The International Friendship Club announces the opening of their 24rd Home Tour season beginning November 14, 2012, with a regular Wednesday and Thursday schedule until April 10 and 11, 2013.
"Our home tours are the original home tours in Vallarta and have been offering a glimpse behind the closed doors of spectacular homes in the area for over 24 years!"
The proceeds from the tours fund a number of Puerto Vallarta charities, primarily our Cleft Palate Surgical Program and other in-house Educational and Community Service Programs. It also provides assistance to Becas Vallarta, the Refugio Infantil Santa Esperanza (R.I.S.E), the Los Mangos Biblioteca, Santa Barbara Clinic Rehab and the Salvation Army, among others.
All the work is accomplished by volunteer club members dedicated to contributing to our long established goals of a giving a helping hand to the less fortunate children of Puerto Vallarta and its surrounding areas.
The tours meet at 242 Aquiles Serdan, just west of Ignacio L. Vallarta, in front of "Restaurante La Albufera" across from the Condominium Molino de Agua.
