Giving back to the community

“Day of the Bread” is destined to become a very noteworthy, tasty, and beneficial event.

A portion of every ticket sold and a percentage of all sales will benefit Tucson’s Tu Nidito, a very special local non-profit agency that offers grieving children a community of acceptance and understanding during their time of need.

“We’ve been wanting to do this ‘feast of yeast and flavor” event for a while,” said Ray Flores, CEO of Si Charro! Concepts. “The ‘Day of the Bread’ is a fitting theme for this time of the year, and it seemed like an excellent opportunity to welcome guests to The Monica, show off the incredible talents of our team, and benefit one of Tucson’s most cherished non-profits.”

The Monica is located at 40 E. Congress St. For more information, visit and to purchase your tickets. Happy Hour takes place 3-6 p.m. on Monday – Friday.
