Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - From beach vendors and four-legged animals to murals and landmarks, participating four-person teams will leave no clue unturned as they walk around Puerto Vallarta’s Old Town on Saturday afternoon, July 21st from 1-7 PM for the inaugural community-wide Scavenger Hunt to benefit Pasitos de Luz, a local organization that treats children with disabilities.
Pre- and post-hunt festivities will take place at Nacho Daddy Mex Tex Restaurant & Bar, located at 180 Basilio Badillo on Vallarta's south side. Team entry is $500 pesos. Individuals are also encouraged to participate, and will be assigned accordingly.
Event organizers, Tim Longpré of PVRPV; Lori Lorenzen of Rio Amapas Private Luxury Residences; and Charlotte Semple and Carole Fast of Xocodiva Artisan Chocolates, promise a fun day for all of the teams as they search key locations around town using their Smart Phones to document their progress.
Winning teams will be selected based on completion time, accumulated points, and various categories at the after-party. The championship team will receive a $5,000 peso cash prize, while other finalists and team goers vie for other prizes including travel getaways, dining vouchers, artwork, wine and more.
To register your TEAM, please send an email to tim(at)pvrpv.com, including all 4 team member's full names, email addresses and our team name. The number of participating teams is limited, so register yours as soon as possible. For more information you can also find the event on Facebook.
About Pasitos de Luz
Pasitos de Luz is a 7 am–7 pm rehabilitation center that provides FREE medical, educational, nutritional and well being services to 120 (60 on a daily basis, 60 rotating) children with severe disabilities (quadriplegic, Down syndrome, hunters syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, total and partial paralysis, sequelae of meningitis, hydrocephaly and muscular dystrophy.)
Because of the intensive assistance requirements of these special children, the cost for their care is higher than for most children in Mexico. Many of the children at Pasitos de Luz cannot feed themselves; sit, stand or move without help; speak or hear; and most, ranging in age from 1 year to 20 years, wear diapers.
100% of the funds raised at this event will go towards caring for our children. In addition to caring for our children, we also need to cover our operating costs (i.e., electricity, gas, water.) Our operations are entirely funded though donations from individuals or events such as this one. We’d like to take this opportunity to invite you to visit us. Our location is Exiquio Corona 545, Col. Bobadilla, Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico. Tel / Fax: + 52 (322) 299-3605 Email: pasitosdeluz(at)gmail.com.
