Join us at Gregoria Cob Cob Elementary School for a Day of Service & Cultural Connection!
In partnership with Fundación RCD, we will visit the Gregoria Cob Cob school on Event Day 3 (Monday, January 16th) of Panic en la Playa Once to join the students and teachers to put the finishing touches on a classroom project.

2022 RECAP

It’s now been a decade of Good People doing good things at Panic en la Playa and that tradition continues.  At Uno we raised enough cash to plant some trees to shade a local school. At Diez we raised enough to BUILD a school with the auction yielding a record-setting $82,240! The fans' kindness was also on full display at Sunny’s golf outing, and at Bingo with Southern Avenue. A special thanks to everyone who came out to the Day of Service sponsored by Mike's Amazing. Together we jam-packed over three hundred food bags (made from upcycled Hard Rock Hotel uniforms) that will stock the pantries of our local neighbors in need. The Good People of Panic fuel Positive Legacy’s mission and it’s tough to overstate the cumulative impact they've had on this community over the years. 



Positive Legacy first attended Panic en la Playa Uno in 2012. Collectively over the nine years of the event, Positive Legacy has raised a staggering $415,000 with the help of Panic fans, musicians and artisans!


Funds raised at PELP have supported:

  • Xcacel Sea Turtle Sanctuary to protect sea turtle nesting grounds

  • Flora, Fauna y Cultura for ecological conservation and community action 

  • Dreams for Mayan Children to encourage passing down Mayan traditions

  • Punta Cana Ecological Foundation for the Fuentes de Vida project, building a natural wastewater treatment facility 

  • Onda Encantada School for building a new facility, the Phoenix School

  • A cleanup project in the park of Domingo Maiz Barrio in Veron

  • Planting trees at the David Alfonso Sequero Primary School in Puerto Morelos

  • Widespread Panic’s Tunes for Tots


The Charity Auction always proves to be a highlight of the event for fans, musicians and staff. We’re extremely grateful to everyone who has donated an item, bid on an item, and best of all, won an item in support of our community projects. 


Other highlights of the event are the annual Charity Golf Tournament with Sunny Ortiz, Mexican Carnival, SetList Pool, Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament with Ivan Neville, WSMFP BINGO and our latest addition, the 0.05K Fun Run. Thanks to everyone who has participated in activities benefiting Positive Legacy’s projects through Mexico and the Caribbean!
