Once again Catholic Charities' Semi-Annual All You Can Eat Tacos Fundraiser was a successful and fun-filled event.
As I sit here thinking of the taco night, I’m recalling the colorful
flyer – skeletons dressed in masquerade apparel invited me to attend. The theme of the fundraiser (at Miguel’s
Mexican Restaurant) was Dia de los Muertos – A Celebration of Life. The event included a raffle, music and a
costume contest. Each time the event
draws people from the community to gather together and enjoy music, friendship
and fantastic (all you can eat) tacos; the event: Catholic Charities’ All You
Can Eat Tacos Fundraiser.
Catholic Charities runs the event twice a year, around Halloween and
Cinco de Mayo. Prepared for the
enthusiastic patrons, additional tables were set up outside to serve the over
populated restaurant. As usual, the
community (a few hundred people in attendance) had a wonderful time enjoying the
exciting atmosphere which included friends, varying costumes and raffle
prizes. However, people are hungry, and
although the food at Miguel’s is good, no one was there for burritos,
quesadillas or enchiladas. It’s all
about the tacos - that folded corn tortilla snack stuffed with chicken or beef. One aspect of this night that has always amazed
me is how so many people are served the tacos so fast; no one waits longer than
5 minutes before they’re given a plate of tacos.
Although the evening was enjoyed by many, some walked away with more than
just a full belly. Several people either
won a raffle prize or placed in the costume contest.
