Get ready to spice up your autumn evenings with the most exciting DICP event of the season - the Tequila & Quesadillas Fall Fundraiser!
On October 5th, from 6 pm to 8 pm, our venue transforms into a haven of lively music, delectable flavors, and spirited games. Join us for an unforgettable evening of Pachanga-style festivities that promise to tantalize your taste buds and make a difference in the community.
Tequila Pairing and Quesadilla Extravaganza:
Prepare to embark on a culinary journey that marries traditional flavors with a modern twist. Six carefully curated quesadilla stations will showcase a symphony of tastes, each paired with a tequila mixed drink that complements its unique profile.
The featured chef for this event will be Charleen Ramirez-Mares, who spent 18 years as a staff member of DICP as teacher then principal of La Academia. During her tenure, Charleen worked hard to ensure her students felt seen, loved and valued by introducing activities that celebrated culture – world travel, community events, cooking classes, and even a tamalada at Christmas. Her return to DICP as a recent culinary graduate of Emily Griffith Technical College marks a special merging of two things she loves – the Parish and cooking. We couldn't be more excited to infuse her own cooking style at her Quesadilla & Mezcal tasting station at this new event. We look forward toCharleen bringing her unique blend of heart and expertise to our community once again!
And a big thank you to our tequila sponsors!
As the sun sets, the games begin! Engage in friendly competition and immerse yourself in the vibrant world of Lotería. This Mexican bingo-style game is a cultural touchstone that promises both excitement and a sense of camaraderie. Will you be the lucky one to call out "Lotería" and claim your prize?
