A beautiful evening for a fiesta in the IFC Courtyard

Everybody is invited to join the International Friendship Club of Puerto Vallarta in our annual Open House celebration.

Get to know about the IFC and all the great ways we contribute to the community and learn the benefits of becoming a member.

Our Open House will again be hosted at our IFC Clubhouse, so save the date of Tuesday, January 8, from 6:00 until 8:00 pm.

The bar was busy non-stop since everyone attending received two free drink tickets!

The event is free and everyone is invited to enjoy two free drinks (beer or wine), great food and entertainment by Trenzas Negras who play South American, Central American, Mexican and Classic Rock music.

Last year, the Open House was attended by over 250 members and guests in our newly remodeled Clubhouse on January 10, 2012.

The International Friendship Club (IFC) is a volunteer organization committed to funding charitable causes.

Social activities are also available to the membership, many of whom also volunteer countless hours endeavoring to make our programs a success.

The IFC began in 1985 with a handful of people from the United States and Canada meeting socially. This blossomed into the well known charitable organization that exists today.

Clara Forbe organized the volunteers who made and served the food while the River Cafe brought over some delicious hot appetizers as well

Through financial contributions, as well as devoted and compassionate service, humanitarian aid in excess of ten million pesos has been provided to needy children and families living in this beautiful tropical city.

The IFC takes pride in its unique Cleft Palate Program. It begins with providing fees for transporting doctors who donate their time to perform the surgeries. It ends with seeing smiles on the children's faces and their parent's tears of joy at its completion.

Additionally, the IFC provides: free medication; disaster relief aid; educational assistance; monthly financial assistance; a dental hygiene program and food to families as well as gifts to other Charitable Institutions.

Our membership has a caring compassionate camaraderie and love for the less fortunate, in abundance. In order to maintain the programs that we support, your assistance is requested. Be so kind as to consider this an invitation to become a valued member of our organization.

The International Friendship Clubhouse is located in South Downtown Vallarta on the NE corner of the Insurgentes bridge above HSBC, Edificio Parian del Puente #13. Telephone is (322) 222-5466 or from the US/Canada (514) 418-2123. Email is
Come and share in the fun on January 8!
