Tet Shoeboxes Project, a Ha Noi-based charitable project, are hosting a special fundraising event – Share the Light – this Saturday at The Grove Garden Bar in Tay Ho District.

All funds raised will go directly towards helping the Phao Village, an isolated and poor floating community living on a section of Red River under the Long Bien Bridge in Ha Noi, increase their running electricity from one hour a day to eight.

Featuring workshops, a flea market, yoga, face painting, spoken word, live art and music performances, the family-friendly event also includes some of Ha Noi’s best DJs to close the event, which runs from 10am until late.

Prizes are also available in a day long raffle, including free facials, furniture, bar and restaurant vouchers and more.

Entrance costs VND50,000 and any additional donations to the project are welcome. The Grove is located at 16A Dang Thai Mai Street, Tay Ho District. More information is available at the Facebook page — VNS
