International Friendship Club
The IFC, or in Spanish Club Internacional de la Amistad, is a great place to meet people if you’re new in town. For those interested in volunteer work the IFC is an outstanding prospect. The IFC has over one hundred members, who work to fund surgeries and several charities.
The IFC Home Tours are a pastime we highly recommend if you’ve not yet taken the opportunity. From November to April, generous home owners open their doors and privates spaces, with trips leaving twice a week (Tuesday and Wednesday) for the Sea Monkey restaurant on the Malecón at Calle Aquiles Serdan. You can order tickets ahead at ifctoursforvallarta.com. You can also offer your own home for participation in the Home Tours.
The IFC Home Tours are only one way the IFC raises money. All funds go to the IFC’s caring programs, chiefly among them the Cleft Palate Surgery and Clinic program, but also dental hygiene and educational programs, general financial assistance, and several Mexican charities that reach out to families in need. Among the areas that receive aid are the Clinica Santa Barbara de Rehabilitacion, a rehab center; Casa Hogar Maximo Cornejo, an orphanage; SETAC, our AIDS organization in Mexico; Pasito de Luz, a daycare for children in need of physical therapy and special attention; a new program at Biblioteca Los Mangos for parents and children to learn and increase reading skills; ant-venom and other medical supplies for communities with minimal medical services.
There are many IFC fundraising events throughout high season, ending with a grand brunch at a chosen restaurant in Puerto Vallarta, with a variety of local entertainment and a fabulous raffle. Prizes for the raffle are donated by many businesses around town, including but not limited to retail items and jewelry from local jewelers, passes of sailing and fishing trips, shows at local venues, massage and spa treatments, music and dance classes.
The IFC in Puerto Vallarta welcomes volunteers with professional expertise in medical, educational, and other fields and is always seeking supplies and equipment. All are welcome.
As a member of the Puerto Vallarta IFC, which is open to all who are looking for the chance to help with humanitarian causes, you will also attend some wonderful and entertaining social, educational and cultural activities, and receive significant discounts from restaurants and merchants in Puerto Vallarta.
The IFC Clubhouse is located above the HSBC bank where Insurgentes, Libertad and Miramar streets meet, on the north side of the Rio Cuale. Hours are 9 am – 3 pm, Monday – Friday, October – April, and May to July Monday – Thursday 9 am – 1:30 pm.
