Alghalia - Always Giving Back

About a year ago, I heard about a charity event at Cafe Lilou where basically all the proceeds of the day go to a charity.  A group of us decided to go and we were so happy to see bustling tables and large crowds all wanting to contribute to society.  The next month, I heard of a similar day at an Alghalia outlet where all proceeds go to charity.  This is not a once-off event but a recurring one.

Alghalia has got to be one of the most successful group of companies in Bahrain.  But instead of keeping it in the family, the group frequently gives back to the community and have set up a permanent campaign called "Alghalia Gives Back". 



The campaign is simple: the 7 food outlets take turns dedicating one day's revenue to a charitable cause. Their Facebook page is frequently updated to announce new events.

Not only that, but they also run events throughout their other outlets (like Dessange) where they raise money and donate the proceeds to charities.

I was invited to a luncheon last week at Zoe where Alghalia were thanking sponsors and supporters for helping them raise money during the Zumbathon last month.  They managed to raise a total of BD10,000 and presented the check to the Bahrain Cancer Society. What a great gesture and for a good cause.

 


Next month, on Sunday April 7,  Monsoon will donate all its proceeds to the Dream Society.  Call Monsoon NOW and book a table for you and your family, friends, or sit alone on the sushi bar but do it.  It's for a good cause.
