On Friday December 14, 2012 BuyPlaya Real Estate Advisors and FurnitureMEX will host a Holiday Zumbathon to support the efforts of Christmas Dreams Playa. This fun community event will take place in the sports facility located on Av. 20 and CTM, beginning at 6:00pm and ending at 8:00pm.

Zumba for Charity in Playa del Carmen"We have invited Zumba instructors from around the world to participate in this Zumba marathon which we hope will become and annual event." said Zumbathon organizer Mary Martinez "The cost to participate is just 25 mn because we want everyone to be able to join in the fun! 100% of the funds collected are going to the charity."

Since 2000, a group of kind-hearted Playa del Carmen residents has helped local non-profits connect with those who need a little extra attention during the Holiday season. In years past, this group has helped organize the collection and distribution of thousands of Christmas presents for disadvantaged and special needs children. The group also provides warm blankets and essential non-perishable food items for at risk families and vulnerable elders in the community. During the 2011 Holiday season, over $86,000 mn worth of presents, school supplies and essentials were distributed by Christmas Dreams Playa.

BuyPlaya and FurnitureMEX staff will be on hand receiving donations of toys, warm blankets and non-perishable food items to distribute to Playa del Carmen's most disadvantaged families.
