Anniversary for a Cause

By Grace Flores-Osio 

Last November 2011, Cafe Antonio was privileged to be invited by Arla Diner to be part of the "Sacrifical Dinner for RJ Betia." This fundraising event was for the financial needs of 5-year old RJ, who is battling Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia or ALL. At that time, he had just begun the treatment process which would take several years to complete. The event was attended by over 200 friends and family of RJ. It was touching to see so many people come together to help RJ and his family.

But there is another reason why that night was a special one for Cafe Antonio. It was during the event that Arla Diner offered Cafe Antonio the option to rent their building in the compound. That was the first of several meetings with the people behind Arla Diner and the rest, as they history. God definitely has His amazing ways of bringing people and events together!

And so, in a sense, little RJ was responsible for "bringing" Cafe Antonio to the Arla compound. "And so RJ, we would like to celebrate our 4th Anniversary with you. As thanksgiving to our Lord for His goodness to the Cafe, part of the proceeds of the sales for April 14 will be given to you as our simple way of supporting your courageous fight against ALL. Keep up the brave fight, RJ! We will continue to pray for you. God bless you!!!!"
