Make-A-Wish Mexico will be celebrating their 8th Annual "Big Jack's Barbeque" Fundraiser Food Festival at Fidencio's Restaurant on Los Muertos Beach on Friday, February 8th from 6-9 pm.

Big Jack's Barbeque is becoming a Make-A-Wish tradition thanks to Big Jack, who has been coming to Puerto Vallarta every year to offer his work and talents, to the delight of those of us who enjoy his outstanding cuisine, and in support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Puerto Vallarta.

The cost to attend the All-You-Can-Eat feast is $350 pesos in advance or $400 pesos at the door. All proceeds will go directly to the terminally ill young children that Make-A-Wish serves. The menu reads as a "Food Festival," so bring your appetites and enjoy such scrumptious dishes as:

Roast Prime Rib Carving Station
Texas Style Pulled Pork
Jumbo Saffron & Garlic Shrimp
Stuffed Shitake Mushroom Chicken Breast
Pasta a la Vodka
Eggplant Rollatini
Pork Tenderloin w/Port Wine Sauce
Swedish Meatballs

Beer, wine, Sangria and sodas are also included in the ticket-donation price. There will also be raffles and other surprises.

This dinner is a great opportunity to gather together to share a great meal and enjoy a good time, while at the same time supporting the mission of Make-A-Wish Mexico. All proceeds from the event will help fulfill the dreams of boys and girls from all over Mexico that need the strength and encouragement to face their illnesses and/or the resulting long-term treatments at such a young age.

Since its foundation, Make-A-Wish has granted more than 187,000 wishes worldwide, and each day many more wishes are added to the list. It is for this reason that events as generous as this are of extreme importance to the foundation and its ability to carry out the wishes of these unfortunate kids.
