There is a very special event happening at The Salem Convention Center this week. Friends of Pimpollo (pronounced pim-poy-o), a non-profit volunteer organization that develops education-based programs in Southern Mexico, is hosting their Sixth Annual Cinco de Mayo Luncheon.
Friends of Pimpollo is very close to our hearts. Many staff members at The Salem Convention Center, The Grand Hotel in Salem, Bentley’s Grill and The Grand Hotel at Bridgeport have supported this organization in numerous capacities for many years and have seen first hand the enormous impact Friends of Pimpollo has had on these communities.
Don’t miss this chance to enjoy a complimentary lunch and learn more about the amazing work this organization is doing for children and families in Southern Mexico. The theme of this celebration is “Building Dreams Together” and will feature traditional Oaxacan cuisine, live music and special guest speakers who will educate attendees about Friends of Pimpollo Programs:
- Pimpollo Home for Children in Juchitan, Oaxaca
- Vicente Guerrero Community outside of Oaxaca City, Oaxaca
- Oaxaca Kids Can in Vicente Guerrero, Oaxaca
- Education Scholarship Program in Chiapas and Oaxaca, Mexico
There is no charge to attend but donations will gladly be accepted to help the group continue their mission to transform lives in this impoverished region. The event will start promptly at 12 p.m. and will end by 1 p.m.
