As in year’s past, the Casamagna Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa will host the 8th International Altruism Festival on Sunday, May 6, starting at 6 pm. Over thirty local restaurants will offer a gastronomic treat, showcasing some of their dishes, while attendees enjoy live musical entertainment and a fireworks display. Tickets for this annual tradition are $300 pesos per person in advance, $400 pesos at the door. All proceeds from the Festival will be equally distributed among 24 benefit associations that must adhere to specific guidelines in order to become beneficiaries.

Some of this year’s participating restaurants include Barcelona Tapas, Café des Artistes, Daiquiri Dicks, India Gate, Kaiser Maximilian, La Leche, La Palapa, Las Casitas, Mikado, No Way Jose, Outback Steakhouse, and many others. In addition, all beneficiary agencies will be present during the festival, providing information for those interested in participating in their volunteering programs. 

Last year, over 1,600 people attended the Altruism Festival, successfully raising $588,000 pesos ($24,500 pesos for each beneficiary organization). Organizers are expecting to raise their own bar this year with more attendance. Advance tickets are available at all participating agencies (listed below), along with the CasaMagna Marriot’s concierge. For more information, please contact Lourdes Bizarro at 226-0048.
