Philanthropy Continues

Hook For The Cure benefits the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

Puerto Vallarta was the destination for anglers and golfers who participated in this years BJ’s Restaurants Hook for The Cure tournament.

The third week of October brought two dozen boats and over 30 teams to the beautiful waters of the Bay of Banderas and reeled in a whopping $450,000.00. In three years Hook for the Cure has raised over $1’000,000.00 for Cystic Fibrosis, a disease affecting over 40,000 Americans and Mexicans.

Local host Villa Premier Hotel and Spa once again was the home for all participants and PVRPV provided the volunteers for the event.

Plans are underway for the Fourth Annual Hook for the Cure slated for November 5 – 8 2009. For more information visit http://www.hookthecure.org/ or visit our offices.

As most of you are aware PVRPV has always been involved in many different charities over the past years in Vallarta. This year, we have come up with a new way of raising funds for local charities. English Classes will be offered to Mexicans and the classes will take place in our new office.

At this time, the classes are being offered Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30am to 9:30am or from 6:00pm to 7:00pm. The total cost is $20.00 pesos per class and they must pay in advance for the month for a total of $160.00 pesos. If there is more interest, we will offer the classes on Mondays and Wednesdays at the same times.

A few retired teachers have offered their services and they are volunteering their time to help with this cause. This was initially offered to my staff members and their family. We are now in a position to offer these classes to others in the community. I currently have about 8 spaces left for the morning classes and about 5 spaces for the evening classes.

If you know of anyone who is interested or if you want to send someone to us, please contact me directly or that them contact me at tim@pvrpv.com or my cell number 044 322.135.6677.

At the end of each month, with the funds that are collected, we will as a group decide which organization we will donate to, that way every month a different charitable organization will benefit.

Next Thursday November 20th. will be the last opportunity to join this 12 week session. For more information please feel free to contact me or drop by our office.

In addition, the students do not need to buy anything for the classes as we are supplying them with everything they will require.
