February 14th – Valentine’s Day saw many venues providing a lovely atmosphere for those who wanted to celebrate this annual romantic occasion. We have received information from EFRAR of their Valentine’s Night event which, as well as being a romantic occasion, was a fundraising event for Help Those with Cancer Association (Tulips).
“There was good food, a flower for the ladies, romantic music and subtle lighting which was the perfect recipe for a Valentine Night’s dinner and the 38 guests who joined Cengiz Meydane and the team at his Waterfall Restaurant in Esentepe would certainly agree with that.
Each year Cengiz organises a Valentine’s event for E.F.R.A.R. which raises money for Tulips to help care for cancer patients. It is always successful and this year we raised 950TL thanks to a donation of 7TL for each meal from Cengiz, generous participation in the raffle and the auction of a taxi trip to Larnaca airport. DJ Malcolm provided just the right music to suit the occasion and helped create the romantic atmosphere.
Mary Watson, Chair of E.F.R.A.R. said “It really was a delightful evening. Cengiz runs a number of events for us during the year and he always makes a real effort to raise as much money as possible. We would like to thank him, his hard working team and, of course, Malcolm for the music.”
