The Vallarta Yacht Club in Nuevo Vallarta will host its semi-annual fundraiser in support of the Junior Sailing Program on Saturday, May 5.  This event, which will take place at the Vallarta Yacht Club (www.vallartayachtclub.org), is critical to continue providing this unique opportunity to youth all over Banderas Bay 8-14 years old.  Funds received help keep boats and equipment maintained, and provide scholarship opportunities through an “Adopt a Sailor” campaign for Summer Sailing Camp and winter classes.

This season’s fundraiser will include a 3-course sit down dinner with a special tango dance exhibition of tango and more entertainment.  A raffle and auction is a highlight of the evening, featuring hotel certificates, spa experiences, dinner gift certificates and other exciting gifts graciously offered by various restaurants, hotels and merchants across the Banderas Bay area.

Price for the dinner is $300 pesos per person, with all net proceeds going to support the Jr. Sailing Program. Sailing develops maturity and self reliance in these youths and offers the opportunity to both sail for fun and compete with young sailors across Mexico.  In 2011, VYC Junior Sailors participated in the Mexico Jr. Olympics and earned 9 medals, including 2 gold.  Let’s join together and keep the program going.
