You're Invited to Enjoy the International Friendship Club Open House

Janie Albright Blank - International Friendship Club
January 4, 2014

Don't miss the fun at the first big Open House of 2014! The International Friendship Club (IFC) will host its 3rd annual Open House at the newly renovated clubhouse and pleasant outdoor terrace on Tuesday evening, January 14, 2014 from 6:00 - 8:00 pm.

This party is open to IFC members, friends, visitors, and anyone interested in the charitable goals and social activities conducted through this longtime Vallarta organization, which is a registered charity in Mexico.

There will be free appetizers and tickets for two complimentary beverages for everyone attending! Trenzas Negras, a lively band playing popular music of all cultures, will be back for a second year of great musical entertainment.

If you are not a member of the IFC or have not yet renewed for 2014, this will be an ideal opportunity to join or renew, and if you are new, to find out more about the IFC and why almost 700 of your friends and neighbors already belong. The event is being organized by IFC VP of Operations Mandy MacLeay assisted by Clara Forbes heading up the Food Committee.

The IFC was formed in 1985 and in 1986 began a program to provide cleft palate surgeries for children in the area. The program has grown over the years and offers children born with a cleft palate immediate care and surgeries as well as ongoing treatment as needed to repair palate and lips, dental and orthodontia, speech therapy and plastic surgery. At any given time there may be as many as 200 children from birth until age 18 in the program. Doctors and nurses come from Guadalajara four times each year to check the children and operate on those who require attention. We welcome you to be part of our club and know that your membership helps to provide this life-changing care for these children.

The IFC raises money for the Cleft Palate Program, education programs, and financial support for other local charities by offering Home Tours and a Botanical Gardens/Zoo Tour each week from November until April. Find out more about the popular tours at IFC Tours
