Fundraiser for children of R.I.S.E

Warique Restaurant is hosting a Summer Benefit for the Refugio Infantil Santa Esperanza children’s shelter on July 19 from 6-10 pm.

Better known as R.I.S.E., the Refugio Infantil Santa Esperanza is a non-profit shelter for babies and children under the age of 14. Some of these children are orphans, but most come from unbearable situations having been abused, neglected or simply abandoned.

Since R.I.S.E. opened its doors in March 2001, five nuns (Madres) from the Order of Carmelites of Jesus of Nazareth have been looking after the children on a full-time basis. They are currently caring for around 50 children.

Operating funds for the shelter and providing for the children’s basic needs cost more than $5,000 USD per month not including the cost of education.

Dubbed ‘RISE with Education @ Warique,’ this fundraising event includes food, fun, and friendship with all proceeds to benefit the RISE education fund.

Come enjoy a wonderful evening that includes Warique’s gourmet menu, beverages, a raffle for great prizes, a 50/50 drawing and a silent auction all to support the children of R.I.S.E.

Tickets are available for $400 Pesos at Warique Restaurant, located at Aquiles Serdan #280 in Colonia Emiliano Zapata, or by calling Ryan here in Puerto Vallarta at 322-134-1405.

The shelter is located at R. Flores Magon #251, Col. Benito Juárez in Puerto Vallarta, and welcomes visitors daily from 11 am to 1 pm and 4 pm to 6 pm.
