Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Kelly Trainor, U.S. Consul in Puerto Vallarta, recently announced this year's International Altruism Festival is scheduled to be held on May 8, 2016 from 6-9 pm at the Marriott Casamagna Hotel. Last year's event was a huge success, raising $709,051 pesos for Banderas Bay area charities.
Puerto Vallarta is home to a variety of charities and non-profit organizations that offer everyone the opportunity to enhance the lives of those who are in need of help - and 20 of these non-profit charitable organizations will be offering information about their foundations at this year's Altruism Festival, including:

In addition to the charity information booths, loads of local restaurants will donate food for those attending to sample and several local performers will entertain the crowds. Don't miss this very upbeat, wonderful night of food, friendship and fun for just $400 pesos in advance or $500 pesos at the door, with all proceeds divided equally among the charities.
