The special event raised $50,000 pesos of the $300,000 pesos goal for this year’s calendar that benefits the Puerto Vallarta firefighters and lifeguards. Past calendars have provided important training and equipment to first responders in the area.
The 15-month calendar is just $200 pesos and now available at several south side locations including Saturday’s Farmers Market at Lazaro Cardenas Park, offices of PVRPV.com, Reinas, Apaches, Salud Super Food, La Noche Lounge and La Margarita. For a complete list of locations, please email [email protected]. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, 100% of the calendar sales will benefit the Department’s education programs, fund training programs and the purchase of lifesaving equipment.
