The premiere edition of the Vallarta-Nayarit Classic Rock Fest is set to end on a high note on December 15th at 10:00 am with the Charity Golf Outing, Fairways to Heaven, to be held at the Vista Vallarta Golf Club, where rockers, tourists and the population at large will enjoy a good time with a cause.
As announced during the festival presentation, a percentage of the ticket sales and registration fees for this friendly golf tournament will be donated to the Sistemas de Desarrollo Integral de la Familia (DIF) of Puerto Vallarta and Banderas Bay. This entity is a public institution of social assistance in Mexico that focuses on strengthening and developing the welfare of Mexican families.
“The reason we’re holding the tournament is because the rock stars will all be here, they love to play golf and we want to support the Sistemas DIF,” explained John Zaring, Director of the Organizing Committee. “This created a fantastic opportunity to generate some money and donate it to charity.”
The specially discounted registration fee for the charity event will be $150 USD per person and includes participation in the game, a golf cart, one meal, drinks and a gift kit.
The special pricing for participating is expected to incentivize assistance and therefore raise as much money as possible. Besides playing on a fabulous Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course at a reduced fee, the tourists, residents and locals will be able to experience hanging out with their favorite stars.
The tournament will host teams of four players each with a rock star as captain. There will be prizes for holes in one, the longest shot and the closest to the pin.
Don't miss this grand event where the rock stars will leave their guitars for a while and pick up their golf clubs to spend some time with their fans and support a good cause. To register for the tournament call (322) 290-0030 or visit Vallarta-Nayarit Classic Rock Fest.
