The finalists are all competing for a $10,000 pesos cash prize and the opportunity to appear at a show in one of the larger theater venues in Puerto Vallarta.

More importantly though, money raised from ticket sales and sponsorships go to support Refugio Infantantil Santa Esperanza (RISE). RISE was founded in 2001. Since then, RISE has been home to hundreds of children. Some live there for months and others for years.  Today RISE operates with a team of 20+ employees and 30 volunteers, providing all of the necessities for the shelter to operate efficiently while keeping child development, safety and health as their top priorities

The finals will take place on Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. at Teatro Vallarta.
