A RESTAURANT closed after 36 years has dished up a fund raising success for Cudeca CancerCare Hospice.
The Roman Oasis restaurant shut down last year but opened up again for one night only to host a charity dinner organized by Cafetería Miel in Sabinillas. Paul Hickling, owner of the Roman Oasis restaurant in Manilva, and Kaat Buelens, the organizer, raised more than 4,600€ for Cudeca thanks to the generosity of the 150 people attending the event.
Everyone paid 50€ for an evening with two musical acts, a tribute to Cher By MichelleDaniels and the duo act Mark and Kelly and a three-course hog roast dinner.Guests also played Wheel of Fortune to win prizes donated by locals and business owners and made bids in an auction of a designer handbag.All the funds raised will go to cover the cost of the professional medical care offered to patients suffering from cancer and other advanced illnesses, as well as support to their families, all of which Cudeca gives completely free of charge.
Kaat Buelens said: “We chose Cudeca because two people we know very well had a parent that stayed at Cudeca Hospice and were very impressed about the organization and grateful in those difficult times.”Cudeca Hospice representatives thanked Kaat and Paul Fisher for organizing the dinner
