October 13, 2009
In an effort to beautify our city, Robert Price of The Vallarta Botanical Gardens, in conjunction with the City of Puerto Vallarta, are planting 5000 bougainvillea bushes from the International Airport to Mismaloya. Click HERE to learn more.
|If you missed the first of the 3 BINGO for Bougainvillea games at Bite me! Beach Club last Friday night, be sure to mark your calendars now for the October 16th & 23rd games.|
Showing their support for this huge undertaking, Tim Longpré of PVRPV – Puerto Vallarta Condo Rentals, Charlotte Semple and Carole Fast of Xocodiva Artisan Chocolates and Grant Hunermund of bite me! beach club hosted the first of 3 nights of Bingo for Bougainvillea last Friday night in the bite me! beach club seaside lounge.
Robert, who was in attendance, says he is hoping to create a festival in Puerto Vallarta on the same or a grander scale as the Washington Cherry Blossom festival. Kudos Robert, and thank you!
42 people packed the lounge and our guest caller, Juan Carlos Garcia from PVRPV, kept the evening moving along in great style. We raised $7770 pesos which broken down is 485 bushes or 11.5 plants per person.
There were many great prizes up for grabs, and this weeks lucky winners were:
• Game 1: Ann Boughn
• Game 2: William McFadden
• Game 3: Lynn Rogers
• Game 4: Leann Hingley
• Game 5: Sid Goodman
• Game 6: Tucker Lehman
• Game 7: Lynn Rogers again. Wow she was the lucky one.
• Game 8: Diane Tinsley
The 50/50 prize of $835 pesos went to Ann Boughn, who donated it back to the cause. Thanks Ann! Other great prizes went to Hailey Lockett, who won 1 year of free advertising on BanderasNews.com, Dave Friedman, who won a 60 second video commercial from SF Productions, and Darci Stronach, who won a Delux Package from Terra Noble Spa.
