The Banderas Bay area is home to a variety of charities and non-profit organisations that enhance the lives of those who are in need of help, so once again, CasaMagna Marriott Resort Puerto Vallarta and American Consular Agent Kelly Trainor are teaming up to host the 10th Annual International Festival of Altruism.

Every year, over one thousand Puerto Vallarta residents and visitors turn out for this event, which features top restaurants offering food and refreshments, live entertainment, dancing and more for one low price, with all proceeds donated to Banderas Bay area charitable organisations who are in need of a little help, including:
