Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - On Sunday, October 29th, El Arrayán Mexican Restaurant owners Claudia Victoria R. & Carmen Porras E. will host a Pozole + LIVE Music Fiesta to support earthquake relief efforts in southern Oaxaca.
From 5:30 pm to 11 pm, Chef Diego Sánchez A. and his kitchen team will be cooking the traditional hearty soup Pozole with pork (or vegan option), and local musicians will be playing a repertoire of Mexican & Latin American music.
After the strong earthquakes of September 7th & 19th, and the following tropical storms that have badly hit our brothers in the area of Tehuantepec Isthmus, the regional "Community High School José Martí" has been turned into a help center for the town of San Francisco Ixhuatán, Oaxaca.
This school has been used most recently as a collection & distribution center for food items, medical supply, clothing & building materials; Dental & medical services; Psychological help for children & the elderly. People from the community, all the brave students, and the school's entire faculty have helped as a volunteer team during these very tough times.
