On Thursday, December 8, the Tijuana Flats Just in Queso Foundation will be raising money for individuals, organizations and communities in need by hosting a happy hour fundraiser at Wall Street Plaza’s Waitiki Lounge in Downtown Orlando.

Attendees will enjoy live music, cocktails and a raffle. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Just in Queso Foundation, which uses money raised via events like this one, to support great causes like children’s organizations, breast cancer research and other people and groups that are in need in the community. This event is the perfect opportunity to bring friends and families together to demonstrate community support.
