Looking for a Christmas gift for someone special? Want to treat yourself and your friends? Look no further - get tickets now for the fashion show of the season!

Imagine the fun of sitting together with friends in an fabulous venue, watching a great fashion show, enjoying a well-crafted 3 course meal and helping a worthy cause! Here’s your chance!

After last year’s overwhelming success and a complete sellout, Deja New’s Kathleen Palmer is ringing in the new year with a Fashion Charity Luncheon at River Café with all proceeds going to Pasitos de Luz.

This remarkable event will take place on Saturday, January 16th at 12:30 pm. Donation tickets for this highly sought event are available now for only 300 PESOS! And, as an added bonus, enjoy a special guest appearance by Lorena Peril, a previous Las Vegas headliner!

Your ticket price includes an appetizer, lunch, and dessert with coffee, tax & tip!

The fun includes door prizes, raffles, silent auction and a 50/50 raffle.

In addition to the door prize given to those who enter their name on their luncheon tickets, you can get tickets for an extra door prize by donating gently used clothing. One ticket will be given for every clothing item donated to the Pasitos de Luz account at Deja New Consignment.

From Pasitos de Luz

"We are very pleased to update you on our children and services that we have provided this year. We continue to help 120 vulnerable families by providing care and treatment to their children who suffer from disabilities. These families reside in Puerto Vallarta and Banderas Bay.

This year we have nine children who have learned basic skills that will allow them to be channeled into regular schooling. Six of our children have learned to walk and two more will soon be able to wander without help! This is very encouraging for us and their families. Four of our children are learning to sit without support. We have recently added ten new students to the Pasitos de Luz family and will be working to assess their capacity and challenges and determine needed services to develop their potential.

So far in 2015, we have provided a large number of important services including 3362 physical therapy sessions, 1022 multiple early stimulation sessions, 550 occupational therapy sessions, 162 hydrotherapy sessions and 61 electrotherapy sessions. Contributions such as yours help us to provide these wide range of invaluable services.

We are proud of our successes and are deeply appreciative of the contributions from all of our supporters whose generosity contributes to those successes. With your help, we are able to provide nutritious foods and snacks, physical rehabilitation, medical services, orthopaedic equipment, and occupational and speech therapy. We change lives for the better!!"
