Dec. 7 'Illumination II' Event to Support Pasitos de Luz

November 8, 2018

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Do you enjoy great food, fantastic sunsets, first class entertainment and amazing art? Are you interested in helping children with disabilities? We have the perfect event for you! Join us at Casa Karma on Friday, December 7, 2018, from 6 to 10 pm for the second annual Pasitos de Luz Illumination Dinner, Show and Art Auction.

Watching the sun as it sets across Banderas Bay from the amazing Casa Karma venue is always an exhilarating and special moment - and this fabulous event with a cause will make it even more enjoyable! We will be lighting up the evening with great food, fantastic musicians and some amazing art available in the silent auction.

The evening will begin with a welcome drink and an amazing sunset! This will be followed by a Pre-dinner performance by Flamenco guitarist Esau Galvin Santos.

The Dinner will be prepared by top chefs from some of Puerto Vallarta's finest restaurants: Barrio Bistro, Tintoque and De Cantaro, and chefs Memo Wulff from Barrio Bistro and Oliver Applegate from De Cantaro, will be on site to prepare your three-course meal, which will be complemented by two complimentary bottles of wine per table.

The Show will feature world class talent Paul Fracassi, a former finalist on Canadian Idol who performs regularly at Act II Entertainment, who will illuminate the evening! Paul's brilliant tributes to legendary singers, such as Elvis, Frankie Valli, Frank Sinatra and many more, are guaranteed to leave you wanting more.

The Silent Art Auction will feature paintings, photography, wood work, sculptures, and special dolls that represent a wide variety of diverse populations. These dolls will also be available for purchase, giving you an opportunity to mark some kids off of your Christmas gift shopping list, or help some of our Pasitos children have a great Christmas season by donating a doll to our kids!

Tickets to the Illumination II Dinner & Art Auction cost just $1700 pesos, with all proceeds going to the Pasitos de Luz children at Casa Connor. Pasitos is a registered non-profit charity that provides a lifeline for more than 112 families with a goal of reaching 200 families by 2020. The children we serve come largely from impoverished families and suffer from acute physical and/or psychological illnesses. We offer a large range of services free of charge, including physical therapy, psychological care, nutrition and wellness, education programs and so much more.

You can become a part of this by supporting our events. Join us at a Casa Karma on December 7th for an evening you won't soon forget. Many of last year's guests cited Illumination as the best event they ever attended in Puerto Vallarta, and this is being proven by requests for tickets coming in quickly. Get your tickets now by contacting me, Barb Bremner, at condo211(at), or (322) 223-0916 and be prepared for an event to remember!
