Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Founded by a wonderful lady named Cheryl Schrean in 2011, Cheryl's Shoebox started out as an organization with the 'sole' focus of collecting and distributing shoes to the children, families and individuals in need throughout Puerto Vallarta and surrounding communities.
Though, sadly, Cheryl is no longer with us, in her memory, today Cheryl's Shoebox continues to flourish, collecting hundreds of shoes a year from visitors around the world.
Realizing that much more could be done for local families in need, over the past couple of years, Cheryl's volunteers have expanded their efforts and are now working with schools in low income areas to provide not only school shoes, but also educational supplies and support for local educators.
To raise funds for school shoes and supplies for local primary and secondary students and after-school programs in Colonias Progresso, Lomas de Enmedio and El Satrillo, Cheryl's Shoebox is hosting their 2nd Annual Summer Bash on August 6th, 2017 at Babel Bar on the Isla Rio Cuale.
Come enjoy a fun-filled afternoon with live music by Gloria and Da Crew and The Zippers and picnic style games with your favorite restaurants, bars and shops competing for the title of Cheryl's Shoebox Summer Bash Champions!
Individuals and Businesses are invited to enter a team of 4 to compete for the Cheryl's Shoebox 1st Place Traveling Trophy. If you'd like to sponsor a team, click HERE to download the team sponsorship form.
