appreciation and special thanks go out to everyone of you that made it happen.
The participants were some of the most fantastic people I have met and enjoyed traveling with, plus, I'm happy to say that they also made life-long friends while on the trips.
It was our pleasure to show everyone the hidden treasures of Mexico and experience the different traditions of the various areas of Mexico besides Puerto Vallarta.
We will have pleasant memories from the "SHOP TILL YOU DROP" Tonala tour we offered where it was such fun and amazing to watch everyone buying everything they needed (and some things they did not need) to furnish their homes, along with beautiful artwork and fun personal items.
Then there was the Guanajuato/Dolores Hidalgo/San Miguel Tour, stopping in Leon for more shopping and lunch... WOW! now that was a truly fun and happy experience.
And the Morelia/Patzcuaro tour... What a beautiful city Morelia is and it was such fun watching the "Old Man Dance" in Patzcuaro's quaint plaza.
Please look for our regular Tours plus new upcoming FANTASTIC Tours dates, that we will be offering for the coming season. Our goal is continue to offer tours at a reasonable and affordable cost.
If anyone would like to have an advance preview of next season's tours, or if you would like to be added to our mailing list, you may contact me at rvadez714(at)hotmail.com.

Last but not least, I would also like to thank the various publications for their generosity in publishing information and articles about our trips. We could not have accomplished our goal of granting wishes without their support and assistance, which is very much and sincerely appreciated.
May all of you who participated in this year's trips always remember the happy times and fun we had. We hope you have fond memories and are proud that you were part of making life a bit happier for the Mexican children who need it most. We look forward to having you on our future tours and look forward to the pleasure of enjoying your company again.
