Mexican restaurant El Arrayán is hosting a fundraising event to benefit MexPup, a Puerto Vallarta-based volunteer non-profit organization that has been helping street dogs since last year. The event will take place on Thursday, January 19 at 7 PM.

Enjoy gourmet appetizers that have helped place this Readers’ Choice Award-winning restaurant on the map. Wash your treats down with three full hours of open bar, featuring select El Arrayán signature margaritas, beer and soda (a cash bar is also available) while enjoying live music by Los Frixoleros.

Inspired by the Purr Project, MexPup was created with homeless dogs in mind. Everyone who works for, volunteers with, or supports MexPup, shares empathy for the homeless dogs of Mexico. Learn more about the organization by visiting their website,www.mexpup.com.
