Mexican Village donation to CSF
Coronado Mexican Village presents a $25,000 donation to the Coronado Schools Foundation on November 2, 2018.

Their first major donation went to the Coronado Schools Foundation as they presented a check in the amount of $25,000 on Friday, November 2 to kick off the restaurant’s grand opening weekend festivities. Accepting the donation was Coronado Schools Foundation Director of Development Leanne Anderson. Also in attendance was Coronado Unified School District Superintendent Karl Mueller as well as additional board members from both CUSD and CSF and city council candidate Mary Sikes.

CSF logoWhen deciding where to make this first donation, Biafora, partner and building owner, made it clear he wants to make a positive impact on the kids of Coronado, so CSF was the logical choice. Biafora stated, “This is just the beginning.” According to Patty Cowan, Coronado Schools Foundation CEO, this is the largest single cash donation received from a local business.

In addition to supporting Coronado Schools Foundation, Mexican Village owners are dedicated to other community partnerships which are still in development including local sports and the Wampler Foundation. Mexican Village will be a part of The Great Coronado Dine Out for Camp Wamp on Wednesday, November 7th. Coronado SAFE is also on the radar for their support according to Chris Kelly, who is handling the community and public relations for the restaurant.

Coronado Mexican Village strives to be a positive contributing business in Coronado while creating a place where islanders, friends, families, and visitors can gather to have fun, enjoy good food and live music in an environment that welcomes all ages. They are committed to embracing Coronadans as a family.

Coronado Mexican Village is located at 126 Orange Avenue. They are open seven days a week for lunch and dinner along with Monday night Trivia, $2 Taco Tuesdays, Kids Eat Free Wednesdays, weekend Brunch from 9am-2pm and live bands Friday and Saturday nights. The restaurant participates in the CSF Coronado Locals Card program, and they offer an everyday 15% active military discount.
