Texas Theme BBQ
July 7, 2023
Village Inn, Riviera Sol
Texas comes to the Riviera del Sol
On a very warm July night, La Cala de Mijas Lions brought nearly a hundred people to the Village Inn for a Texas Theme BBQ. As the folk arrived, there were several who had turned up in cowboy and cowgirl costumes. The smells from the BBQ wafted in the air and the evening began with musical entertainment from the excellent Harvey James. The star of the evening was the person who had come dressed as a cowboy ridding a horse. An amazing costume, which on such a warm night must have been a challenge to keep on throughout the night. The call from the BBQ that the food was ready, saw a queue for the food snaking its way round the table. The chefs from the Village Inn had produced a great plateful of assorted meats along with a fine selection of salads. As the evening progressed the music encouraged many to dance the night away. A lull in proceedings, enable the raffle, with ten prizes to be drawn, followed by an auction of a voucher kindly donated by El Oceana, which raised an excellent 200€, with the raffle raising 700€. New Lions President, Brenda Meredith gave a thankyou speech to those who had ensured that the evening was a great success. A bottle raffle held by the Village Inn raised a further 145€. The whole evening raised a grand total of 1425€ for the Lions.
