Thank you for joining our movement in 2018 and 2019 raising $20,000 for our Spotlight Foundation initiatives and partner charities here in Denver & Boulder!
We are taking a break this season, but looking forward to sharing tacos together for a good cause again in the near future. Please stay tuned for when we relaunch.
We wish you all health and safety during this Coronavirus pandemic.
-Taco Passport Team
The Taco Passport is a Spotlight Foundation fundraising initiative. It was created with the goal of connecting communities, local restaurants and customers beyond their current reach, while raising money for remarkable charities. The Taco Passport is a booklet compiled of 2-for-1 coupons from some of the best local taquerias, restaurants, and food trucks in town. Some will be immediately recognizable to all, some will be brand new to the community and some will have a cult following. All of them have one thing in common: Delicious tacos! 100% of the proceeds will be going to charities.
It was Lázaro’s lifelong dream to visit the USA! So we decided when his Visa was approved to design an epic trip he’d never forget. Lázaro flew into San Francisco where Ben drove out from Colorado to pick him up for a road trip! Ben and Lázaro met up with Matt, and for the first time in 13 years the 3 amigos were back together! The road trip then traveled from LA, to Vegas and back to Colorado. Lázaro had a lot of first times… saw the biggest buildings he’d every seen in his life in Las Vegas, even gambling $2 in a casino slot machine! He touched snow for the first time, went to his first major league baseball game, and hiked up Mount Sanitas in Boulder. It was a wonderful adventure and it only deepened all of our friendships with Lázaro and inspired us even more to keep working hard on our project to improve children’s lives and education in Nicaragua, with plans to grow our project and build it into a registered non profit!
