LELA the donating pig helps the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
October has brought us Snowbird season and more cruise ships coming into port. Our Local Show on Monday has started of with ever increasing numbers. We enjoy showing all our guests the interesting smells and flavors that Mexico has to offer. So if you’re in town, come and join us! Reservations are a must! Just go to our website for more information.
The cause for LELA in October was the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. We had almost the double amount of shows comparing to September, so we were very happy to collect a total sum of $477 dollars!
In November we will be collecting for the Lupus Research Institute. This cause is very dear to our heart, because Dancing Chef Stephanie’s sister suffers from Lupus. Lupus is a chronic and often disabling autoimmune disease. Estimates indicate that more than 1.5 million Americans have lupus.
The Lupus Research Institute (LRI) is the only nonprofit organisation in the US that’s dedicated to research in lupus. It was founded in 2000 by people with this devastating illness and their families in collaboration with the country’s leading scientists. LRI sends nearly 94 cents of every dollar contributed straight to the scientists in their laboratories searching for answers to lupus.
During each month we always come in contact with people who have a special interest in the cause for LELA. It’s very rewarding to see impact LELA has. The more money we raise, the closer we get to finding a cure for Lupus.
