383--Mexico: Pirates for Pupils 2007
@ CherieSpotting     Apr 03 2007 - 11:08 PST
cherie writes: Over 75 “pirates” aboard 10 sea-worthy vessels made their way to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico last week to raise money for the local children of Punta Mita, Mexico in the 4th Annual “Pirates for Pupils Spinnaker Run.”

Old sea dogs climbed aboard cats and sailed to Punta Mita in search of booty. Pirates swaggered up the picturesque beach searching for cold brew and warm grub. To avoid getting scurvy, the thirsty pirates made sure to squeeze plenty of lime in their mugs of grog. Finding no buried treasure, the pirates opened their pockets and raised over $2000 which will be divided between a special needs school in El Pitillal, the local kindergarten class and the health clinic in Punta Mita.

The gang of rowdy pirates feasted at El Dorado Restaurant and then rounded up their crews for the sail back to Paradise Village. Before the bilge rats and buxom beauties were rounded up with a waving cutlass, the local children of Punta Mita paraded around the restaurant in costumes. A kindergarten queen and king thanked everyone for their generous donations to the local Mexican school. With their pockets empty and their bellies full, the pirates made their way back to their ships and prepared to head back to Paradise.
