Cook Book Raises Funds For Wounded Warrior Project On Behalf of Fallen Tampa Ranger

Army 1st Lt. Dmitri Del Castillo liked food.
Del Castillo, a Ranger, liked to cook (one of his favorite dishes to make was guacamole) and he liked to eat even more, says Joe Durkin, spokesman for Bright House Networks.
On June 25, 2011, 24-year-old Del Castillo, the son of Bright House vice president Carlos Del Castillo, was killed in Afghanistan. After his death, his family and friends decided to create a cookbook to raise funds for the Wounded Warrior Project.
The recipes were turned into a book called Memorable Recipes Expressing support for our fallen heroes.
The book, which has pictures of Dmitri, messages from family and friends and recipes for a wide assortment of dishes ranging from jambalaya to sun dried tomato stuffed chicken, raised more than $10,000, says Durkin.
MRE was a success and raised more than $10,000. The money will be presented to the Wounded Warrior Project Wed., May 2nd at 9:30 a.m. at the Auburndale office of Bright House Networks, 1004 U.S. Highway 92 West.
