The best cook at UEM,2010?------Las 2 Conchitas!
Our THANKSGIVING PIE TASTING FEAST is a multi-faceted event.
It's for charity: Many people donated homemade desserts and drinks, and many more paid a euro and tasted them. This year we're supporting the NGO: Amigos de los Mayores so all the money will go to them.
It's for fun: The whole university was invited to partake and many people from many departments came down to try the desserts.
It's educational: We gave everyone a paper about Thanksgiving and encouraged everyone to practice their English while they were choosing their desserts.
It's a contest: Who's the best cook at UEM? This year 252.70 Euros were collected, and 104 votes were tallied. And the winner is.........Excuse me, the WINNERS ARE:
