THE Almeria solidarity tapas route has exceeded expectations and raised thousands for the intellectual disability association A Toda Vela.
This year 25 bars and restaurants in Almeria city, Cabo de Gata and Aguadulce took part in what was the fifth edition of the event, which wound up with the presentation of a cheque for €5,528 to A Toda Vela.
There were also prizes for the establishments which were most supportive of the initiative and for serving the tapas most highly rated by the public.
Almeria City Promotion councillor Carlos Sanchez emphasized just how much money the solidarity tapas route had raised “in the middle of a difficult situation due to the pandemic.”
They were sentiments echoed by Almeria provincial council Social Well-being deputy Angeles Martinez.
“This year has been surprising because we have exceeded expectations, raising more money for the A Toda Vela association”, she commented.
“Almerians have been an example of solidarity and have shown that, together, we are fighting for a better society.”
Both the councillor and the deputy thanked all the bars and restaurants which tool part in the event, as did A Toda Vela president Maria Dolores Manzanares. She also expressed the association’s gratitude to both Almeria city council and the Diputacion de Almeria for their part in the tapas route, and above all, to the event organiser Jose Maria Azorin.
He reported that it had brought a return of more than €70,000 to the hospitality sector over the three weeks it ran.
