On Thursday, February 20, Solomon's Landing Restaurant, located on the Marina below the Tesoro Hotel and Resort, is offering an evening to remember as they are celebrating Silivianos Chef's 40-year-career anniversary dinner. The event starts at 7 p.m. with cocktail mixology followed by an 8-course dinner prepared by eight local chefs, including Brian Solomon, the owner of Solomon's Landing who is also a professional Chef.

Fifteen percent of the proceeds from the Silivianos Chef 40-year-career anniversary dinner will be donated to the Foundation, Ninos del Capitan, (Children of El Capitan). Ninos del Capitan is a registered Mexican non-profit charitable organization dedicated to helping children from single parents and children living in poverty in Cabo San Lucas.

The children's charity was founded in 1999 by the late Senora Herminia de Losada Robles. She recognized the problematic situation of children of single or abandoned mothers/fathers, or very low income families. She saw how they were left in the care of siblings, neighbors or family members and how the children were in constant danger of abuse, accidents, and malnutrition. They began as a day care, caring for seven children who had been abandoned by their mother, using a house that was lent to them by Amigos de Los Ninos A.C.

In 2001 the first stone was placed and the palapa was built, which was the first structure used for the center. Day by day more people joined the cause that flourished into the building and program that is offered today. The charity now assists children from all of the Mexican Republic that come to Los Cabos looking for a better life.

Their mission is to provide day-care/school to children living in poverty in a safe and loving environment. They also provide a social and educational foundation that will assist the children to become useful, self assured individuals. When needed the charity helps parents develop a sense of responsibility and respect for their children. In addition to Solomon's Landing Restaurant, many individuals, families and companies support their foundation.

The current president is Dr. Luz Esther Rojo Beltran. She has been with Los Ninos del Capitan from its beginnings and has been a crucial part of its daily success and operations for 19 years. She leads the team and is always looking for growth opportunities, is passionate about serving and loves kids. She is committed to giving the children happy memories, a safe place to grow and develop and an opportunity to get ahead In life.
