Charity Updates - Gracie Kelly’s Irish Pub Strives to Help People in Need
A few months ago we received some pleas for help by disadvantaged people in Bali through Solemen. One of them was from a bright young student named Cintya who lives only with her grandparents. A diligent student, she understands the importance of education and wanted to do a private English course so that she can have a better future which eventually will make a difference to her family's lives. Unfortunately she struggled to find the fund due to the family has a very little income as neither the grandparents work.
In our commitment to alleviate the suffering of those in need and make a difference to the lives of others, we decided to help her fund the course. A fundraising was held through Gracie Kelly’s twice a week Quiz Night every Tuesday & Thursday. People signed up in the quiz by donating to the charity account. Thank to the generosity of our guests, it took only a week to raise the needed fund of IDR 2.8 million for 1 year English course.
It is obvious that Gracie Kelly’s Quiz Night is getting more and more popular since it started to adopt individual cases to support. To date, the Quiz Night has been very successful in raising fund to help the people in need, such as funding for Cintya’s English course, providing a wheelchair for Made Minggu and Pak Gusti who suffered from a stroke, and many more.
For the coming weeks, we focus our effort to fundraise for Gede Surata who needs a prosthetic leg after his below knee was amputated due to cancer. We invite you to help and make a difference to his life. Join our twice a week quiz night in Gracie Kelly’s Irish Pub every Tuesday & Thursday at 7.30pm where you can have fun while donating for a good cause.
