Claudia Victoria R. & Carmen Porras E. owners of EL ARRAYÁN Mexican Restaurant in Puerto Vallarta are very excited and proud to announce this benefit event on Sunday October 29th, 2017, from 5.30 pm to 11pm.

Chef Diego Sánchez A. and his kitchen team will be cooking the traditional hearty soup Pozole with pork (or vegan option). Local musicians will be playing a repertoire of Mexican & Latin American Music LIVE.

After the strong earthquakes of September 7th & 19th, and the following tropical storms that have badly hit our brothers in the area of Tehuantepec Isthmus, the regional “Community High School José Martí” has been turned into a help center for the town of San Francisco Ixhuatán, Oaxaca. For the moment classes have been suspended until the local residents have more humane conditions to continue living a more usual life and return to their common activities. According to the school’s Principal, Prof. Manuel Antonio: “We have counted the structures in this small town, 70% of them are damaged by quakes or the following floods. These buildings are to be demolished soon. We are in a very difficult situation, facing this emergency.”

This school has been used most recently as: collection & distribution center for food items, medical supply, clothing & building materials. Dental & medical services. Psychological help for children & the elderly. People from the community, all the brave students, and teaching body have helped as a volunteer team during these very tough times.
