Bingo for Bougainvillea – Week 3


In an effort to beautify Vallarta, Robert Price of The Botanical Gardens in conjunction with the City of Puerto Vallarta are planting 5000 bouganvillea bushes from the International Airport to Mismaloya. Showing their support for this huge undertaking, Tim Longpré of PVRPV – Puerto Vallarta Gay Rentals, Charlotte Semple and Carole Fast of Xocodiva Artisan Chocolates and Grant Hunermund of bite me! beach club hosted the final of 3 nights of Bingo for Bouganvillea 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.

45 people packed the lounge and our guest caller, Grant Hunermund, kept the evening moving along in great style. The sound system died so he had to yell at the crowd but that worked well and all had a great time. We raised $8,070.00 pesos which broken down is 504 bushes. In total we have purchased 1424 plants for this extremely worthwhile cause. Huge kudos to everyone involved.
