CELEBRATE SOCIAL CHANGE – A DOCO SCREENING TO GET YOU SPINNING
A documentary tracking 10 young professionals as they cycle the 400 kilometres from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, to Siem Reap, Cambodia, raising money for not-for-profit organisation ‘Carpets for Communities’ (CfC) will screen in Hobart on 10 December.
Regional Manager of the Carpets for Communities Hobart Chapter, Jacob Wessman said that the event will bring together guests looking to learn more about social change and social innovation.
“We’ll be doing a special screening of Spinning Dreams Cambodia, as well as providing a networking reception, silent auction, raffle draw and entertainment throughout the night,’ Jacob said.
Filmed in 2010 by LateNite films, it follows the six-day journey of Gone Cyclin’, a Singapore-based initiative made up of individuals passionate for sports and raising money for, and awareness of, sustainable causes.
Through the Spinning Dreams project, the Gone Cyclin’ team has so far raised more than $60,000 for CfC.
“Proceeds from the documentary screening will go towards returning at risk children to school and to support programs that ensure children are provided the chance of a quality education,” said Jacob.
CfC has been operating since 2005 and has so far assisted 37 families, returned 180 children to school and supported four adolescents to go to university.
The event will kick off at 6pm on Tuesday 10 December at the Old Woolstore Apartment Hotel in Hobart.
The evening will also include appetisers, silent auction, a raffle draw and other entertainment throughout the night.
