Thanks Cuckoos

Sometimes the course of events leaves you amazed at people’s generosity and professionalism.

Sometimes the course of events leaves you amazed at people’s generosity and professionalism. I approached Cuckoos in Trattoria and Pizzeria in Coombs for help with a fundraiser for our school, Qualicum Beach School of Dance. The idea was an upscale “beer and burger night.” We decided to try a “wine and pasta night.”

We agreed on a price that was extremely generous on Cuckoos’ part. I thought what we were getting was a simple meal and basic night out. What we got however, exceeded everyone’s expectations. The food was amazing, with such variety and quality you thought you were in a five star hotel dinning room.

The staff were incredible. Cuckoos didn’t have to go above and beyond. It was a simple low-cost fundraiser but the staff made it into an amazing, successful evening. I just want to take the time to thank them and Chef Fausto. It’s people and businesses like this that make our community great.
