The Tour of Hope Simple Fundraising Dinner
Hope is a powerful thing. It gives one courage and strength for the present, and optimism for the future.
It is with great pleasure that I get to participate in giving back to society. The Tour of Hope (TOH) is a non-profit initiative of a group of like-minded people of various background who set-up bicycle tours in order to increase the awareness and raise funds for health prevention and education projects benefiting resource limited communities.
In short, TOH gives hope to women and the lives of people around them.
This year, they recently completed a 660km cycling expedition to Thailand to raise funds for educational and healthcare support for the prevention and treatment of cervical cancer. Even with a vaccine and treatment available, not many women in the rural parts of Thailand can afford it. TOH helps them.
To give these TOH bikers a well-deserved post-tour treat and personally contribute to this cause, The Hungry Cow and Aston's newest baby, Javier's Rotisserie & Salad Bar, are putting together a simple fundraising dinner for TOH.
Date: 7 Dec 2010 (Today!)
Venue: Javier's Rotisserie & Salad Bar (#B1-03/04/05, Cathay Cineleisure Orchard)
Menu: A special sampler of Roast Chicken, Roast Beef and Honey Bourbon Ribs + one-time self-serve at the Salad Bar + Coffee/Tea/Soft drinks
Cost: $88/person (with a glass each of Champagne, red and dessert wines)
$70/person (without wines)
For every diner that attends this dinner, $50 from the dining cost goes to TOH! :)
So while the heroes do the more grueling part, you can contribute by just signing up and eating! No sore bums.
This is open to anyone with a heart and wants to contribute to the fight against cervical cancer. Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to join us for tonight's casual fundraising dinner! Cheers to the women in our lives.
