FEW 35th Anniversary Bonenkai: FEWturistic

On Friday, December 9, over 75 FEW members, guests, partners and supporters came together at The Classica Omotesando to  celebrate at FEW’s 35th Anniversary Bonenkai: FEWTuristic. The evening provided a great opportunity to reflect on the past 35 years of FEW, celebrate the stories, successes and connections made throughout 2016, and toast to a prosperous FEWture.

Thanks to the generosity of attendees in purchasing raffle tickets, we were able to raise 95,000 yen which will help seven underprivileged children attend Mirai no Mori Back to Nature program or help Second Harvest Japan serve meals to over 3,500 people in need during the holiday season.

With Special Thanks:
*To the staff at The Classica Omotesando for hosting us
*To Tia Haygood of TopTia for capturing the evening
*To former FEW President, Sarah Furuya, for a lovely toast to start off the party
*To Mana Nishioka of Second Harvest Japan and Kozue Ota of Mirai no Mori for the amazing work that you do to help those in need and for inviting the FEW community to be part of something wonderful
