In just one day of frenetic activity, Mamou has managed to raise the equivalent of over 8,500 full meals for the feeding program at the Tenement Elementary School in Taguig! THAT IS SIMPLY AMAZING. A rather full lunch time crowd turned into a jampacked first seating in the evening, followed by another full second seating for dinner, with some others squeezing in whenever possible! With the rains ceasing early evening, all the outdoor tables were full as well. And obviously, everyone decided to drop their diets for the day as the food consumption must have been something else! We got there at the tail end of the first dinner seating, to see several friends, acquaintances, marketmanila.com readers and previous eyeball guests finishing up their meals. They were swiftly replaced with another wave of diners, and I was thrilled to note so many participated in the market basket raffle (winner to be contacted soon by email). But the real kudos go to MAMOU’s Malou, Oye and Annie and their wonderful crew of 21, who did an amazing thing by choosing to make their 3rd anniversary an opportunity to do something so special and generous for others in need. On behalf of the kids at the Tenement Elementary School, thank you. As if that wasn’t enough, the Mamou crew sent every single patron home with a red velvet cupcake from Sonja’s, the final sweet note to a wonderful meal.
