Nightlife is essential for the LGBTQ culture of Puerto Vallarta in the Romantic Zone. Those whose main source of income is nightlife are experiencing economic insecurity as a result of the closure of bars and nightclubs in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The purpose of the Puerto Vallarta Nightlife Relief Fund (PVNRF) is to provide financial assistance to workers in the nightlife industry as the current crisis continues. People in the PV nightlife literally live off their tips since the minimum wage is only 120 pesos ($4.91 USD) per day and with no stimulus controls or government assistance in sight, they need our help now more than ever.
On Saturday May 23, 2020, drag star Sutton Lee Seymour and Billboard recording artist and PVNRF founder Brian Kent join forces to host a star-studded live stream on YouTube and Facebook to raise money to distribute to local beneficiaries and benefit 150 employees in the industry. The show will consist of LIVE performances and appearances by your favorite local and international celebrities, all to the benefit of those affected by this pandemic in the nightlife industry here in Vallarta.
Our first campaign will benefit the staffs of La Noche, Reinas, Garbo, Mantamar, Blondies, Los Otros Blondies, WET, The Top, Margarita Bar, and Mr Flamingos. All funds will be given to the employees of those establishments directly.
Every donation over $25 has the chance to win a reward...
• $100 or more - FOUR Nights Stay at Almar Resort (based on availability/non holiday dates)
• $50 or more
- Private cabana and bottle service for two at Mantamar Beach Club
