This coming Saturday, December 3, the Vallarta Yacht Club and its volunteer group will celebrate the 16th Great Chili Cook-Off and 4th Taste of Nuevo Vallarta—a culinary, charity event that will bring together more than 20 restaurants and that aims to support the local non profit organizations International Friendship Club and the Navy League.

The event will take place in the Marina Nuevo Vallarta boardwalk from 3:30 pm – 7:00 pm. Each restaurant will prepare a stand featuring food and beverage specials, and attendees will be able to purchase 30-peso tickets in exchange for their favorite grub. Chili will be the main ingredient in most dishes but restaurants will also feature their own specialties. The music of the Trio Sunset band will enliven the event.

All of this year’s proceeds will benefit the International Friendship Club’s Cleft Palate Program and the Navy League’s Toys for Tots Program. The event’s 2014 and 2015 editions raised over $60,000 MXN and 90,000 MXN respectively.
