Puerto Vallarta • Riviera Nayarit 

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:

Adelitas Restaurant • Alexander A. Salon • Andales Restaurant • Archie’s Wok • Botanical Gardens Vallarta • Bravos Restaurant Bar • Casa Isabel • Casandra Shaw Jewelry • Café des Artistes • Cheeky Monkey • Coco’s Kitchen • Florart Maripepa Gonzales • Flowers To Go • LaPalapa Restaurant • Lucy’s Cucú Cabaña • Marcelo Mico Pilates • Melchor Cortes Spanish School Vallarta • Nacho Daddy Mex-Tex Restaurant & Bar • River Café Cuisine • Teresa Luna Massages • Toya’s Salon • Xocodiva Artisan Chocolates.

You can expect nothing less when we close the season at Coco’s Kitchen on April 15, 2015 at 9:30 am.

The owner, Coco Iñiguez, with her affable staff, will be there to see that everything is to your liking.

There will be many raffle prizes and door prizes, too. As always, you must buy or reserve your tickets in advance. You can do that with any member of Becas or with Polly Vicars at 223-1371 or Just don’t get sick so you won’t be one of the phone calls or emails this time.

We look forward to seeing all of you at Coco’s Kitchen on and want to thank you for your continued support of Becas Vallarta, A.C. Don’t forget that all our funds go toward helping bright students of limited means reach their educational goals which they desire and deserve.

Coco's Kitchen & Wine Garden is located in Old Town Vallarta at Pulpito No. 122.
