As we all know PVRPV Puerto Vallarta Vacations has wrapped up their incredibly successful Summer Food Drive. They are thrilled that through many sources and your generous donations at our weekly Bingo, the food drive was able to do so much for so many. That being said however, below is a wish list from Pasitos De Luz.
These items are needed to ensure the health and welfare of the children they serve. Anyone who brings any of these items to BINGO will receive a free BINGO card. How's that for a deal, folks?
And if this isn΄t enough, stay tuned for 3 more Bingo night΄s to assist the Botanical Gardens with their effort to beautify Vallarta. They will be planting 5000 Buganvilia bushes from the airport to Mismaloya and they need our help. So on behalf of the committee was will be hosting Bingo Friday Oct 9, 16 and 23. Come on out and help with this terrific project.
Bite me! Beach Club is located on Los Muertos Beach, at the foot of Calle Abedul, directly south of Hotel Tropicana. For more information about the Mad Hatter Party, call (322) 223-1521 ext. 234. If you missed all the fun we had playing BINGO for Beans and Babies click HERE to learn more...
