- Banco de Alimentos
- Biblioteca Los Mangos
- Biblioteca Rey Nayar
- Fundación Down
- IFC – Club Internacional de la Amistad
- Casa Hogar Máximo Cornejo
- Manos de Amor
- Clínica de Rehabilitación Sta. Bárbara

While this is going on, a number of favorite local restaurants offer guests a sampling of their menus. Participating restaurants this year include El Arrayán, Barcelona Tapas, Café des Artistes, Daquiri Dicks, Kaiser Maximilian, and River Café among many others.
Tickets for the event, which also includes live entertainment, are $350 pesos per person, presale, and $450 at the door, available at the hotel’s concierge desk. For more information, please contact Lourdes Bizarro at firstname.lastname@example.org.
