Don Quijote Restaurante Hosts Benefit Dinner for VNA Meals on Wheels of Porter County

By: VNA Hospice NWI Last Updated: July 5, 2022

On August 14 from 2-5pm, Don Quijote Restaurante, with support from United Way of Northwest Indiana, will host a dinner to benefit local seniors through VNA Hospice NWI’s Meals on Wheels of Porter County program. Don Quijote owners Carlos Rivero and Elena Jambrina will donate event proceeds to help seniors and other homebound residents maintain
their independence.

The dinner menu will include a shrimp appetizer, redfish with salad, choice of chicken or vegetarian paella, assorted desserts, and unlimited wine throughout the meal. A 50/50 raffle and auction will also be held to benefit the Meals on Wheels of Porter County program. Each individual ticket purchase of $125 will provide a VNA Meals on Wheels client with 1 month of hot lunches.

“We are thankful for the partnership of Carlos and Elena at Don Quijote and the support of United Way of Northwest Indiana,” said Bob Franko, President & CEO of VNA Hospice NWI. “This isn’t the first time they’ve pulled through for us. Their love and generosity toward seniors in
our community continues to inspire and bring people together. The VNA Meals on Wheels program wouldn’t have the impact it does in Porter County without their support.”

The VNA Meals on Wheels of Porter County program helps seniors and other homebound residents maintain independence by providing a nutritional, hot lunch and optional light supper. VNA provides nearly $100,000 in community care through the Meals on Wheels of Porter
County program each year.To learn more, visit vnanwi.org/services/vna-meals-on-wheels.
