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.
WITW 93.5, Valparaiso’s Christian Radio station, is proud to announce a new partnership and welcome a new host/show to the WITW Family.
Dion Welton – author, speaker, and radio host – will be on WITW twice daily with his nationally syndicated program “Free on the Inside.” The show airs Monday through Friday at 7:30am and 6pm. His 2012 book Are We Really Forgiven, Dion takes on the question that many of us ask many times – can we truly be forgiven. The book gives hope through something only God can provide and a grace which, if we let us, binds us up in the in-comprehensive nature of its power.
Dion speaker who travels country-wide, including a number of stops each year to speak to groups right here in Valparaiso, including Valparaiso University.
Dion’s radio show will give you hope, some answers, and some challenges each day. We hope you find it uplifting and a positive addition to our locally focused programming.
The finishing touches are being put on a new archive site for our Testimony Tuesday recordings. We hear from listeners regularly requesting the capacity to listen back to our guests. With our limited resources and staffing, it has taken a bit to put together. A separate site has been created and the Testimony Tuesday’s we have are being uploaded.
We have saved many of them in .MP3 format. We have a few on video. We will post the new site as soon as we get a few of the shows of for you.
