The Pecado Bueno philosophy includes a commitment to always give back. We are proud to say that we have given over $600,000 to the community and will continue to contribute as our business grows. We believe that by giving back we are helping foster the kind of community we all want to live in.

Charitable Focus

We prefer to donate to local, community-based organizations. We focus on education, children’s health organizations, and the arts. However, all requests are welcome.

Fundraising Nights

Pecado Bueno holds fundraising nights for groups of 75-250 people. We typically ask the organization to charge $15 for adults and $10 for children, the price of which includes a taco bar, Mexican food buffet, or pig roast. The charity receives 100% of the proceeds from the food and the restaurant keeps the profits from alcohol sales. In the past, fundraising nights have included casino nights, trivia nights, and game nights. Many organizations choose to hire a band for the night. We also encourage the groups to do a raffle during the event. Please email for requests.

Food Donations

We also offer food donations for charitable events held outside the restaurant. Depending on the size of the event and your needs, we provide everything from light appetizers to a full taco bar. In the past, we have also offered food donations as a part of a larger auction package for fundraisers. For example, Pecado Bueno will provide the food and another community partner will provide the venue and entertainment to be auctioned off as a party package. Please email for food donation requests.
