Salsarita’s Fresh Cantina is partnering with the Charlotte Mecklenburg Middle School sports program and the M2 Foundation for their inaugural Cinco de Mayo Taco Smash.
On Thursday, May 5, 2011 from 12pm-3pm at the corner of Trade and Tryon St. in Uptown Charlotte, The Taco Smash will feature local celebrities and city officials competing in a taco eating competition to help raise funds. On hand will also be the mascots from the local colleges and sports teams as well as cheerleaders from the Bobcats and the Charlotte checkers. With an expected crowd of over 500 people, The WFNZ “Bustin’ Loose with Frank and Moose” show and other local media outlets will air live coverage of the event from the plaza.
The CMS Middle School Sports Program was saved this year thru donations from various businesses and yet we face the reality of the sports program being cut again for the 2011/2012 school year. Sports play an invaluable role in the lives of middle school children by helping build character, encourage physical fitness and motivate them to do well in school to meet the sports participation requirements.
The M2 Foundation was started in 1999 by retired NFL wide receiver, Mushin (Moose) Mohammad to enhance the educational, physical, and spiritual development of children. The M2 Foundation is committed to motivating youths to overcome barriers through planned sessions and workshops, with a goal to help young people improve educational achievements and develop confidence for becoming healthy, productive adults.
For those in Charlotte, please come out and support these organizations!
