Tacos party highlight of evening at Misato Childrens Home

Date Posted: 2012-07-07

A night out at Obbligato’s Mexican Restaurant is always nice, but it’s even nicer when the Mexican food restaurant brings its food to Misato Children’s Home for a very special evening.

Obbligato has been conducting charity activities and events across the island over the years, and chose the Misato Children’s Home, a facility for children with family problems, for the June 30th special night. Food was almost the least of the evening’s excitement. Ryukyu Golden Kings star Narito Namizato was on hand for the festivities, along with fellow Kings mate Jun Yasunaga. They donated basketballs to the home, encouraging the kids to “enjoy sports”.

It was a time of play and picture taking with the Basketball Japan League Champion players and staff. Namizato even hit the home’s basketball court, mixing it up with the kids. Obbligato’s owner, Mark Esparza, gave the encouraging pitch about enjoying the evening and the food, then passed everything to his staff, which explained how to eat tacos and choosing the different toppings. While the tacos were flowing, clown ‘Anita’ joined the party, showing balloon art to the kids, and gave art balloons to the youngsters.

Slowing the tempo was Mark Esparza’s wife, Chika Takami, who read a picture card of Okinawa local story, and another Japanese story, before performing Rakugo, the traditional Japanese comic storytelling.

Obbligato donated badminton sets, including rackets and nets, to the home. “we thank Obbligato because hey provided us such a splendid party,” says Mitsuhiro Miyagi, head of Misato Children’s Home. “We hope that the children live positively, and have dreams and hopes through this event and sports.”
