Fiesta Blanca a Great Success !
P.V. Garden Club has become known for its annual elegant, high-end fundraiser. With prior events at Casa Chickie and Hacienda Palo Maria, expectations were high, but guarded for the new venue, Oscar’s Restaurant on the Isla Cuale. But the artistic gifts of Mike Laking, David Muck, and Nicholas Pinney resulted in a magical setting that matched the highest standards. White muslin curtains wafted softly in the breeze with hundreds of huge white paper camellias mounted throughout the dining hall.
Music during the cocktail hour on the lawn was provided by Pichakus Latin American folk musicians Carolina and Javiar. During the sit down dinner, La Boquita Musicians Silvia and Paolo played.
Oscar’s food and service were excellent. A silent auction had everyone enthusiastically bidding for items such as dinners at private homes, artwork, Vallarta experiences and dining at local restaurants. An anonymous donor pledged $5000 U.S. as a matching challenge, and many patrons and supporters of beautification stepped up to pledge. The evening was capped by dancing and celebration of all that the P.V. Garden club has accomplished. Thanks to everyone who helped!
