The International Friendship Club of Puerto Vallarta will be hosting the festive fundraising evening, "Christmas in July" on Saturday, July 20, at The River Cafe.

Hand-carved oven-roasted turkey will be served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes, grilled vegetables, and served with a side of apple sage stuffing and cranberry mango chutney.

The dessert course of Pumpkin Spice Crème Brûlée, which is a homemade pumpkin spice custard baked and topped with caramelized sugar, will be accompanied by live entertainment and a mini fashion show with "seasonal fashions" from Carol's Boutique.

Donation tickets are 350 pesos per person and includes tax and tip. A vegetarian menu is also available.

If you bring a new children's toy or toiletry item, you will be entered in a special raffle.

As always, a portion of the proceeds go to fund Cleft Palate clinics and the many charities supported by the IFC.
