Since Hurricane Harvey hit Texas, people across the country have been looking for ways to help their fellow Americans in need.
Locally, a number of Fresnans have found creative ways to raise money for those affected by the disaster. Eddie’s Bakery Cafe is selling “Texas-sized” cookies, with proceeds benefiting the American Red Cross. Author Jaime Horio of The Fresnerd is donating 100% of his book sales to Houston charities.
And some local taco truck owners are coming together to do their part, as well.
On Tuesday, Sept. 5, these business owners will gather at Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Co., along with some local musicians, to raise money for the Red Cross.
All you have to do to help out is show up and eat tacos, something we Fresnans are very, very good at.
With live music from:
• 40 Watt Hype
• DJ Green Giant
And dessert from:
• Pops Emporium
Tacos For Houston is a collaborative effort between the organizers of Taco Truck Throwdown, Tacos, Brews & Jams, Tioga-Sequoia Brewing Co., AudioFina Sound & Lighting, and Fresno Strong.
One dollar from every taco sold will go the American Red Cross Central Valley fund-raising efforts. Tioga-Sequoia also will be donating a portion of beer sales, and the Red Cross will be on hand to collect donations as well.
The event will run from 5 to 9:30 p.m. Admission is free, and children are welcome. Follow the event page for Tacos for Houston here.
I love where I live, and I also love what I do. I'm lucky to be able to work in a profession in which I get to build relationships; one that has me meeting new people each and every day and helping them to build new lives in my beloved city. I'm lucky enough to work in a profession in which I can marry cutting-edge technologies and marketing techniques to good, old-fashioned, nose-to-the-grindstone work. I am lucky enough to work in a profession that allows me to work as an advocate for my clients; to use every tool at my disposal to get a job done well for them, and with as little stress and expense as possible.
I love my city. I love my job. One inspires my excellence for the other.
Fresno? I say FresYES
