Cook Out 2 Help Out: Burger-Eating Given a New Meaning!

 Wazzup Pilipinas!
"We wanna take this opportunity to thank everyone who dropped by and purchased the delicious burgers prepared by our partners on this second round of Help Out 2 Cook Out last January 24-26 at Power Plant Mall, Rockwell Center, Makati City! You all gave burger-eating a new meaning! Thank you so much!"
The Sunday afternoon at the Cook Out 2 Help Out event at the Powerplant Mall in Rockwell was an adocacy worth doing again and again. There is such a warm and fuzzy feeling deep inside everytime you sincerely make efforts to help out our fellowmen especially those lives who were affected by the Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) disaster in the Visayan region.

We may not totally rebuild their shattered lives and properties but it is a worthwhile cause that can amount to greater accomplishments if each and everyone of us will continue to make efforts to run similar causes such as these. Tacloban and the rest of the affected areas still have a lot of rehabilitation necessary to bring back its former glory.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to help rebuild the homes damaged by the typhoon.

Done for the second time Cook Out to help Out is more than just selling burgers and earning a profit. "You gotta eat anyway, right? Might as well chow down for a good cause!" and so they say!

Indeed, no better way to help out but to fill your stomach and getting satisfaction while the thoughts in your head tells you "I've done something remarkable!".

Spearheaded by Alex Lichaytoo of Bacchus Epicerie and Elbert Cuenca of Elbert’s Steak Room, everything at Cook Out to Help Out–from the venue, to the food, to the services of guest chefs and volunteers–has been donated or offered free of charge, so absolutely 100% of the sales from the event will go to helping build homes for Typhoon Haiyan victims via Habitat for Humanity.

Guests bought a P300 ticket and enjoyed a great cheeseburger, fries, and drink! I had the opportunity to level up for an additional 200 pesos and enjoyed a gourmet burger from one of their guest chefs which includes Robbie Goco (Cyma, Green Pastures), Mon Eugenio (Franco’s and Myron’s), Adrian Cuenca (The Steak Room), Elbert Cuenca (The Steak Room, Elbert’s Cheesesteaks and Yushoken), Alex Lichaytoo (Bacchus Epicerie), Sander Tanco (Bizu), Ian Padilla (La Girolle and Brasserie Girolle), Erwan Heussaff and Pete Ayson (Hatch 22 and Pink Panda) Chris Locher (Recess), Paul Lenz (Shangrila Makati), Pepe Llopez (Las Flores and Rambla), Tippi Tambunting (Masseto), Margarita Fores (Grace Park, Lusso ,and Cibo), and Tony Boy Escalante (Antonio’s). More chefs were coming in to participate as well.

Also available was beer on tap, wine from Bacchus, Lavazza coffee, Holly’s soft serve and milkshakes for a nominal donation.
