On October 26, 2013, Rotary Club of Playa del Carmen Seaside will host their first annual Charity Golf Tournament, The Rotary Seaside Golf Classic, at the Grand Coral Golf Course. The tournament, beginning at 8:00am, will be a “Texas Scramble” with a Gala Prize ceremony and luncheon following. Proceeds from the event will benefit Seaside Rotary Chapter ongoing programs and initiatives.
In its short existence, “Seaside” has partnered with and supported KKiS – Keeping Kids in School,Casa Yoliguani, a facility for young unwed mothers and mothers-to-be, and Christmas Dreams, an organization that provides Christmas gifts for children who would otherwise do without. The club has also worked together with the local Municipal government to spruce up a local park and recreation space. “While our countries of origin may differ, our common bond is a desire to “give back” to the community we’ve chosen to call home.” explained Seaside Rotary Club President Doug Morgan “The Rotary Club of Playa del Carmen Seaside is all about helping kids. The proceeds from this event will help us to improve the lives of many local children.”
The tournament organizing committee is making available a variety of sponsorship opportunities. Individuals and local businesses are encouraged to support this charitable event with monetary donations and by providing prizes for the longest putt, longest drive, straightest drive and closest to the pin contests. Sponsors will receive maximum publicity throughout the Riviera Maya in print publications, social media and of course at the tournament. This is sure to be an exciting event with excellent attendance providing excellent exposure for participating businesses.

Playa Animal Rescue Comedy Fundraiser – July 4
Laughter is the best medicine. And in this case, it’s good for the dogs as well! Comedy Below Sea Level is doing a special fundraiser show for Playa Animal Rescue (PAR) on Thursday, July 4th at 8pm at La Patrona Jam On. We’ve seen several of their shows and always have a great time!
Tickets are 150 pesos at the door or 100 pesos in advance. You can purchase tickets this Saturday at PAR during their Spa & Play Day. Funds raised will go towards the purchase of a hemogram, a blood testing machine, that will allow PAR to quickly and easily diagnose incoming dogs. It will save them loads of money and time in the long run.

Taste of Playa is a culinary event in Playa del Carmen that celebrates the creativity and cultural influences of chefs throughout the Riviera Maya. The event promotes the unique culinary perspectives of local chefs, highlights new event venues that attract a variety of participants and coordinates the efforts of local businesses and municipal governments. Taste of Playa has captured the attention of international media by showing the spirit of multi-cultural cooperation that defines the modern Riviera Maya.
The event is scheduled for November 18, 2012 in the Parque Fundadores from 3 pm to 9 pm. Local businesses and sponsors will support the operations of this food focused event, leaving chefs free to concentrate on the execution of their creations. Government and media support will promote this festival to local residents and tourists alike, inviting everyone to sample creations that normally they may not have the means or opportunity to enjoy.
In the spirit of community, a portion of the event proceeds will be used to assist a not-for-profit food or clean water program in the area. The goal of the committee is to help develop and sustain community based initiatives that have a positive effect on the residents of Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya.
