The proceeds of the event will be donated equally to The Amigos de Lo de Marcos, A.C. who provide service and funding for many of the non-profit groups in this coastal town and to Citizens Actions Committee of Lo de Marcos who is responsible for organizing the traditional and cultural events of the year - such as religious festivities and government Holidays. The "Comité de AcciónCiudadana" as it is called in Spanish, is basically the body that is responsible for the social events of the town which are intended for the public's benefit. The group´s President, Juan Ventura is grateful for the support given to the Pueblo of Lo de Marcos by The Taste of Lo de Marcos event.
