Spaghetti Friend-Raiser for Firefighters & Lifeguards

Gary Green - Green and Associates
April 18, 2012

Superman, Spiderman, and Batman – they are whom many consider heroes. But it is the firefighters and lifeguards who come to our rescue and save the lives of our loved ones day in and day out - all in all, they are the real-life heroes.

On Saturday, June 9, 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm, you are invited to attend the Second Annual Spaghetti Friend-Raiser at the Puerto Vallarta Fire Department.

Last year's inaugural event attracted over 200 caring residents and visitors and generated nearly 40,000 pesos to support our first-responders, the 90 men and women of the Puerto Vallarta Fire Department.

In addition to the much-needed funds, 250 kilos - over 500 pounds - of "Bring-a-Thing" items were also donated.

With the funds raised in 2011, committee members coordinated the purchase of mattresses, bed frames, pillows, mattress pads, bee suits, and a kitchen storage cabinet.

2011 sponsors included Villa Premiere Hotel and Spa, Buenaventura Grand Hotel and Spa, Daiquiri Dicks, Playa Los Arcos Hotel, Andale’s Restaurant, Andales on the Bay, Holiday Inn Puerto Vallarta, Howard Johnsons, Westin Resort and Spa, No Way Jose, Colleen’s Breakfast Café, Mediterranean Cafe and Bakery,, Margaret Souder, Judith St Gaudens, Apache’s Martini Bar and Bistro, Jill and Al Forster, Sheraton Buganvilias Resort and Convention Center, OXXO, COSTCO, Pasteleria Celebrations, Tsunami Restaurant, Instituto Franco Mexicano, Casserole Instituto, Dr. Max Greig, Bill Wortzel, Ed Alejandre Hospital Versalles and Fruteria de Billar. Committee members included Pam Thompson, Kelly Trainor, Cindy DuChateau, Bert Ramirez and Gary Green.

The Spaghetti Friend-Raiser also served as the catalyst to launch the Heroes calendar with funds earmarked for training and life-saving equipment.

Tickets to the Second Annual Spaghetti Friend-Raiser are available for 150 pesos. In addition to tickets, the Department is hoping event-goers will contribute to "Bring-a-Thing" by donating ace wraps, antibiotic ointment, cleaning supplies, gauze sterile dressings, non-sterile and sterile gloves, over-the-counter medicines for pain relief, personal hygiene supplies, powdered infant formula, thermometers, toothbrushes and toothpaste, towels, vitamins, cleaning supplies, crutches and other items.

Located at the Puerto Vallarta Fire Department, Av. Las Americas, Colonia Olimpica, near the Municipal Stadium.
