December 2018 FEW Bonenkai Recap

The Fabulous FEW 2018 Bonenkai Featured “All That Glitters”

On the chilly night of December 7, 2018, more than 70 members, guests, and supporters joined FEW for the All That Glitters-themed Bonenkai at Dumbo Bar and Grill on the premises of The Strings Hotel Omotesando.

20181207_FEWBonenkai_Omotesando-54The glamorous atmosphere of the restaurant matched perfectly with the theme of the night, with the FEW Bonenkai team adding some more bling onto it with sparkly Christmas decorations and balloons. FEW President Riya Rapp opened the party with a speech to thank all of our members and sponsors for the productive year of 2018, and raised the toast with welcoming Kir Royal cocktails.

After the toast, the buffet including various finger foods, delicious main dishes, and theme-inspired desserts was opened. Everyone rushed to take their share. The spacious hall was soon filled with women and men chatting with friends old and new, and having a great time.

Our traditional Bonenkai charity raffle was dedicated to Women’s Eye, an NPO whose aim is to empower and mentor young women in the disaster-stricken region of Tohoku as they strive to rebuild their 20181207_FEWBonenkai_Omotesando-150communities. A whopping 120,000 JPY was raised through raffle and proceeds have been forwarded to Women’s Eye.

“We truly appreciate for the FEW’s donation. It really helps us to support women in Tohoku. The donation will be used for the next generation leadership training for the women who are making a difference in in Fukushima on the grassroots level,” shared Women’s Eye Executive Director and Co-founder Megumi Ishimoto after the event.
