'Changing Lives Through Education' by Becas Vallarta

Ron and Theresa Prill - Becas Vallarta
January 23, 2016

This year’s theme for Becas Ball is “Guelaguetza - Viva Oaxaca” and will feature traditional food and entertainment from Oaxaca.

Join the Fun and Help the Children of Vallarta go to School.

Becas Vallarta provides scholarships to hundreds of Puerto Vallarta youth who would not otherwise be able to go to school because their parents cannot afford school uniforms, proper shoes and school supplies such as the notebooks and pencils, pens, etc. that are required.

Becas Vallarta provides all of that for students from Preparatory through University.

Becas Vallarta holds five breakfasts a season at popular Vallarta restaurants. Apart from good food and a chance to meet friends, old and new, the breakfasts offer many raffle prizes, silent auction and gift bags. These popular events are usually sold out, so contact one of the Becas volunteers whose names and numbers are listed below to reserve tickets for the next Becas breakfast scheduled for February 17th at River Cafe. The final fundraiser breakfast of the season will be on Wednesday, April 13 at Coco's Kitchen.

The always popular Annual Becas Ball will be on Friday, March 4th this year at the beautiful Westin Regina Patio in Marina Vallarta.

Enjoy an evening of cocktails, dining, dancing and wonderful entertainment, all the while helping Vallarta’s young people.

Many of the scholarship recipients will be in attendance, so our guests will have an opportunity to talk to the students. So save the date! March 4th, 2016 at 6:00 pm.

This year’s theme is “Guelaguetza - Viva Oaxaca” and will feature traditional food and entertainment from Oaxaca.
