Maovember marked the midway point of its month-long campaign with a Funk Fever party at Migas and a wine tasting at La Cava that pushed total cash on hand past 40,000 yuan.
Funk Fever raised 3500 yuan and lifted the total raised at events to 17354 yuan. As an invite-only event, the wine tasting was included as a private donation, which now total 13,000 yuan.
Add 10,660 yuan worth of pins sales and the grand total now stands at 41,014 yuan, with more money from pins expected this week.
Maovember teams restaurants, bars, vendors and customers for good causes. Our 2019 partner is Library Project, which has furnished more than 2000 libraries in rural schools. Learn more about Maovember here. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
