Tequila, Tacos and Terrific Company

What more could we have asked for!?

Cantana Tequila was completely sold out. 60 people had rsvp’d and withstood the rains to raise funds and tequila glasses for TNR Trust at Fonda NBO, the Mexican restaurant in Rosslyn Riviera Mall.

It all started when Edie found a dog in a snare. With the help of the vet, she was able to catch the dog and get it the medical treatment it needed. But the vet bill amounted so she sought out help amongst friends and family.

Around the same time, she got into contact with Amy Rapp for some tips and, hearing of the work TNR Trust does, decided to include us in the fundraiser. Together with her husband Jonty, a profession connoisseur of tequila, she came up with a concept for a night that would promise great fun.

The guests started to arrive at 7pm and set down for a warm-up drink. We first got a thorough explanation of how the tequila in our 3 tasting shot classes came about. Fonda NBO had provided some amazing totopos and, after the tasting, 3 mini-tacos

After everyone had had their fill, it was time for the quiz! We were questioned on African Geography, Local Knowledge and so many more things and quite a competitive edge came about amongst the merry crowd!

We also like to congratulate Sabrina, the lucky winner of the evening’s raffle, with her brand new doggy bed which had been donated to TNR Trust.

Our gratitude goes out to Edie and Jonty, for organizing the event, and to Fonda NBO, for hosting us in their beautiful and welcoming restaurant!
