Tuesday, December 12, 2017

On Tuesday, December 12, 2017 El Jefe’s Taqueria, and the Harvard Varsity Club, is sponsoring a special fundraiser for Ben Abercrombie. Ben is a first-year student at Harvard and was a defensive back for the Harvard Crimson football team. During Harvard’s first game on September 16, 2017, Ben suffered a catastrophic cervical neck injury and was paralyzed. To let Ben know that he is in our hearts, El Jefe’s, together with the Harvard Varsity Club, are sponsoring a “Ben Abercrombie Day” in Harvard Square. On this day, our community can let Ben know we are thinking of him, by donating to a fund created by the Harvard Varsity Club to assist him and his family. It’s called The Benson M. Abercrombie ’21 Fund and you can help in the following ways:    

  • Come eat at El Jefe’s on Tuesday Dec. 12 – from 8am-4am. Every penny that comes in the door that day will go to Ben’s fund. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner or Late Night, come into El Jefe’s and show your support for Ben and please – invite everyone you know to come along. Also, when you pay your bill, you’ll have a chance to add an extra donation instead of a tip. Please come in, eat, and give! 
  • If there’s a long line, the Varsity Club will be at El Jefe’s throughou the entire event, with a tablet (for credit cards) or a helmet (for checks and cash) that will allow you to donate to Ben’s fund without waiting to go through the line for food. So even if you aren’t hungry please stop in and contribute. 
  • Please share this link…… post it on your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. Forward it on to everyone in your address book! Share it with family and friends near and far! Let’s make this day one that Ben and his family will remember for a very long time.
