Benalmádena, 26th September 2011
Dino and Jo from the restaurant Los Naranjos in Mijas celebrated their annual charity event in aid of Cudeca on Saturday 13th August 2011.
The generosity of their patrons, local businesses and individuals who donated cash & items for the raffle & auction has again proven to be overwhelming. With the current economic situation as it is, Los Naranjos managed to raise a total of 5.032€ with a BBQ Hog roast attended by over 130 people.
With the music of Crossroads of Mijas, and performances by Gary “the reverend Toon” Young, Rob Stevens and a special appearance by Madge of Benidorm AKA Helen, really got the audience on their feet shouting for more.
Thanks to the Chef Stevie, and Tom, Sam, Katherine and Darrell, who helped with serving a fantastic 82 kgs of Hog roast prepared by Geoff & Sally along with the buffet of salads which were enjoyed by all.
