Local restaurant owner JD Toews from Canada and visiting volunteer April Federer from DE, USA, have paired up to host a fundraiser benefiting the children living at the Refugio Infantil Santa Esperanza orphanage, also known as RISE (Children's Shelter of Hope).

The fundraising event will be held on Friday, April 19, at JD's BBQ Smokehouse at 283 Basilio Badillo, in Old Town Puerto Vallarta. Come by any time throughout the day for some delicious food, whether you enjoy pulled pork, wings, ribs, pizza, etc.

JD will be donating 50% of the day's proceeds to the orphanage.

Even if you don't come hungry, stop by to meet some of these special children.

Around 2 pm, the children from RISE get to come to JD's for free pizza! They will leave with full stomachs and smiling faces.

A table will be set up for further donations in the restaurant as well.

Some information about the children...

There are currently 49 children in total living at the orphanage, from babies up until age 14. They were turned over by a Mexican government organization that protects the rights of children. They were abused, neglected, or abandoned, which led to their placement at RISE.

As reunification with their families is always the goal, this is not always possible. Unfortunately, most of these children spend the majority of their younger years at the shelter.

RISE is a non-profit organization. The government merely assists in caring for these children or maintaining the orphanage. It is primarily run and supported by donations and fundraising events.

Monetary donations are always needed and greatly appreciated. If you would like to make a financial or item donation, or even if you would like to volunteer, please visit RISE.

Every single bit of assistance helps, whether it be big or small.

For more information about this fundraiser or how else you can help, you may e-mail the event coordinator at aprilfed@gmail.com.
