More than 35 artists from across the Banderas Bay region are coming together to support the Corazón de Niña children's home in an "Artists for Orphans Garden Party" fundraiser on Sunday, March 11, from 2:00-5:00 pm at La Hacienda de Carlota Restaurant.
Corazón de Niña opened in 2012 to offer a stable, nurturing environment for children from broken homes, dysfunctional families, and other unfortunate circumstances.
Rather than housing the children in an institutional setting, Corazón de Niña provides a real home with house parents and separate residences for boys and girls. Counseling, education and long-term support are provided to help the children grow into successful adults who are able to support themselves and make their own contributions to the community.
"We so appreciate the efforts by the artists to support us in giving our children opportunities to grow up in ways they most likely would not have," says Melissa Canez, the home's Director and co-founder. "In turn, we invite everyone in the greater Puerto Vallarta area to come and support the artists at this wonderful event, while also supporting the children in our home."
The Artists for Orphans Garden Party will feature live acoustic music by Piel Canela, renowned Mexican folk, flamenco, and gypsy guitarists. La Hacienda de Carlota will serve tapas and provide a no-host full bar.
