The Restaurant Supports San Miguel Nonprofits

One of the many of San Miguel’s outstanding characteristics, which appeals to most of us and captures our hearts, is the generosity of spirit to others in need by many business owners and residents. San Miguel can easily be described as a very caring and giving community. An excellent example of this generosity is witnessed most of the months throughout the year through an act of kindness by local restaurant owner and Chef Donnie Masterton. A percentage of the Sunday proceeds of lunch and dinner from his fine establishment, “The Restaurant,” at Sollano 16, will again be donated to many different San Miguel nonprofits throughout 2016. During the month of April, the School for Special Education was chosen as a deserving cause and will be honored to be a beneficiary of this wonderful act of kindness by Donnie.
The Escuela de Educación Especial de San Miguel de Allende (San Miguel School for Special Education) has a mission to provide quality education and vocational training to children and young adults who are deaf or hearing impaired to ensure they become literate, independent, and productive citizens who can set and achieve life goals. This generous support will help the school achieve the goals set for some very special young people. You can learn more about the school at www.eeesma.com.
Please go visit The Restaurant on Sundays and bring your family and your friends to enjoy a great dining experience and, in the process, help a deserving local non-profit. You’ll find it very satisfying to the palate and good for the soul.
Thank you, Donnie. And thank you to the many other kind and generous folks of San Miguel de Allende who support so many worthwhile endeavors.
