The classic Fox-Einstien combination gave its final performance of the year on November 11th at Café Roma here in Puerto Vallarta in aid of the kids at Feed the Children Vallarta's School of Champions program. Followers of the duo did not go away disappointed; not only did they put on a great show but they raised an impressive sum of money towards an excellent cause.
|Café Roma Kids North American Tour 2009 a huge success.|
Over one hundred guests were present to enjoy Fox and Einstien's antics along with ten children from the School of Champions who enchanted everyone there and had a fantastic time. What's more, more than thirty prizes worth in excess of $100,000 pesos were won by those who bought tickets for the event. This concludes the incredibly successful Café Roma Kids North American Tour, which this year featured three venues across the continent and has raised enough money to keep the School of Champions operating for half of the school year.
Fox and Einstein look forward to seeing you for more family fundraising fun next year...
