PLANTATION, FL, Nov 14, 2012 – Padrino’s Cuban Cuisine
announced today its participation in the “Forest of Angels” charity event over this holiday season. The charity that Padrino’s has selected to benefit from their tree decorating extravaganza is the Sheridan House in Davie.
“It’s a great community outreach,” Laura Padrino explained about Padrino’s involvement with the “Forest of Angels” charity. Padrino added, “They incorporate all the best things about the holiday season.” When asked how Padrino’s Cuban Cuisine
was decorating their tree, she revealed their tree would be a classically decorated Christmas tree with a little Cuban and restaurant influence. As this is a decorating contest, she would not divulge any other secrets. “You’ll have to see the tree at the Westfield Broward Mall.”
The “Forest of Angels” (http://www.forestofangels.com/
) is a non-profit organization that started this year in South Florida. Founded in Hungary, the “Forest of Angels” is an inspired way that provides businesses an avenue to not only make a positive impact in their communities, but give them a chance to show off their holiday decorating skills. The “Forest of Angel” trees will be showcased at the Westfield Broward Mall in Plantation from November 17, 2012 through January 6, 2013. Visitors are encouraged to vote for their favorite decorated tree at the event, online or via text. The business who wins the decorating contest will get a donation in their name, by the “Forest of Angels,” to the charity of their choice. Krisztina Rozsa, founder of “Forest of Angels” explained, “This gives businesses the opportunity to make a tremendous impact on their communities.” Padrino’s Cuban Cuisine
has chosen the Sheridan House as their charity. http://www.sheridanhouse.org/
. Padrino explained, “The Sheridan House is all about family values. They help so many kids and families with all of their programs. We respect and admire what they do, and we want to a difference for them any way we can.” The Sheridan House Family Ministries, founded in 1968, is a Christian based organization focused on helping families in need. Robert Barnes, Ed.D, President at Sheridan House, explained that Padrino’s understands the need in the community, and that Padrino’s continually comes up with creative ways to help. Barnes said, “If there were more organizations and companies that realized the tremendous need South Florida has with families and children, and if they were to get involved, the entire community would be different.”
Celebrate the Holidays by visiting the “Forest of Angels” at the Westfield Broward Mall – and don’t forget to vote. Making a difference in someone’s life this holiday season can be as easy as choosing the most unique, appealing or beautifully decorated tree. Happy Holidays.About Padrino’s Cuban Cuisine
