REACH for Nepal Foundation – Gala Dinner 2018

18
Sep 2018
Tuesday

REACH for Nepal Foundation (RFN) will be hosting its second ever “Fundraising Gala Dinner” event on Tuesday, 18 Sep 2018, at Albert Hall, Canberra. The first event in 2017 was a successful affair for the foundation with about 330 Canberran’s and Sydneysiders attending.

RFN has engaged local as well as national and international support to provide relief to the Nepalese people in rural and remote parts of the country since its inception in 2015, after the devastating earthquakes that took over 8,000 lives and left many more destitute.
The foundation has raised over $50,000 and carried out 10+ projects which include – building classrooms in multiple schools, water tank to service the school/village, library, computer room, distributed furniture in the schools, school playground, women’s community home to name a few.

Annual Gala Dinner is proving to be RFN’s major fundraising activity with nearly $20,000 raised in 2017. The fundraising is assisted by the foundation overseeing several fully guided trekking experiences to the Himalayas each year. These combine trekking with volunteer work on a rebuilding project, some of which are mentioned above.

RFN hopes that an event such as this will help us communicate with our stakeholders to promote the progress we have made in Nepal and also to raise our profile to garner more support for the foundation.

We look forward to hosting you on the night.
