Food Truck World Tour


You Helped Us Raise $239,000!

Wednesday, October 2, 2019
Metropolitan Community College Fort Omaha Campus

Our fifth annual Food Truck World Tour surpassed our expectations!  We entertained more than 500 guests and raised $239,000 — $36,000 of that amount was raised in only five short minutes during our Gifts from the Heart appeal.

Attendees enjoyed an evening of ethnic, mouth-watering food and lively performances. Our venue allowed plenty of space for all to mingle and enjoy friends and family. The food trucks were outside with a tent to protect guests from potentially too much sun or a bit of rain.  The bars, tables, and entertainment were inside the huge glass-walled room with Coneflower Creamery ice cream and Rico Pan cupcakes.

Outstanding Event Leadership

Food Truck World Tour’s honorary event chairs, Kristin Williams & Roxanne Wiles, described their thoughts on the event:

The most fun event of all the events of Omaha. We are so proud to support Immigrant Legal Center because of all the work   that they do to help immigrants get their legal needs met. – Kristen Williams

We are just so excited to be a part of this event because it’s good work – it’s the right work, our country needs this work, and the world needs this work. Where else would you rather be? We’re on the right side of history. We’re so excited to be doing this and having this event, which is such a success this year. – Roxanne Wiles

Host Committee Co-Chairs were Esther Mejia & Jeneen Sagon and Ryan Ellis & Jonathan Taylor. We at ILC are tremendously lucky to have such a dedicated leadership team for this event. We couldn’t imagine a more successful and fun night without them!

We appreciate your support for this event.
