|Don't miss Becas Vallarta’s Holiday Happening at Avalon on December 2 from 6 to 9 pm.|
Then visualize the most incredible views of Vallarta and the beautiful Bahia de Banderas. Sound good?
You can enjoy this experience on December 2 at Becas Vallarta’s Holiday Happening at Avalon high above the city. But there will be more. Becados (scholarship students) from our local universities will host the event and will conduct tours of three of the most interesting and beautiful condos in this unique complex.
The first condo on tour features the designs of Odette Robinson on In-Decor, including a free form glass wall in the kitchen and a custom range hood with wood trim on stainless steel. The second is one of very few combined units at Avalon. The owner designed the condo to create generously proportioned open living spaces with a feeling of floating and separating private quarters from guest rooms.
The third condo of the tour is a Penthouse. Mateo Alvarez, of Equilibrio in Puerto Vallarta, designed the interiors of this two-story penthouse which features incomparable art by José Moreno, Bolivia, Portal Pasten, Querétaro, and Edgar Martínez, Marta Gilbert, Claudia Ramos, Juan Pablo and Ada Colorina, Puerto Vallarta.
There are sculptures and a fountain by Puerto Vallarta and Guadalajara’s Sergio Bustamante. The outdoor living space features an imaginative wall by Pedro Sauvignon, Valle de Bravo, Mexico and many more incredible pieces of art. The owner quipped that "the small duck in the plunge pool is not attributed to any known artist."
From 6 to 9 pm, small groups will continuously tour the condos of their choice. Becados will be in each condo to be sure that your tours are pleasant experiences. Return to the Sky Bar for more refreshments and entertainment at any time. Tickets for this unparalleled excursion are only $50 USD or $600 pesos and can be bought from any Becas member as well as in the lobby of Avalon from the lovely Monica.
If you drive up, go on Highway 200 (Insurgentes) south. One kilometer south past the Pemex station, turn left onto Hortensia. Follow Hortensia to the fork in the road where you should take the right fork onto Calle Gardenias. Follow the road up to the two white Avalon Towers. We will have limited valet parking, so why not do as Husband and I will do - go by taxi?
This school year Becas Vallarta is funding scholarships for 376 local girls and boys of great ability and limited financial resources - the most ever. To sustain this level of funding requires that we volunteers raise about $200,000 USD each year. Your attendance at this event will help us reach that amount.
Remember, we promise each Becado if she or he continues to meet all of our criteria, we will continue funding his or her education to reach their goal, whether it be finishing high school or university. So yearly fund raising is essential for this organization that has no paid staff, no office, no equipment - only dedicated, hard working volunteers.
