IFC Celebrates International Waffle Day with Breakfast Fundraiser

Janie Albright Blank - International Friendship Club
March 19, 2014

The International Friendship Club (IFC) is celebrating International Waffle Day by holding a Waffle Breakfast at the River Café on March 25.

The breakfast will begin at 9:30 am with tickets available online, at the IFC Clubhouse, or at the door for 200 pesos per person. It also happens to be Pecan Day so the "signature" waffle will be a Pecan Waffle.

The ticket includes your choice of a Pecan Waffle topped with Banana Sauce, a Classic Waffle topped with Chocolate and Strawberries or Apples and Cinnamon, or for the traditionalist a Denver Omelet with ham, bell pepper, onion and cheese served with roasted potatoes will also be available. All meals come with Juice, and coffee or tea. Your gratuity is included in your ticket price. The breakfast will have door prizes and raffle tickets for some great items donated by generous local merchants.

The money raised from the Waffle Breakfast will assist a very worthy food aid program, the IFC Rice and Beans Program. This is a program that has been in existence for many years. The program provides food aid to community centers that support children and families in economic need. Most of the centers assist kids with homework, have a before or after school program, and some have English or Math classes or courses in nutrition and hygiene. Some centers have extended classes that teach sewing, knitting, crochet, sandal/shoe making and jewelry making to parents.

The rice and beans program reaches out to hundreds each month and contributes to thousands of meals throughout the Puerto Vallarta community. Susan Harrie Davalos, RN, volunteer Chair of the IFC Community Service Committee, says, "The IFC is one of the rays of sunshine that radiates through Puerto Vallarta and makes it the wonderful, caring city it has become. The IFC is made up of these same wonderful, caring people whose goal is to make a change for the better in the lives of others."
