Claudia Victoria R. & Carmen Porras E. owners of EL ARRAYÁN Mexican Restaurant in Puerto Vallarta are very excited and proud to announce this benefit event on Sunday October 29th, 2017, from 5:30 to 11:00 pm.

After the strong earthquakes of September 7th & 19th, and the following tropical storms that have badly hit our brothers in the area of Tehuantepec Isthmus, the regional “Community High School José Martí” has been turned into a help center for the town of San Francisco Ixhuatán, Oaxaca. For the moment classes have been suspended until the local residents have more humane conditions to continue living a more usual life and return to their common activities. According to the school’s Principal, Prof. Manuel Antonio: “We have counted the structures in this small town, 70% of them are damaged by quakes or the following floods. These buildings are to be demolished soon. We are in a very difficult situation, facing this emergency.”
This school has been used most recently as: collection & distribution center for food items, medical supply, clothing & building materials. Dental & medical services. Psychological help for children & the elderly. People from the community, all the brave students, and teaching body have helped as a volunteer team during these very tough times.
