A Record-Breaking Night for Immigrant Legal Center

Our fifth annual Food Truck World Tour surpassed our expectations!  We entertained 493 guests and with a preliminary donation amount of $234,500- $36,000 of that being raised in only 5 short minutes during our Gift from the Heart appeal!

Refer to our Facebook page for event photos.

Attendees enjoyed an evening of ethnic, mouth-watering food and lively performances. Our event, which took place at Metro Community College’s Center for Advanced and Emerging Technology (CAET) building, allowed plenty of space for all to mingle and enjoy friends and family.

Food Trucks and Entertainment  

Delicious options were available from MARIA Bonita Mexican Cuisine, Chaima African Cuisine, Sweet Lime, El Arepon Venezuela Food, Omaha Steaks, and Coneflower Creamery. The lines at every truck were long, but well worth the wait – as expressed by the eager consumers.

Guests gathered inside to view cultural performances by talented groups Flamenco Omaha, and Gurukulam Indian Dance Group. The performances incorporated their own interpretations of the culture they represented and were as lively as the outfits they wore.

Valet parking and shuttle services were available for guests. Parking lots were filled all around campus!

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

We 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.

Thanks to our Food Truck World Tour Leadership!
