On Saturday May 8th, PEACE and SPCA de PV Reach for the Stars, a fundraiser to equally benefit PEACE free spay/neuter clinics in Puerto Vallarta and the SPCA de PV, will be held at the gorgeous Hacienda Palo Maria on the beach.
A map to Hacienda Palo Maria can be found on the HaciendaPaloMaria.com website.
The evening begins at 6:30 pm and includes cocktails accompanied by Mariachi la Joya de Mexico; entertainment; a four course gourmet dinner serenaded by Guadalajara ballad singer Cheko Carrillo; an open bar; a live auction and dancing to Los Huaracheros de Cuba, a band that plays regularly at Four Seasons Resort in Punta Mita.
Tickets cost $120 USD or $1500 pesos per person and are available at Hacienda San Angel and Cassandra Shaw Jewelry on Basilio Badillo. Tables are for ten people if you would like to start organizing one.
Some of the great live auction items include:
Two nights at Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita
Two nights, including all meals, at Haramara Retreat in Sayulita
Dinner for six at Hacienda San Angel
Lunch and an afternoon for four at Villa Mandarinas in Mismaloya
Three nights for up to four people in a suite at Casa Encantada in Patzcuaro
Note: The owners of Casa Encantada, Cynthia and Victoria, wrote to say that "their passion is sterilization clinics." They started one up in Patzcuaro a few years ago and need financial help. Please try to help if you visit.
