Beautify Puerto Vallarta!!! Bingo for Bougainvillea – Week 1


In an effort to beautify Vallarta, Robert Price of The Botanical Gardens in conjunction with the City of Puerto Vallarta are planting 5000 bougainvillea bushes from the International Airport to Mismaloya. Showing their support for this huge undertaking, Tim Longpré of PVRPV – Condo Rentals, Charlotte Semple and Carole Fast of Xocodiva Artisan Chocolates and Grant Hunermund of bite me! beach club hosted the first of 3 nights of Bingo for Bougainvillea in the bite me! beach club seaside lounge. Robert, who was in attendance, says he is hoping to create a festival in Puerto Vallarta on the same or a grander scale as the Washington Cherry Blossom festival. Kudos Robert and thank you.


42 people packed the lounge and our guest caller, Juan Carlos Garcia from PVRPV, kept the evening moving along in great style. We raised $7,770.00 pesos which broken down is 485 bushes or 11.5 plants per person.
