This Thursday, September 2, 2010 the Outback Becas Vallarta Dinner will once again showcase the incredible support the businesses and citizens of Puerto Vallarta give to Becas Vallarta Scholarship Foundation.

No matter the very slow economy, the recent adverse publicity or any other negative - Vallartenses are in agreement that education is the key to a better Puerto Vallarta, to a better Mexico and to a better world. Thus they support generously this foundation which is celebrating 50 years of giving scholarships to local young people of great ability and little economic resources.

Not only is the sponsoring restaurant, Outback Steakhouse, underwriting the entire event that begins at 8:00 pm at their unique Restaurante at Blvd. Francisco Medina Ascencio 4690, but more than 20 other businesses have donated gifts and gift certificates for our raffle and silent auction.

Just look at the list of donors who, month after month, year after year, give so generously to fund raising events for Becas Vallarta. You will have an opportunity to buy raffle tickets at the dinner to win one of these fabulous prizes, bid on the silent auction and have a chance for a door prize just by being there. I hope you will decide, as I do, where to shop, eat and recreate on the basis of this incredible support of Becas Vallarta.

On the raffle you may win a month’s membership at the Acqua Spa worth $800 pesos or one of two private classes of Pilates with Maestro Marcelo Mico with a value of $450 pesos each. You might be sailing across rivers and mountains at Los Veranos Canopy Tour that has donated for your pleasure a canopy tour for 4 people with a value of $316 USD.

If you love to eat in good restaurants, you are in for a treat as the raffle will include meals at Andales, Coco’s Kitchen, La Palapa Restaurant, No Way Jose, and the River Café. Galeria June Rosen Lopez has donated lovely silver earrings with a value of $800 pesos, Cassandra Shaw Jewelry donated a unique pure silk men’s tie with a value of $500 pesos, as well as a coupon good for $200 pesos off on anything in the store. A Becas supporter donated 3 exquisite pieces of jewelry with a value of $500 pesos each: an amber and onyx necklace, a long onyx necklace and a dainty pearl necklace with matching earrings. Vallarta Botanical Gardens donated an exotic plant to grace your home.

And there are three getaways which will be featured on the Silent Auction: 2 night mini-vacation for 2 at Casa Isabel high above Puerto Vallarta with a value of $1000 pesos, 2 nights for 2 at the fabulous Hacienda Jalisco in San Sebastian with breakfast with a value of $1100 pesos and 2 nights at Casa Obelisco in San Pancho Bed and Breakfast for 2 people with a value $5,850 pesos. And just for coming there will be door prizes donated by El Coyul.

We are limited to selling 100 tickets and only have a few left. So please call me at (322) 223-1371 or 044-322-182-0215 or email me at phvicars(at) You won’t want to miss this gala event or the opportunity to help a young girl or boy complete the education she or he so fervently want and deserve.

Call me. Ya hear!
