Benefit for Casa Hogar – Havana Nights

No one wants to miss the Charity Night on February 4th to benefit the children of Casa Hogar. If you can’t get to Cuba in the near future, this event should be on your agenda. The evening will begin at 6:30 pm, in time to catch the panoramic sunset. Villa Bahia, a private luxury resort on the South Shore of Puerto Vallarta hosts Havana Nights and we plan to pull out the best threads. Occasions to dress up in Puerto Vallarta are always met with great anticipation.

Casa Hogar Máximo Conejo, established in 1993 in Puerto Vallarta is a home for children in need of shelter and care. They range from infants to late teens. Some have been abused, are victims of domestic situations, or their parents simply cannot afford to provide for them. This institution relies on donations and volunteers; a benefit such as Havana Nights will raise an appreciated amount of money to help sustain the current forty-two children in attendance. Casa Hogar, which loosely translates to “a house is a home,” takes a lot of pride in those children who have moved on and done well in life. Provided with more than basic care, these kids also learn to focus on education and their future.

At the courtesy of food and entertainment, Havana Nights will transport guests from Puerto Vallarta to Cuba for the duration of the evening. A five-course Cuban meal will be served from the beautiful kitchen of Villa Bahia. Music will be provided by the Young Opera of Guadalajara (Opera Joven de Guadalajara), performing arias from famous operas such as Carmen and Turandot. They will also sing traditional Mexican songs, including the favorite Besame Mucho. Ernesto Lecuona will perform, joined by a Cuban music group. Bring your dancing shoes.

The night will include raffles, door prizes and grand surprises to add to the merriment and it wouldn’t be a night in Havana without Cuban cigars being offered for sale to take home after the show!  

Que es cómo es.

Here are a few of our guiding principals at Boardwalk Realty:

“First of all, we really want to get to know you,”   When we know you, we can tailor home tours to your tastes.”

Secondly, there’s the legal side of owning in Mexico. “Besides our own experience, we can save you a lot of time and money by offering you complimentary consultations with our partner attorneys.  The nuances of how you buy here can save you a lot of money when you sell. It’s important to know what you’re doing on the purchase so that when you sell you can best use any tax advantages. This service is free to our clients and can be invaluable.”

Both partners agree that the most important element of Boardwalk Realty is our ongoing service and commitment to our clients after the sale.  We are both passionate about protecting the investment and security of our clients.  “Our clients become our friends, we see them socially, and we treat them as we would like to be treated ourselves”, adds Mike.

Boardwalk Realty Puerto Vallarta represents buyers and sellers of real estate in the entire Bay of Banderas area, and will soon add a rental and property management division.
