La Roca is committed to the well-being of its community. Part of our philosophy is to give back. Over the years we have worked with different organizations that help us achieve this goal.
The following are a few of the programs we’ve participated in:
La Roca proudly participates in a wheelchair donation program. Each chair is hand manufactured in Nogales, Sonora and measured to fit the donation recipient’s measurements and physical abilities. The chairs are designed to be “all terrain” allowing the person to easily move in any environment. This amazing program gives back mobility and freedom.
Pásame La Receta
Pasame La Receta, which means “Pass the Recipe”, is a wonderful community event started by local priest Father Gerardo Delatorre. La Roca opens its doors to host the private event in the main dining room and courtyard. Attendees are encouraged to bring their very best for 30-40 people. Each guest can then taste all of the food displayed and take home the recipes. All proceeds benefit the physically and mentally disabled population in Bangladesh, who otherwise have very minimal food, shelter, and medical resources. This event highlights the strong community roots and giving hearts in Nogales.
Santa Cruz County Boys & Girls Club
The Boys and Girls Club is an intricate part of the Santa Cruz community. The foundation’s goal is to unite the community and provide learning and development opportunities to the area’s youth. Every year La Roca participates in and donates delicious food at fundraising events like the Annual International Wine Festival. The event averages 500 attendees and all proceeds benefit the Boys & Girls Club programs.
Tubac Rotary Club
Each year the Tubac Rotary Club hosts The Taste of Tubac. The festival, which usually takes place the first Saturday in April, showcases great wine, food and music. Proceeds from the event are then presented as scholarships for Rio Rico High School students. La Roca is proud to be just one of the many fantastic local restaurants that contribute to this event’s success.
