While the city celebrated Vallarta Pride 2015, Daiquiri Dick's restaurant took the party one step further and decided to give back to the community.

During the event the restaurant donated 25 percent of the $100 peso price of a Pink Mary cocktail to the SETAC Community Health Center in Puerto Vallarta. "This was a great way for us to donate to a worthy cause," says General Manager/Executive Chef Ignacio Uribe, "people always pass by the restaurant while going to the different events and it was easy to stop by for a cocktail, meal and snacks." The Pink Mary was a special cocktail created for Vallarta Pride and was a a combination of vodka, fresh watermelon juice and fresh mint.

Just over $1500 pesos was raised. It was used to buy baby formula which is distributed to mother's who have HIV so they can feed their babies. "It's a wonderful thing. I just love it," says Paco Aronja, Director of SETAC, "it is encouraging when local businesses decide to help us out, there is always a need for formula and this donation will feed one baby for almost three months."

In 2006 SETAC became the first medical outreach center in Mexico to be part of the CAPASITS (walk in center for the prevention and treatment of AIDS and sexually transmitted diseases) federal health care system. The SETAC staff outsources various services to the medical professionals in the CAPASITS network. This includes doctors, psychologists, social workers and dentists. The center also provides assistance to women with HIV and their children.
