Once Upon a Stove in Mexico

On Friday, March 23rd our very good friends, Yoli and Victor Del Rio, hosted, in their lovely home, a traditional Mexican comida featuring Enchaladas Rojas together with all the trimmings. And the stars of the event were two of the healthful, efficient, practical and ever versatile Ecocina Stoves! Over 50 guests were in attendance and $12,000 pesos was raised to assist with the purchase of an Ecocina Stove for each of the elderly folks served by Antonette & Joe Lim of So Others May Eat, a project that they have been selflessly running in San Miguel for over 23 years. Thank you to the many who made donations toward the cause and to those that attended the event. Thank you to the lovely ladies who cooked the delicious meal and to our good friends who volunteered as servers. And a very special thank you to Yoli and Victor who worked tirelessly and with great enthusiasm to make this event possible.
