Please join us for the longest running charity quiz in Cascais!
Come on your own or as a team. Although the quiz is free, there is a voluntary collection for charity. The beneficiary is Casa da Sopa Berçário, a registered charity that assists needy families with infants. All monies raised are administered by the IWP (International Women in Portugal). There are no admin costs and 100% of your donation goes towards buying baby necessities. Your donation entitles you to a raffle ticket and you could win a handsome prize.

Enjoy a delicious traditional Portuguese Christmas meal!
Portugal is a small country with wide traditions…. Codfish, octupus, lamb, pork, turkey, roaster are all invited for Xmas table, depending on the region you visit.
Where I come from, Baixo Alentejo, for Christmas Eve we have Açorda de Bacalhau (codfish soup) and Carne de Porco á Alentejana (pork alentejo style). On the 25th we have a rich table of turkey, lamb…and of course sweets make the perfect ending and we seat at the table sharing stories…the elders share stories from a harder yesterday, and the link between generations is renewed…life is richer when we share it.
For this lunch we propose a buffet with:
– Açorda de Bacalhau
– Carne de Porco á Alentejana
Limit: 30 persons.
Please contact Beverly to hold your space by Dec. 5th.
