Sixth Annual 'Duckaton' Fundraiser for SETAC Center

February 10, 2015

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Start the countdown... and get ready for an unforgettable evening of fun, food and friendship at the Sixth Annual 'Duckaton' Fundraiser for SETAC. You'll enjoy live music and entertainment, free food, open bar, and great prizes - all for a good cause!

Scheduled to take place on the pool side terrace of condo-hotel Boana Torre Malibu on Wednesday, February 25 from 7-11 pm, the SETAC 'Duckaton' Fundraiser keeps getting bigger and better every year. Seems everyone comes out to enjoy the festivities - which this year include a Mariachi Band, a DJ for dancing, entertainment staged by various local artists, and food provided by some of Vallarta's finest restaurants - while anxiously waiting for the "swimming boys" to collect the toy ducks in the pool so they can find out which of the fabulous prizes, donated by generous members of the business community, they have won.

Tickets for the 2015 Duckaton are available at SETAC Your Community Center for a donation of $350 pesos in advance or $450 at the door on the day of the event.

All Are Welcome!
