Aurora De La Torre - Puerto Vallarta Rotary Club Sur
November 28, 2016

Dear friends and guests who are visiting in Puerto Vallarta.

Please join us in celebrating 100 years of service by the Rotary Foundation, the endowment fund for Rotary International, with the purpose of fighting hunger in Puerto Vallarta.

Congratulations to the Puerto Vallarta Sur Rotary Club which for over 30 years, has provided humanitarian service in and around Puerto Vallarta through many projects to provide clean water, fight disease, build schools, encourge students to stay in school with scholarships for approximate 500 students per year in recent years, and support eye surgeries for needy seniors and children, Boca de Tomatlan Health Clinic, among many other projects.

In addition, for over 20 years the Puerto Vallarta Sur Rotary Club has worked, along with more than 30,000 other Rotary Clubs around the world in the historic quest to eradicate polio worldwide. At this time, all countries in the world, except three, have been declared polio free thanks to the work of Rotary International and its partners.

Now the Puerto Vallarta Sur Rotary Club is targeting hunger in Puerto Vallarta, by creating a food bank to feed families who are food insecure. Most of all we want to provide a meal for the children who go to school on an empty stomach. Hungry children are often ill, can't stay awake and can't focus on learning.

The fundraiser for our Food Bank Project will take place at The River Cafe on Wednesday, December 14 at 9:00 am.

Rotory motto in English is "Service Above Self." The motto in Spanish ("Dar de si antes de pensar en si") translates roughly into "give of yourself before thinking of yourself."

In this Centennial year at the Rotary Foundation, we wish to celebrate with all the wonderful people who think of others before they think of themselves by supporting the food bank project.

Donation tickets per person are 285 pesos or $15 USD.

You are invited to buy a kilo of love by donating  a kilo (or more) of non-perishable food, rice, beans, sugar cooking oil,.... or bring an extra 200 pesos, which will buy more than 10 kilos of rice, beans
or sugar at the humanitarian rate provided by our supplier.

Rotary, A worldwide network of inspired individuals who translate their passion into relevant social causes to change lives in communities...Rotary Serving Humanity!

River Café is located at Isla Rio Cuale #4 on the River Walk at the Vallarta Street Bridge.
