Restaurant marks anniversary at kids’ village-A A +A
Sunday, December 11, 2011
IN THE spirit of good tidings and gift-giving, the management and staff of Choi City Seafood Restaurant visited the SOS Children’s Village in Barangay Talamban, Cebu City for an outreach program, as part of the establishment’s first anniversary thanksgiving celebration last Nov. 19.
For a day, the Choi City’s management and staff and the SOS children became one big, happy family, as they sang, danced, played, and ate together.
The program started with games, participated by both the young and the young at heart.
Then, the Choi City’s staff presented their birthday song and dance number to the November celebrants.
After the fun-filled activities, breakfast was then served. The children lined up as some of the restaurant staff served them food.
The other personnel, on the other hand, assisted in bringing the children’s plates to their dining areas. For the younger children, their Choi City Ate’s and Kuya’s were more than happy to feed them.
After breakfast, the staff-volunteers were surprised as the children showed their dance presentations.
Because there were still lots of food left after the program, all the houses in the village were asked to bring containers to be filled with food.
In coming to the village, the Choi City family members only had this simple goal: to make the children happy.
Though, at the end of the day, it was the children who left them teary-eyed by
touching their lives and making them happy.
Choi City Seafood Restaurant is an authentic Cantonese restaurant at the Banilad Town Centre in Banilad, Cebu City.
For inquiries and reservations, one may call 239-0999 or 239-0800.
