“Several weeks ago, I was contacted by Jason Peltier the event planner for The Big Rock Chophouse in Birmingham, Michigan.
They were catering a Mexican themed birthday party on Saturday, May 31 for 100 guests and asked if we would be interested in having a TPDR donkey attend the event. As this presented us with the opportunity for additional support for our rescued longears we decided to have a go at it. Besides, it sounded like fun!
Jen Engstrom and myself along with AKA Lucky Miller (standing in for TPDR Jeffrey) attended the party in Commerce Twp. Michigan and had a grand time. Lucky was a big hit, and made many new friends for donkeys everywhere. Most of the guests had no idea that there was a need for a donkey rescue, or that such organizations even existed.
Jason and the crew from Big Rock Chophouse were a pleasure to work with.They took excellent care of Jen and myself—the food was great!
They frequently asked if there was anything we needed, or if they could bring Lucky some water. They even escorted us safely to and from our trailer. What nice people to work with.
We are proud to have been recognized over the years with the following awards for our culinary and service excellence.
