Families at the Dump and the Navy League's Toys for Tots programs each received a check for 33,790.00 pesos as a result of the 2nd annual "Taste of Nuevo / 14th annual Cruisers Chili Cook-off."
This is a significant increase from last year's event and could not have been possible without the generous support of all the participating restaurants, chili cookers, bakers, and all of the volunteers who donated of their time and talent.
Thanks are also in order to the folks at Marina Nuevo Vallarta who donated tables and chairs for the event and to the Nayarit Visitors Bureau who provided signs and music.
This event is sponsored by the Vallarta Yacht Club and was held on the Malecon in Nuevo Vallarta. Plans are being developed for next year's event which is tentatively scheduled to be held at the same location on Saturday December 5, 2015.
