The SETAC Community Center is holding its second annual Red Ribbon Gala at Mantamar Beach Club on Wednesday, December 5. Tom Viola, executive director of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS arranged for two highly-talented Broadway performers to come entertain the crowd at the Gala. Event organizer Robert Schley from Mexico Event Design recently interviewed Mr. Viola in-depth about his organization and their commitment to the local Puerto Vallarta community.

How long have you been active with Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS? I’ve been a part of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS since its inception. In 1988, with many of its own members facing dire circumstances, the Council of Actors’ Equity–the union for actors and stage managers–set out to fight HIV and AIDS within its own community. Equity Fights AIDS was created as a committee of Actors’ Equity.

Hospital San Javier Vallarta

On Friday, November 23rd, 2018, San Javier Marina Hospital celebrated its 18th anniversary of operations in Puerto Vallarta.

To commemorate it, the local and foreign community, as well as patients and doctors, met in the hospital to enjoy a cocktail, which led to the cutting of the ribbon that opened the Galería de Sonrisas (Gallery of Smiles), an initiative that collects testimonials from patients with extraordinary case studies, where they share their stories of hope.

It is a temporary exhibition located in the main lobby of the Hospital San Javier Marina, which aims to share the philosophy of humane treatment that the institution has implemented since its founding in 2000 in Puerto Vallarta.

The Galería de Sonrisas is open to the general public and can be visited 24/7.
