FREE CHRISTMAS EVE DINNERS FOR LONELY SENIORS FROM MONOPOLIS
The winner of the “Real Estate Oscar” distributed 100 sets of Christmas Eve dinners for people selected as part of the aid campaign. They received traditional food for free prepared by the restaurants located in Monopolis.
The final of the action, which lasted from Saint Nicholas Day, took place the day before Christmas Eve, on December 23, 2020. As part of the “To Seniors on Christmas Eve from Monopolis”, the residents of Łódź had the opportunity to register older people who spent the past Christmas alone. The sets were delivered free of charge by the Taxi 800 400 400 drivers. The idea was to encourage the residents of Łódź to think about their neighbors and make them a pleasant surprise by giving them their smile and a good word along with the Christmas Eve set from Monopolis.
All Monopolis restaurants joined the action. The Sendai sushi & ramen restaurant, known for its eastern flavors, prepared Christmas Eve cabbage with peas, and Trattotia Italiana, specializing in Italian dishes, prepared delicious Polish Greek-style fish. Traditional dumplings with cabbage and mushrooms, which cannot be missed on the Christmas Eve table, were made by Piekarnia Łódź. Aromatic borscht with dumplings was cooked by Arteria Restaurant. The cheesecake with chocolate was prepared by the Mono Cafe, well-known for its delicious desserts.
