Corazón de Niña foundation is proud to announce that it will be hosting the second annual Poker Walk on Sunday, March 20th from 12pm to 4pm. The event is taking place across five Marina Vallarta bars that are sponsoring the event: Sticky Fingers Grill House, Mr. Dz’s Route 66 Diner, Fajita Banana, Chappy’s Sports Bar, and Victor’s Place Cafe Tacuba.
Registration for the Poker Walk begins at noon at Sticky Fingers, located at Marina del Rey L-93, where participants can pick up their “player cards” for a suggested donation of $100 pesos. The concept of the Poker Walk consists on “bar hopping” from place to place, where players will draw a card at each bar to help make a five card poker hand.
Participants are welcome to pick up as many playing cards as they like for $100 pesos each.
All playing cards must be turned in at Victor’s by 4pm for winners to be selected. The winning five card poker hand will win the first prize of $5,000, the second $3,000 and third $2,000 pesos. Hosts will also be having raffle draws, a 50-50 draw and bottle draws for fun and prizes. All proceeds of the event go directly to Corazón de Niña.
Corazón de Niña is a home for children and youth who come from high-risk situations such as abandonment, negligence, physical, emotional or sexual abuse. The organization is a safe haven that currently houses 23 girls and 22 boys in two neighboring houses. Corazón de Niña is fully dependent on donations for its operations, as they receive no funding from the government.
“We want to thank everyone who comes out to our fundraising events, it’s with your support that are we able to provide a loving and safe environment for these kids and youth who are otherwise at risk,” said Melissa Canez, Co-Founder and President. “The funds raised at these events is a tremendous help for the whole family, especially with the upcoming slow summer months.”
The last event of the season for Corazón de Niña is the third annual Rockin’ Under the Stars event at Casa Karma Boutique Resort, which will take place on April 8th from 7:30-11pm. The restaurants donating canapés for the night are La Palapa, Vista Grill, Cafe des Artistes, No Way José!, Sapphire Ocean Club, Trio’s, Amadeo’s Bistro and Seasons PV. Entertainment for the night will be provided by Paul Fricassi, one of the Canadian Idol
finalists. For ticket information please visit: https://www.facebook.com/CorazonDeNinaPv/
