Our History

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo

For eleven years Jorge and the gang from Desperados produced a three day charitable Cinco de Mayo celebration with amusement park rides, 5k runs, bicycle races, beach volleyball and even a beauty pageant. Additionally, with acts like Bill Tillman, Joe King Carrasco, Lou Diamond Phillips and War on stage it was indeed a celebration like no other.

The Greenville Ave. St. Patrick’s Parade

The family has played an integral part in the success of the annual Greenville Avenue St. Patrick’s Parade. This event is over three decades in the making, hosts 100,000+ spectators, is the largest St. Patrick’s parade in the south and generates revenue for college scholarships. For 15 years Jorge served as the president of the Greenville Ave Area Business Association (GAABA) and with Jake on the board to help they aided in the growth of this gigantic event and instituted the scholarship fund, which helps local kids realize their scholastic dreams.

Savor Mexico

Savor Mexico

As of late they have created Savor Mexico a culinary fundraiser involving celebrity chefs from Mexico preparing authentic regional delights culminating in an enchanted evening of delectable proportions. Mexican food is so much more than tacos, fajitas and nachos.  Each region of Mexico is richly diverse in its own culinary tradition and our goal is to present these diversities one region at a time.  Every year a different state is explored and its flavors are presented in a delightful evening.  A renowned celebrity chef will guide the guest through a gastronomic tour of his/her culture pleasing the senses along the way.

The latest endeavor is the brainchild of their Catering Director Ameet Somaney.  He always wanted to host a golf tournament, so he did.  The Desperados Charity Golf Tournament was first held in 2014 and has benefitted the Dallas Stars Foundation and now the Assist the Officers Foundation.  This is a great tournament featuring great food, a cool silent auction, a million dollar shot and much more.
