Toys for Tots

The Navy League of Puerto Vallarta has been organizing fundraising activities for seven years to buy toys for needy children in the city and surrounding areas. Every centavo that is raised from an annual golf tournament and gala dinner dance is spent on toys. The golf course and the Marriott Hotel donate their facilities for these events; many other local businesses and individuals contribute prizes, time and money.

The toys are distributed on Dia de los Reyes, the Three Kings Day, which is the principal day for gift giving in Mexico.

2,500 soccer balls, basketballs and volleyballs were inflated on Tuesday and 8,800 toys were handed over to smiling children today. They came running.
