The first Jornada Pro-Infancia Costa Tropical in Motril intends to beat the record for the longest cured-ham-on-toast in the world. The money raised by the event will go to the Cruz Roja based in Motril for its Family & Infancy Programme.
Now, a couple of local business have chipped in, both of which have been thanked by the Councillor for Citizen Participation, Inmaculada Torres.
The big day is this Saturday the 29th and will be held on the Paseo de las Explanadas, commencing at 12.30h.
It should wind up by 20.30h, but not before a spot of live entertainment in the form of a Flamenco show by Javi Flores, Conchi Maya and Miki. Furthermore there will be a dancing exhibition put on by the Tropical Dance and a fashion show.
All of this entertainment has free admission and will take place in the afternoon/evening.
Two local businessmen are behind the organisation: Ignacio González from the Complejo Puerto Pálido and David Fernández from Gourmet Ibérico. There will also be 20 professional jamón-serrano carvers slicing away to make the ham on toast.
The aim is to build a ham-on-toast 110-metres long, which will be sold at three euros a slice. If you have already eaten toast that morning and don’t fancy any more, then you can buy a ration of jamón serrano for five euros a plate, too.
It’s all going to a good cause, so dig deep and sink your choppers in because Cruz Roja will use it on marginal families with young kids, providing school material where needed.
