BRECKENRIDGE — The annual Cinco de Mayo Celebration at Mi Casa Mexican Restaurant raised an all-time high of $28,697.39, according to a news release. The proceeds benefit the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center and its Willie Whalen Memorial Fund, which promotes adaptive recreation and education for people with disabilities.

The fundraiser has raised more than $500,000 in its 36-year history.
