Taco Night was a Success

Posted on 11/10/2014 by

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.
