As you know, there have been two extremely devastating earthquakes here in Mexico in the past several weeks. Many people have expressed a desire to do something to help. As a result, Act II has worked very quickly, and on Sunday, October 1st, will present a benefit concert, “MUSIC FOR MEXICO,” with 100% of the proceeds being used to help people in the areas that were hardest hit in Mexico.
Many of Act II’s superstars have stepped up to the plate and have volunteered to perform in this wonderful show, including Paul Fracassi, Gabe Arciniega, Diana Villamonte, UsTwo, Cesar Medina, Elvis Morales, Alfonso López and Trinity.
There will also be a silent auction and a raffle to raise funds for the relief effort. Act II has received many fabulous donations, and more are coming in every day. Some of our donors include Casa Karma Boutique hotel & Mira Mar Yelapa both donating 2 night stays, gift certificates from Bravos, Nacho Daddy, Los Muertos Brewing, Mordidas, Salud Super Food, Vallarta Food Tours, Cork & Bottle, Linda’s Nails, Studio Uli, Metamorfosis Day Spa, Alexander A Salon, Joy of Floating Spa, Shamiana Light Therapy, Bahia Chiropractic, Steve Owen Photography, Cassandra Shaw Jewelry, Erica Maree Designs, 1 week stay in Act II condo, tickets from Act II and more.
Jim Lee from Living Vallarta will be providing appetizers for the party beginning at 6:00 pm.
Because of the huge response to this show, Act II is making plans to set up a Disaster Relief Fund. It will present four benefit shows per year, with 100% of the proceeds going into an immediate response fund, with the money available at a moment’s notice.
The goal is to raise $100,000 pesos, so now is your chance to help. If you aren’t in town, but still want to help, just log on to http://act2pv.com and click on “Music for Mexico.” Then, buy a ticket for a volunteer or donate by pressing the paypal “donate” button (on the right side of your screen).
