Becas Vallarta Breakfast Fundraiser Schedule for 2014-2015

Polly G. Vicars - Becas Vallarta
October 30, 2014

Mark Wednesday, November 19, 2014 for the first Becas Breakfast at the beautiful oceanfront bistro, Vitea. This is a time to greet old friends just back from summer vacation, meet newcomers who are just discovering Puerto Vallarta, help 400 young Becados (scholarship students) keep receiving their scholarships and enjoy a delicious breakfast designed and prepared by the famous owner/chefs Bernard Güth and Ulf Henriksson.  

There will be raffle prizes and a silent auction of beautiful artwork and gifts from prominent restaurants and businesses in Puerto Vallarta who are always generous to help keep our students in school.

Becas Vallarta, A.C. (America-Mexico Foundation, Inc.) is a foundation dedicated to raising money to provide scholarships for Puerto Vallarta’s young people, 8th grade through university. To qualify for a scholarship students must come from a Puerto Vallarta family of small economic resources, maintain a grade point average of 8.5 and be a good citizen in school and at home.  Once they earn a scholarship we continue it as long as they meet the criteria.

For junior high becados we provide vouchers to cover their school uniform, their gym clothes, their school and tennis shoes. We also give them, in one of our four meetings with the young people, all of their school supplies – pencils, notebooks, math tools, dictionary, calculator, etc.  

For high school and university becados we provide a monetary stipend given twice a year. Each high school becado receives a total of 5500 pesos a school year. Each university becado receives a total of 7000 pesos. They are at liberty to spend this money on their most pressing needs – whether if be bus transportation, tuition, books or in some cases food.

The November 19th breakfast will begin at 9:30 am. The price is the same as always, 150 pesos shared equally by Becas and Vitea. Tickets must be purchased in advance and you may contact any member of Becas or call or write Polly Vicars at or (322) 223-1371 for your tickets.
