For mom’s selfless act, son wins Marco Polo Plaza’s Mother’s Day contest

    Roberto Logarta, 1st place winner of "Home with Mom on Mother’s Day" contest

    Marco Polo Plaza has announced the winners of  “Home with Mom on Mother’s Day” — Roberto Logarta, Samantha June Boyer and Emdin Lucero.

                    “Home with Mom on Mother’s Day” is a Facebook contest that celebrates the  sweetest and most special woman in our lives, our mother.

                    Participants were asked to send in a photo of their moms via Facebook Messenger with a caption answering the question: “What makes Mother’s Day 2020 extraordinarily special?” Everyone who joined the contest was given a chance to win a bundle of Marco Polo Plaza’s award-winning signature pastries like the Mango Cheesecake, Cafe Marco Ensaimadas and a box of Malicious Cookies, which they would claim on Mother’s Day.

                    Emdin Lucero took third place for her sweet message to mom. She wrote: “This year is an extraordinary Mother’s Day because we only get to hug and kiss you through video chat. Your love for all of us is extraordinary and we LOVE YOU VERY MUCH! Hope to see you soon!” 

                    The second place went to Samantha June Boyer who talked about mommy-daughter moments. She shared: “My mom is my forever friend! This year, Mother’s Day is extra special because of this Coronavirus pandemic. She taught us how to read the Bible and do Bible study with my cousins every Sunday. I love singing, so my mom and I sing most of the time while doing chores. Videoke is our favorite hobby.”

                    Roberto Logarta won first place for an account of how his mom became a supermom not only to her own kids but also to the community. “Cooking our comfort food is our mama’s way of showing her love for us,” he said. “All special occasions that we spend at home, food served to guests, are all mama’s homemade viands. Mother’s Day is special since I get to bond with mama by helping her prepare cooked packed meals for the frontliners of VCMC and the homeless housed in San Nicolas Gym.”  For this remarkable tale, Roberto took home the grand prize–a special treat his mom will surely love–Marco Polo Plaza’s well-loved pastries, a whole layer of Mango Cheesecake, a box of three Café Marco Ensaimadas, and a box of Malicious Cookies. A special treat for his mom

                     Marco Polo Plaza salutes all mothers who lovingly care for the family, especially during this pandemic.
