Frida Bistro – Finally, save the date – Saturday April 18 (5-10 p.m.) – for something special at one of SLC’s best Mexican restaurants. Owner Jorge Fierro is hosting a very special fundraiser for the Utah Tibetan Community Center in the Frida Bistro/Rico Brand Warehouse.
Admission is $150 per person and guests will be treated to a unique Tibetan and Mexican fusion dinner – with all proceeds to be donated to the Utah Tibetan Community Center. More information to follow on an intriguing sounding menu as we have it.
The goal of the event is to raise cash to both maintain and retrofit the community center that facilitate and supports local Tibetans’ educational, economic, health, social needs, and preserve Tibetan Culture; also to prepare for the October 2015 visit of His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama
