Aye Carumba!

If you love authentic Mexican food, our friends of Golden String had the opportunity to enjoy some great food and donate money back to Golden String! Our friends at El Vallarta were so generous and agreed to give 10% of food sales back to Golden String if you mentioned you were there to support Golden String. The generosity did not stop there. El Vallarta allowed us to bring in celebrity bartenders for the night and put a few drinks specials on the menu! With the help of our friends Danny Catullo, Casey Malone, Mike Humes, John McNally, Tony Santangelo, and Louie Kennedy bartending, they were able to raise almost $300 for Golden String. Along with the help of the bartenders, we received donations from El Vallarta, Touch the Moon Candy Saloon, Joe Gallagher’s Lunch Bucket, Golden String Radio, The Cleveland Browns and other sponsors we have assembled some baskets to raffle off. For $1 you can purchase a ticket to win the Touch the Moon basket that includes a $20 gift certificate to El Vallarta and a $10 gift certificate to Joe Gallagher’s Lunch Bucket. For $5 you can purchase a ticket to win Golden String Radio t-shirts, cozies, flasks, Touch the Moon goodies, and The Cleveland Browns autographed Johnny Manziel Jersey.

Even if you don’t like Mexican food, please stop out and buy some raffle tickets and have a drink. All proceeds raised from the event will be given to Golden String!!If you would like to purchase any of the raffle tickets please stop by one of the Purple Cat locations or the ISLE office.

If you have questions about the event feel free to email!! If you weren’t able to stop by in October, please join us on Monday November 3, 2014 to do it all over again! All winners will be drawn for the baskets and 50/50 on Monday, November 3, 2014
