Enjoy a Tin Town Tacos treat and support Comox Valley Hospice Society on Saturday.

Tasty tacos support Comox Valley Hospice on Sept. 12

On Saturday, Sept. 12 at the Comox Valley Farmers’ Market, you can feel good about supporting an important local cause while also rewarding your taste buds.

Tin Town Tacos, the popular Mexican-inspired food cart, will donate all net proceeds from tacos sold between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. to the Comox Valley Hospice Society.

“I’m proud to host the third annual Tacos For Tenderness fundraising event at the Saturday Farmers’ Market,” says Tin Town Tacos owner and cook Fred Smith. “It’s a simple gesture of giving back to those who are doing really important end-of-life work. Their care and compassion touches everyone in the community in some way.”

Smith says he was inspired to support the Hospice Society, which provides care and resources to those who are facing death, grief and terminal illness, because of the invaluable support that hospice societies have shown to his loved ones in the past.

Terri Odeneal, executive director of the Hospice Society, was deeply grateful to hear that Tacos for Tenderness would take place for a third year in a row. “We are totally dependent on the generosity of this wonderful community to fund the compassionate care the Society has been providing Comox Valley families for over 25 years,” said Odeneal.

During the fundraiser, Tin Town Tacos’ regular menu will be available.

Bring your appetite, bring your friends, enjoy a plate of fresh tacos, and make a donation that will help make a lasting positive impact in people’s lives and memories.

 

The Tacos for Tenderness fundraiser for the Hospice Society happens Saturday, Sept. 12 from 9-12pm at the Farmers’ Market at the Exhibition Grounds.
