The Becas Ball Social Event of the Season Supports Scholarship Students

Polly G. Vicars - Becas Vallarta
February 11, 2015

After the ball was over in 2014 it was written “Glamorous ball goers agreed that the March 8, 2014 Becas Ball at the Club Regina more than lived up to it billing as the 'social event of the season.' The garden was filled with beautifully dressed ladies along with men sipping unique cocktails imagined and furnished by the Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, served by a cadre of their handsome and efficient waiters for the first hour of the event.”

The year 2015 will exceed those kudos. The date is earlier than usual, February 28, a night that promises to be a beautiful moonlit evening by the sea at the Club Regina in the Marina, Puerto Vallarta.

The hour to begin is 6:00 pm in the garden with the theme "Casablanca, Morocco." The suggested dress colors are black and white. The cocktail party is once again imagined and furnished by the Four Seasons Resort in Punta Mita with new unique concoctions to surprise and please every palate.  

Located next to the Cocktail Party will be an amazing array of Silent Auction items donated from as far away as Guanajuato, Patzcuaro, Manzanilla, Guadalajara, Mexico City and of course Puerto Vallarta.  Exotic hotels all over Mexico support our Becados year after year, as do the hard working artists, businesses, jewelers, and restaurants of Puerto Vallarta. There will be golf passes from our prominent golf courses, Spanish lessons, Pilates lessons and much, much more. Bidding will be until 9:00. Collecting and paying for winning bids will start at 9:30.

We will be escorted to our tables, awesomely decorated by Rocco, at 7 o'clock, by a cadre of university scholarship students. Rocco always takes our breath away and this year will be no different. We will be served wine, compliments of Trio, and a four course dinner that will tantalize our appetites. During dinner, and afterwards, there will be music for your listening pleasure and for dancing on one of the two dance floors. There will be entertainment, introduction of the scholarship students and many surprises.  

Tickets are 1500 pesos or $110 USD. We take checks made to Becas Vallarta, A. C., credit cards and, of course, cash in pesos or dollars. Tickets must be reserved and bought in advance by contacting any member of Becas or Polly Vicars at (322) 223-1371 or e-mail at to make arrangements for payment and receive tickets.

Cocktails by Four Seasons, decorations by Rocco, wine by Trio, sit down gourmet dinner, music, chance to chat with scholarship students, chance to buy incredible gifts or vacations, door prizes, and most important to help the almost 400 students of little means, but great ability, to get the education they desire and deserve.

Even though most everyone agrees that education is the key to living a productive and satisfying life and that it should be available to every child, that is not always the case for Puerto Vallarta kids. Many come from single parent homes, homes with five, six or more children or homes where the breadwinner makes only enough to provide the very basics of life. Those circumstances make it impossible for the children, no matter how bright and eager to learn, to continue their education past the mandated junior high. That is where Becas Vallarta, A.C. and the America-Mexico Foundation, Inc. come in. Together they have sponsored thousands of young Vallartenses through junior high, high school, university and even medical school.

The Club Regina is located at Av. Paseo de La Marina 205 in Marina Vallarta.
