Partners with PRAE (Puerto Rican Alliance of Elizabeth, NJ) and the Agencia de Servicios Sociales Pentecostales (ASSPEN) to Send Aid to Puerto Rico

Doherty-owned Chevys Fresh Mex restaurants in Clifton and Linden, NJ are commemorating National Hispanic Heritage Month with week-long celebrations that will include live music, mariachi bands, art shows featuring works from local artists, tequila tastings, and a special donation drive to send supplies to Puerto Rico which was recently devastated by Hurricane Fiona.

An 18 wheeler truck will be parked outside Chevys Linden on Wednesday, October 5th and then Chevys Clifton on Friday, October 7th to accept donations to help our friends and family in hurricane ravaged Puerto Rico.  Guests are asked to bring the following items to donate to the relief effort:

  • bottled water
  • non-perishable dry food
  • rice
  • coffee
  • cleaning supplies
  • batteries
  • solar lamps
  • toiletries

“We’ve partnered with two terrific local charitable organizations, PRAE (Puerto Rican Alliance of Elizabeth, NJ) and the Agencia de Servicios Sociales Pentecostales (ASSPEN) to help organize this relief effort,” said Kurt Pahlitzsch, VP of Operations at Doherty Enterprises. “We want to encourage our guests to bring a few items to place in the truck and then stay to enjoy all the music and activities as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage.”

Activities will include Kids Eat Free Nights, Live Music, Tequila Tastings, and Art Shows (check with each location for times and dates).

Of special interest is Chevys new Tequila menu that features three different Cristalinos, aged tequilas that have been charcoal filtered – which is an increasingly popular finishing touch before bottling. Other notable additions are an organic tequila from the award-winning Tres Agave brand; Komos, Tasting Magazine’s highest-rated tequila portfolio ever- including their first and only 100-point score, and 21 Seeds a handcrafted fruit/vegetable infused family of tequila produced by a women-owned tequila distillery in Mexico.
