2015 Arts for the Turtles Fundraiser in Nuevo Vallarta

February 19, 2015

Don't miss the 2015 Arts for the Turtles fundraiser on Wednesday, February 25th from 11 am to 2:00 pm at Bahía del Sol in Nuevo Vallarta. Event proceeds will support the Nuevo Vallarta Sea Turtle Preserve.

Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico - Since 2004 a group of artists and their friends have helped the non profit AMA Mexico to put on an annual fundraiser known as "Arts for The Turtles." Proceeds from the event support the work of the Nuevo Vallarta Turtle Preserve, which is dedicated to saving the sea turtles of Banderas Bay. Hosted by Bahia del Sol, the Preserve is the largest in the State of Nayarit.

This year's event will be held on Wednesday, February 25th from 11 am to 2:00 pm at Bahia del Sol in Nuevo Vallarta, where you will find gifts galore, including metal art and sculpture, acrylic and watercolor paintings, art cards, jewelry, "Tortuga" t-shirts and caps, turtle art calendars, turtle books for children, and much more. Admission is free.

You can also enjoy gourmet foods, a bake sale, a flea market, live and silent auctions, a raffle drawing and a special lunch at the Bahia del Sol's Il Corsaro Restaurant, with proceeds benefitting the Nuevo Vallarta Sea Turtle Preserve.

From 5-8 pm Il Corsaro Restaurant will host the 'Tortuga Fiesta,' where you'll enjoy a delicious dinner with Sangria, live and silent auctions, a raffle drawing and more. Tickets cost $350 pesos, with proceeds benefitting the Nuevo Vallarta Sea Turtle Preserve.

In past years, the money raised at these events has provided salaries for the Preserve's resident marine biologists and student interns, the purchase of All Terrain Vehicles used to collect nests from the beach between Mayan Palace and Bucerias, gasoline, maintenance and repairs to the ATVs, construction of incubation corrals and information centers, and the development and dissemination of educational materials throughout Nayarit. Arts for The Turtles also sponsors research projects on the impact of tourism on the sea turtles that nest on Nuevo Vallarta's beaches.

Bahía del Sol is located about 1/2 mile north of the Paradise Village Resort Complex, at Paseo Cocoteros and Retorno Cozumel in Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit.
