CELEBRATING GIVING THROUGH OUR ANNUAL FASHION SHOW
In the winter of 2002, a group of women golfing friends decided it would be fun to put on a fashion show. Little did they know, it would become the premier social event in all of Nayarit, Mexico; an afternoon of fun, fashions and fund raising. Eagerly anticipated by all, the 400 tickets now sell out in just two weeks!
As the event grew in popularity, the group of organizers realized they needed to become official and they needed to identify charitable projects to support.
So Mujeres a Mujeres (Women to Women) was born and the education of young women became the focus of the fund raising. The organization operates under the umbrella of The Jaltemba Foundation to meet the fiscal and legal requirements in Mexico.
The Mission Statement for the group became the following: To raise funds to assist women and children in the Jaltemba Bay area.
As of November 2022:
- We have 17 young women enrolled at local universities
- 87 local women have received scholarships
- These young women graduated in various areas such as social work, teaching, medicine, dentistry, and law
- Many are now working in our local area.
The mandate to allot 90% of Fashion Show profits to Education was adopted. Various other worthy Mujeres a Mujeres Programs and Projects were identified and supported on a yearly basis.
There are many talented local designers in Jaltemba Bay and it was also the goal of the group to provide an event for them to showcase their talents.
Mujeres a Mujeres and the Fashion Show itself are run completely by Volunteers. A Volunteer executive committee organizes the event each year and approximately 100 other Volunteers participate as models, servers, bartenders, auction assistants, 50/50 tickets sales, clean-up and security. We couldn’t do it without them and are eternally grateful.
