Organizers of the 8th Annual Sabor a Cabo (Flavors of Cabo) food and wine festival have announced that the Dec. 1, 2013, event raised more than $90,000 to benefit local institutions and charities such as the volunteer fire department and Red Cross in Los Cabos, Mexico, where emergency services must be provided on limited funding. Martin Engineering provided support this year by purchasing two VIP tables at the event, contributing $18,000 to the cause and treating 20 guests to an unforgettable evening highlighted by delicacies such as oysters on the half-shell, lobster bisque, smoked duck breast and Koji beef tenderloin.
“We support all of the regions in which are facilities are located,” commented Global Business Development Director Alvaro Chacon Prieto. “Part of our corporate philosophy is finding ways to make meaningful contributions to the local communities, beyond providing gainful employment.”
Hosted by CANIRAC, the restaurant industry association of Los Cabos, the festival featured international food from 40 local restaurants, along with two dozen purveyors of fine wines and liquors. It attracted some 2,000 guests to an evening of culinary art and entertainment at the Campestre San Jose del Cabo, owned by Grupo Questro, which furnished the venue on its lush golf course designed by Hall of Fame golfer Jack Nicklaus.
