Our events are really important to us and we are always looking for ideas and venues.
Hosting a fundraising event not only helps Todos Juntos Jávea immensely but is also a great marketing tool for your business as we announce all our events through our website, newsletters and Facebook well in advance of the event itself. Drop us a line at any time if you would like to meet up to talk about helping us raise funds.
HELPING A LOCAL ARTIST
When fires raged through Pinosol park in September 2016 and destroyed hundreds of trees, one man decided to use his skills to return some beauty to the devastated area. Miguel Angel, a local gardener, used his considerable artistic talent to transform dead tree trunks into works of art. He carved beautiful shapes into the trunks, making them more into fantastic images of animals and birds. This painstaking work he undertook for free, giving up his precious leisure time as a labour of love. Kindness such as that should be rewarded, but apart from the huge gratitude of local residents, Miguel did not seek fame.
However recently he was very much in the news but for the wrong reason. Whilst his van was parked by the bus station in Javea, thieves broke into it, and stole over €3000 of equipment. When this came to the attention of Carmen Alesanco, the President of Todos Juntos Jávea, she immediately decided that TJJ should support Miguel in a practical way.
Todos Juntos Javea, this very local charity, did exactly what the name suggests. It brought people together to raise money for Miguel.
Debbie Clarke, the owner of Café Cortado opened the café on Sunday when it is normally closed. Carmen cooked a huge paella, and 40 people bought tickets for lunch. Debbie arranged a DJ, Gary Miller who created a wonderful atmosphere with his music. This event was arranged at incredibly short notice, but thanks to the time and support of many people over 600€ was raised to help Miguel start to rebuild his tool collection.
OK in MAY
TJJ had a fantastic night in May at the wonderful Azahar restaurant with the inimitable OK Band. A fashion show by the lovely Antítesis shop added to the excitement of a truly fabulous evening.
