The last “hair of the dog” event for the Maovember 2017 campaign featured a “shave off” at The Hatchery. Attendees could get a shave, or just a trim, while enjoying Jing-A stout or Jameson drinks, with all funds to Maovember. The event raised rmb2,040 and wrapped up a successful 2017 campaign!
Maovember officially closed its 2017 campaign on November 30 with a rowdy party at Paddy O’Shea’s. The night kicked off with a group of supporters joining Mike Wester for the last of the 900 kilometers he walked during his mao-a-thon in November.
Party-goers then enjoyed CHEERS mulled wine, Orchard Pig cider and Jameson picklebacks, hockey and dart games, the weigh-in for the CHEERS Wine Your Weight in Wine Contest, and live bands all night.
Representatives of this year’s partners, Bread of Life and The Library Project, were on hand to accept rmb25,000 each as an initial donation. The rest will be given once the final accounting is done this month.
All in all, a wild and fun finish to this year’s campaign, one that raised 33,490 mao (3,349 rmb) through wine, cider and pickleback sales, games and donations!
