SAFARI in SHANGHAI
FUNDRAISER ROUND-UP 
June 2012

Hi All:

Thanks ever so to everyone who joined the dinner & party at The Geisha last Saturday! That night we raised a total of RMB 7,340 for the Amazing Maasai Girls Project - an awesome kick-start for 2012, ahead of our main fundraising event on September 29th: the Assured Alliance Amazing Maasai Ultra marathon.
 
To put that into perspective, RMB 2,500 is roughly the cost of one year's high-school tuition in Laikipia North, Kenya. So, just from Saturday, we are close to achieving enough to support a Maasai girl through all 4 years of high school which would literally transform her future. NICE ONE! Any further donations would be gratefully received in cash or online here.
 
PRIZE WINNERS: Best Costume!
Choosing the winner for this prize was not difficult. This couple was by far the cutest safari-themed pair ever to roam the streets of Shanghai. Yep, Ivah & Stéphane, you’ve won a set meal for two at The Geisha, including a glass of sparkling wine each. Enjoy!
 
PRIZE WINNERS: Main Prize Draw
Everyone who attended and donated to the charity box on Saturday was entered into our prize draw to have the chance to win a night's stay in a Hillside Earth Hut at the 5-star Naked Stables Private Reserve in Moganshan on Saturday 8 September (inc. breakfast for 2 and free entry into the POTJIE TRIATHLON). How cool is that?!
 
Naked Stables Private Stables
"A rough and ready race that began in 2008, the Potjie triathlon begins in the naked Home Village reservoir and ends at the new naked Stables Private Reserve. Participants compete for the Potjie trophy, a traditional South African cooking pot. While the race is underway, the organizers cook up a rich mountain stew in a couple of Potjies on open fires. With a cold beer or three, it makes an excellent post race meal!"
 
…. and the winner of this awesome prize is Jessica Schultz. CONGRATS! (and thanks to my totally non-biased colleague Booming for selecting).
 
Jessica - we will contact you separately to arrange delivery of your voucher!
 
That's about it from us for now. For more regular updates, please follow us on Facebook or Twitter!
