The Vallarta Yacht Club has just announced their fall fundraising event to benefit the Junior Sailing Program. The theme is Fiesta Cubana and will be held Saturday, November 23 at 6:00 PM after the first day of races of the traditional “Regata de la Revolucion.”
This event generally draws fantastic prizes and an auction and raffle item donated by many generous companies from the community, and is a great opportunity to socialize with friends while drinking, dancing, eating and bidding! Dinner plus drink tickets are on sale now at the Vallarta Yacht Club located at the Paradise Village Marina in Nuevo Vallarta.
Tickets for adults are $300 pesos and children 12 and under ticket pay $150 pesos for authentic Cuban food and fun. Raffle tickets will be sold on-site and drink tickets are $20 pesos each or 5 for $100. Of course, the drink of the night will be Mojitos, but full bar service will be open. A Cuban salsa dance show and Cuban music will be provided throughout the evening.
Net proceeds from the event will go to financing scholarships and equipment to the Junior Sailing Program. One out of six children in the program is under a sailing scholarship program for which a 8.5 GPA is required, along with excellent conduct reports and a recommendation, financial need, supportive parents and above all a great a desire to sail. The Junior Sailing Program at the Vallarta Yacht Club is one of the few in the country that does not oblige youngsters to provide their own equipment. Along the way children gain self-confidence and pride in their accomplishments while learning life skills such as decision making, team work and developing character, knowledge and love for the sea.
This Fundraiser is open to people of all ages and is a great opportunity for those interested in the sport of sailing. Any questions welcome and can be directed to Rudy Trejo at the Vallarta Yacht Club (322) 297-2222 firstname.lastname@example.org.
