Social Responsibility

Mesón Sabika and Tapas Valencia are proud participants in local and global efforts to institute a positive change via various charitable organizations.  Our participation is often sponsored by the active donations of our patrons in structured charitable events (i.e. Hurricane Katrina/American Red Cross).  Without the support of our local community for these events, Mesón Sabika could not serve as a conduit for these donations.

In an effort to communicate gratitude to those participants in our community, we would like to document the donations given in the last seven years to these charities in this section. Without you, this would not be possible.

With Sincerest Thanks,

Hossein Jamali
President
Mesón Sabika and Tapas Valencia

“Human beings are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul.
Should one organ be troubled by pain,

Others would suffer severe strain.
If you have no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you cannot retain.”

 Saadi Shirazi (Persian Scholar)
