2011 Toy Shopping
   Below is a photo of two special persons who held their own fundraising pool party and BBQ last summer at their good friend Cookie's home in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada.  They had been to Puerto Vallarta before and wanted to help collect money for the kids presents.  Patrick & Rob came to the Cafe Roma Pizza Party especially to deliver the money collected for Christmas presents to Art Fumerton.   Until their contribution to our fund, we didn't have enough money collected for each and every child at the school.
  With the C$ 500 collected by Patrick & Rob from Kamloops, BC, in Canada,
we 
were finally able to buy a present for each child.
    Below is a slideshow of the fun we volunteers had while shopping for the almost 280 children's toys at the local Soriana store in Puerto Vallarta.  The manager at this store has been a great supporter of what we've been doing and gave us 10% off on our toy purchases and up to 20% on some sporting good toys.  That made all the difference.  These savings pushed our buying power from C$ 3,766 to almost $ 4,200.  That extra made all the difference.  Plus we had a ball picking toys we knew the kids would love.
