Oktoberfest Fundraiser Supports Children With Cancer in Puerto Vallarta

Dennis Rike - Banderas Bay American Legion Post #14
October 25, 2013

Good Food, Good Deeds, Good Times...

The American Legion and Navy League have joined the Vallarta Women's Association (AsociaciónFemenilVallartense) in supporting the Children's Cancer Center by holding a traditional Oktoberfest hosted by Hacienda Alemana on November the 13th.

The American Legion and the Navy League of Puerto Vallarta have become very important supporters of a wide variety of projects, organizations, and causes around the Banderas Bay area. Whether the support is in the form of monetary or material donations, advice, support and PR, or building expertise and labor, these adopted "PataSaladas" of the Puerto Vallarta community have truly shown their love and commitment to make our Bay a better place for everyone who lives here.

In the spirit of this commitment, and through the invitation of the Vallarta Women's Association, the American Legion and the Navy League have recently decided to add the regional Children's Cancer Center (CANICA for their acronym in Spanish) to the growing list of charities they support.

CANICA is a non-profit founded in 2003 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, to create a support and advice network for families with children with cancer. CANICA is part of the International Confederation of Childhood Cancer Parent Organizations (ICCCPO), and has helped countless families in the state of Jalisco with programs that give them the tools to improve their quality of life, and to have the knowledge and abilities to make the best decisions in the treatment of their children. Although CANICA is based in Guadalajara, the Vallarta Women's Association has taken on the task of integrating children with cancer and their families of Puerto Vallarta into CANICA's services.

As you can see, all the organizations involved are highly deserving of our help and support, and what a better way to do it than to spend some time recreating the traditional Oktoberfest atmosphere right here in Puerto Vallarta.

The event will be held at Hacienda Alemana in Old Town Vallarta at Basilio Badillo #378, on Wednesday, November 13th, from 6:00 until 10:30 pm.

The donation for this event is 400 pesos and includes an all you can eat buffet and beer. If you would like to contribute a little bit more, please bring a gift to be auctioned off during the night. The proceeds of this evening will be distributed by the Navy League of Vallarta A.C. for Community Relations projects and the Children's Cancer Screening Center playground.

Tickets can be bought at Carol's Boutique and Steve's Sports Bar (both on Basilio Badillo in Old Town Vallarta); through Dennis Rike of Banderas Bay American Legion Post 14 by cellular at (322) 138-8891 or by email at; Carol Smith (322-113-0073 for inquiries in spanish); or any American Legion/Navy League member. For more information you can contact Dennis Rike.

Join the fun while supporting a great cause.
