Season Ending Becas Breakfast at Coco's Kitchen

March 25, 2014

Becas Vallarta volunteers helping students at Los Mangos Library. Our goal is to raise enough money to keep them in school, eighth grade through university, until they reach their educational goals.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Now that the ball is over, we are planning a fun season finale Becas Breakfast at Coco's Kitchen on April 9, at 9:30 am. The tickets are the same reasonable $150 pesos and can be obtained from any Becas member, from me at phvicars(at) or (322) 223-1371 or at Coco's Kitchen.

Coco, always a magnificent hostess, is planning a great menu that starts out with fresh fruit juice or coffee, French Toast or a Spanish Omelette served with salad or beans, or Huevos Rancheros served with salad or beans and a choice of corn bread, toast or biscuit - the corn bread and biscuits are mouth watering home made! With those choices, there is something delicious for everyone.

We have an array of great prizes for the raffle, which is always the high point of the morning. At the raffle, called by the great MC, Gil Givens, Becas supporters can win meals at Vallarta's best restaurants and gifts from Vallarta's best businesses. Raffle tickets are, as usual, $100 pesos or three for $200 pesos.

Bring your pesos for the raffle and the Silent Auction that will feature some exciting items including a beautiful Talavera vase from Mundo Azulejos, a print by the late Stefan Lókós, an original Rodrigo Lepe painting, jewelry from Diamonds International, and much more.

Attendees at the 2014 Becas Ball met some of our university students, an impressive group who were hosts and hostesses and helpers and who acquitted themselves very well. They, and the rest of the almost 400 scholarship students are the reason for all of our activities. Our only goal is to raise enough money to keep them in school, eighth grade through university, until they reach their educational goals - be it doctor, lawyer or stay at home Mom or Dad.

Even though this is the last official fund-raiser for now, there are many ways to help educate this fine group of students. Please think of our foundation when honoring a friend or family for a special occasion by making a donation in their name. Many also use this method to honor loved ones who have passed. We send notices to the families of those so honored. And you can sponsor a scholarship - $160 USD for junior high, $500 USD for high school and $700 USD for university Contact me at phvicars(at) to initiate any of these methods of supporting the students.

As this season winds down, some of our loyal supporters have returned to their other homes, but those of you who are here, join us at the last of our breakfasts. Call me 223-1371 and come to the final Becas Breakfast of the season. See you there?

Note: Coco's Kitchen is located at Pulpito #122 on the South side of Vallarta.
