Ricardo’s Hosts “Dine for the Cure” to Support Nevada Cancer Institute

July 19, 2010 by  

Ricardo’s Mexican Restaurant invites you to raise your glass and dine on your favorite Mexican favorites, as they host their yearly fundraising dinner for Nevada Cancer Institute on Thursday, July 22.

The charitable event is from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and showcases Ricardo’s signature menu featuring contemporary Mexican favorites including Tacos de Pescado o Asada; grilled halibut tacos topped with fresh cabbage and a creamy cilantro sauce and a Ricardo’s favorite since 1980, Pollo de Ricardo’s – a wine-sautéed chicken breast topped with tomato, avocado and melted cheese, presented in a tortilla basket. A wide assortment of exotic, all-fruit margaritas are also available.

“Ricardo’s is thrilled, especially in these times, to be able to support Nevada Cancer Institute, and raise much needed funds for their state-of-the-art medical center that continues to provide hope to those battling cancer in our community,” stated Ricardo’s owner, Bob Ansara.

Ricardo’s will donate 30% of all sales (including dinner and alcohol) for this evening to Nevada Cancer Institute. All are invited to show their support for an important cause and to fight cancer.

“Nevada Cancer Institute relies on the support of dedicated community partners like Ricardo’s to help us offer the cutting-edge cancer treatment and research that Nevadans deserve,” said Dr. John C. Ruckdeschel, NVCI’s Director and CEO, Murren Family Distinguished Director’s Chair. “Together we are a much stronger force in the fight against cancer.”
