BECAS Vallarta Announces 2015-2016 Breakfast Dates

go to original
September 17, 2015

Since their inception, Becas Breakfasts have been raising money to fund the educations of Puerto Vallarta students of limited resources. The first event of the 2015-2016 season will be held November 18 at Vitea.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Becas Vallarta has just released dates and venues for their seasonal fund raising breakfasts, which are scheduled to take place at some of our destination's most prestigious restaurants.

The non-profit was started over 50 years ago by the late Bernice Starr who, along with others, envisioned a program through which funds could be raised to provide education for as many Puerto Vallarta students as possible.


Through the years, Becas Vallarta has allowed thousands of children and young adults to continue with their formal education. Many come from single family homes where the bread-winner makes only enough for the very basics of life. Those circumstances make it impossible for the children, no matter how bright and eager to learn, to continue their education past the mandated junior high.

At that point, Becas Vallarta has intervened, sponsoring students through junior high, high school, university, and even medical, engineering and law school.

The Becas Breakfasts allow seasoned members of their community to mingle with one another, and also to connect with new attendees looking to contribute to such an important cause. The breakfasts are $200 pesos per person (tip not included), and also include a raffles and prizes, with many gift certificates from local businesses.

The dates and venues follow. All tickets must be purchased in advance from Suzie Erikson (322) 221-5599, Mariel de Fregoso 221-0789, Terry Prill 221-5465 or Patti Bishop 222-3026. For more information, visit Becas Vallarta, A.C. online at BecasVallarta.com, or contact them via email at becasvallarta(at)gmail.com.
