Corner House, Ozanköy
Successful Event for Tulips
By Margaret Sheard
How many burgers could you eat in 10 minutes? That was one of the tasks which was part of the fundraising event held at the Corner House Restaurant in Ozanköy on Sunday 10th August in aid of Help Those with Cancer Association (Tulips).
Unfortunately we were not able to be there but we have received an account of the evening from Carole King and Sue Tilt to pass on to our readers of the great success of the event.
“By Carole King and Sue Tilt
What an absolutely amazing result – to raise 4,000 TL in one evening, as Sue said, “They may be a little bar in Ozankoy, but they and all their supporters have very big hearts”…..
The event started at about 5.30 p.m. with Horse Racing organised by Gary Mac and his hard working team. Joseph Malin, who attended this event, won 60TL on the races and he decided to donate it all back to Tulips – we thank you very much Joseph.
This was followed by Guess How Many Sweets in the Jar competition which was organised and collected by cousins – Joseph Hughes (8yrs) and Molly Cartmell (14yrs) and they raised 380TL both on the night and the day before at Chateau Lambousa. There were 108 sweets in the jar and Mr Patrick Tarrant from Girne was the lucky winner.
Next came “The Burger Eating Competition” the winner of which was Liam Sedgewick who ate ‘almost’ 4 burgers in 10 minutes. The contestants had 10 minutes to eat as many as they could and the winner’s photo shows what was left after the 10 minute bell went! It was the 2 skinny lads who did the best, the big guys fell by the wayside!
A raffle was held with prizes which had been donated by Dennis the Chef, Tiga Trading, Acapulco Hotel, Scuba Cyprus, Mustafas Airport Transfers, Wines of the World, Efes, Cafe Boss and Efendi Restaurant and we thank all these people for their generosity in donating some great prizes – some of which when won were donated back to Tulips for us to Auction off on the night to raise extra cash, that was great. Live music ended the evening by “Blue Tears” and Bex Marshall.
Wow, what a huge amount of work by the owners and staff of the Corner House who worked tirelessly throughout a very hot evening and last but not least, a massive thanks to all who attended and donated so generously to Tulips.”
