Sing for Songan
On Thursday February 9th relentless rain and poor slope conditions caused major landslides in the Kintamani region of Bali killing 12 people. The worst hit was the village of Songan in the islands north east.
In an attempt to ease the pain of the villagers in the area and to try and bring some positive from the negative the Bali Children Foundation together with Cocoon Beach Club will hold a luncheon on Friday 5th May, 2017 to raise much needed funds to improve education opportunity in the village.
Bali Children Foundation will provide education scholarships for children of the affected families, repair, renovate and set up an English classroom with electricity, lights, fans and a 55 inch colour smart TV. Their BCF trained teacher will deliver English twice weekly as well as share content regarding environmental care and other matters the village needs assistance with.
BCF surveys of the area will commence soon and detailed data will be able to be provided by at the event. Our target to accomplish this is 75,000,000 rupiah which we hope to raise through luncheon ticket percentage, raffles, auctions and donations.
Tickets will go on sale from Cocoon and the Bali Children Foundation offices from Friday 24th April.
How can you help? We are looking for donations of vouchers and or goods from local business for raffles and auctions. We are also seeking additional ticket outlets to assist with creating awareness of the event throughout your network of customers and spreading the word of the luncheon through social media, editorial opportunity and the displaying of our event posters in your business.
