The Puerto Vallarta Men's Chorus will sing at a benefit dinner for the gay-friendly Horizonte de Paz (Peaceful Horizon) Men's Residential Rehabilitation Center for Alcohol and Drug Abuse.
The Wednesday, March 20th, dinner begins at 7:00 pm at No Way José Restaurant and includes one drink (soft drink, margarita, or house wine), Aztec Soup (Tortilla Soup) and one entree, Chile en Nogada (beef, shrimp or veggie) or Pollo Xochimilco (spinach & cheese stuffed chicken breast with corn truffle in huitlacoche sauce).
Tickets are 300 pesos in advance or 350 pesos at the door. The dinner is expected to sell out, so buy your advance tickets at No Way José Restaurant, 5 de Febrero #260 (and Ignacio Vallarta), and Flowers To Go, Rodolfo Gómez #126 (and Olas Altas), both in the Romantic Zone.
The Puerto Vallarta Men's Chorus will sing an original humorous medley of "Ex-Pats in Paradise" about the challenges and joys of Puerto Vallarta for foreigners, and "Amor a la Méxicana."
The chorus, directed by Bob Bruneau of Seattle and Puerto Vallarta, sang its first major concert of "Sing Out Proud" in June last year, followed by a near sell-out holiday show "Alegría" at the Teatro Vallarta last December.
The mission of the chorus is to present beautiful, quality male choral music presented in both Spanish and English, by the gay Mexican and ex-pat communities to entertain, enlighten and unify our audience and members, using the power of this music to recognize the value of our gay community and our relationships, and to help build bridges of greater acceptance to our member's families, the city of Puerto Vallarta, and the country of Mexico.
The Horizonte de Paz Men's Residential Rehabilitation Center opened in 2010 in Ixtapa, Jalisco, as a safe haven for drug and alcohol abusers to receive support and help.
As the center does not receive money from the government, it relies on charitable donations and money from the clients and their families. The center helps the clients with a work program that will benefit them in recovery at the shelter and afterward. The center also provides physical and psychological support 24/7.
Your support at the March 20 benefit will help these men find solutions to their problems and become productive members of their families and society.
