December 2015 FEW Bondilicious Bonenkai Recap

On Friday, December 11, over 80 FEW member secret agents, guests, partners and supporters gathered together at the Pink Cow Roppongi for FEW’s  annual Bonenkai !  Inspired by the infamous bond movies, the evening provided a truly  memorable way to pull the trigger on 2015 and celebrate the 34th year of FEW.

You can relive the evening here!

Thanks to the generosity of attendees in purchasing raffle tickets in support of our community service strategic partners Mirai no Mori and Second Harvest Japan, we were able to raise 118,000 yen to go towards the important work that they do. This was on top of the 16,000 yen raised at the Bondilicious Boot Camp held the previous week and led by ASAS Fitness founder, Lisa Gravestock.
