Carlos O'Kelly's Mexican Café - Cinco de Mayo Party! - May 2003

On Monday May 5, HSCI and Bloomington-Normal were fortunate that the Bloomington Carlos O'Kelly's Mexican Café hosted their corporate Cinco de Mayo Party. HSCI was the 2003 benefiting charity for the Bloomington-Normal location. The party began at 4:00 pm. Included in the evening was a WBNQ radio remote with Susan and Fasig, silly dances performed by the Carlos O'Kelly's staff, a magician, and the Mighty Groove Trio!

Carlos O'Kelly's did a promotion during April for HSCI where customers could purchase a cat or dog cut-out for a donation.

Tony, manager, planned the promotion and a Cinco de Mayo celebration that ended the promotion.

Of course, there was the traditional food and drinks associated with Cinco de Mayo.
