Don Quijote Buffet Benefit for Homeless December 7

Sunday, December 7 from noon to 5pm, Carlos Rivero continues a nearly three decade old tradition with the Restaurante don Quijote buffet benefit this year to benefit Housing Opportunities. Carlos and his staff prepare and serve a tremendous buffet featuring a variety of traditional don Quiojote items and some specials for this event. Don Quijote donates the food and its staff donate their time so all the money raised can benefit Housing Opportunities.

Additionally support to make the event happen is provided by the Valpo High School Spanish Club. Leading up to the event they sell tickets and talk to area merchants to collect items for the silent auction, door prizes, and raffles. At the event, they host, serve, clear tables, and sell tickets for the raffles.

Since Carlos started this event in the 1990’s, it has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help homeless families in Porter County.

Tickets for the event are available at Restaurante don Quijote. Each $35 ticket includes the buffet, entertainment, entry into the door prize drawing, and the chance to participate in the silent auctions and raffle.

The event provides a wonderful portrait of our community coming together to share a meal, some fellowship, and help the homeless in our community.
