Last Becas Vallarta Breakfast Fundraiser of the Season at Coco's Kitchen

Polly G. Vicars - Becas Vallarta
April 2, 2015

River Café was the exotic setting for the Becas Breakfast in March, but we didn't have to turn people away as we have always done in the past. This time bronchitis, colds, other infirmities decimated our supporters. Email after email, telephone call after telephone call informed me that someone who had reserved a place was not going to be able to attend due to illness. We are sorry so many were sick and sincerely hope they are now well and ready for the last breakfast of the season, Coco’s Kitchen on April 15, 2015.

Becas Vice Presidents Pat Bendix and Linda Wirth greeted all comers at the door of the River Café where the reserved tickets were waiting to be picked up. Becas Members Richard Bendix and Aurora de la Torre obtained their long strings of tickets from raffle master Terry With and proceeded to circle the room selling the tickets for 50 pesos for one and 100 pesos for 3. The hot food was served promptly by genial waiters and soon all were enjoying the morning with the owner Eva Sanchez and her efficient staff.

Local author Gil Givens delighted everyone with his imitable humor as he called out the winning raffle numbers in both English and Spanish. Squeals of pleasure emitted from all area of the restaurant as supporters found they had won a valuable prize from one of these generous donors below. We are so gratified for their generosity and ask you to help us say thank you by using their services:
