Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The 3rd Annual Duckaton Fundraising Party, an evening filled with fun and friendship in support of Puerto Vallarta's GLBT Community Center, SETAC, was held on February 29th on the Boana Torre Malibu poolside terrace.
This year's Duckaton was a smashing success with more than 100 attendees enjoying live entertainment, food & beverages, and watching and waiting for the "go-go boys" to swim after the 265 toy ducks in the pool and call out their number to see which of the fabulous prizes, donated by Puerto Vallarta businesses, they had won.
