The Details: Becas is an old and respected charity in Puerto Vallarta and has helped thousands of young people get educations, using a scholarship program that is designed to be functional and accountable. Information about the charity is available at BecasVallarta.com either directly or via Google. This is a new website; your search might also lead you to the America Mexico Foundation, the information is ok, just a little older. If you cannot get to the tournament, but would like to donate to Becas you can contact Becas via email or mail a check, directions for both are available on the website under "giving."
Tax receipts are available for either USA or Mexican residents, Canadian residents are encouraged to donate, but for now there is no tax receipt available. You can also contact either Barrie Page at 322-110-2666 (Mexican cell phone) or panorama(at)intergama.net or Alex Whiteside at 322-117-3870 (Mexican cell phone) or alex(at)derekalexandergroup.com. They are organizing the tournament itself and can help you make it easy. A list of donors will be available at the tournament.
Currently Becas cannot process credit cards. If you are Canadian and want to make a donation via credit card, we can use Derek Alexander group in Calgary to process a credit card and they will provide cash to Becas in Puerto Vallarta.Don Eastcott: Don, well known in Calgary and Edmonton for his prowess on the ice and later as the host with the most at some of Calgary's best clubs, became one of Puerto Vallarta's true characters. His 'No Name Bar and Grill' was the destination for fun, sports and, of course, the best damn ribs in town. "Hockey night in Puerto Vallarta" will never be the same. Don was a long-time supporter of Becas; sponsoring the golf tournament, monthly breakfasts and the annual ball. When Becas was approached to combine the Becas tournament with a memorial tournament for Don it was a perfect fit.
Thank you all for supporting a very worthy cause.
