Kelly Trainor, American Consulate for Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit, in conjunction with CasaMagna Marriott Resort & Spa, are once again the proud organizers of the 13th International Altruism Festival in Puerto Vallarta.

This is the most important altruism event of Puerto Vallarta and will take place on Sunday, May 14, 2017, beginning at 6:00 pm, in the beautiful beachfront garden of the CasaMagna Marriott Resort in Marina Vallarta.

Some of the best restaurants in the Puerto Vallarta area will be offering food and refreshments. There will be live entertainment, fireworks, dancing and cultural representations.

All proceeds will be donated to the 20 chosen charity and non-profit organizations who need your help.

Each charity will be given the opportunity to host a display at the festival to highlight the great impact they are having on the Puerto Vallarta community.
