You are invited to join the International Friendship Club (IFC) on Tuesday, the 13th of November, at the River Café at 1:00 pm for lunch and their first general meeting of the new season.

Cost of the tickets will be 200 pesos in advance or 250 pesos at the door, space permitting. The menu will be a choice of beef fajitas, Swiss enchiladas or a vegetarian crêpe. There will be chips and salsa for the table and agua fresca. Your tip is included in the price of the ticket. You need not be a member to attend. Buy your tickets today!

The International Friendship Club is one of the oldest charitable organizations in Vallarta having formed in 1985.

Their primary charitable mission and the one most visible to the public is their long standing Cleft Palate Program (CPP). The IFC brings talented surgeons from Guadalajara four times each year to assess the children in the program and perform surgeries at the new CMQ Premier Hospital.

The IFC program not only closes the lip and palate but also includes speech therapy, orthodontia and plastic surgery. There are usually close to 200 children from birth to age 18 in the program.

In addition, the IFC acts as a United Way, offering many other types of assistance to those in need.

The IFC is able to provide these services through their home tours, offered every Wednesday and Thursday beginning on November 14, and from your membership dues.

The IFC has over 500 members who support their mission and benefit from the many activities they sponsor including weekly Spanish lessons, Bridge, lecture series, restaurant discounts and a Friday cocktail hour, to name a few. Whether you want to participate in these activities or just want to help support a great cause, the IFC hopes you will consider membership this year.

Tickets for the November 13th luncheon can be purchased at the IFC Clubhouse between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm, Monday to Friday.

The IFC Clubhouse is conveniently located at the Northeast corner of the Rio Cuale Bridge above the HSBC Bank.

For more information, you can visit the IFC website or call (322) 222-5466.
