Heavy Rain, Heavy Hearts

2 Apr 2017 in Charities

Vietnam is Awesome is the premier group in Vietnam connecting expats, locals, and tourists together. The overall aim of the group is to create a positive experience for the members and help increase the popularity of tourism in Vietnam. We are now organizing events and want to support some really great charities and groups who help individuals and other issues in and around Vietnam.

SAIGON SOS x VIETNAM IS AWESOME was very excited to invite you to the LOVE VIETNAM ROOFTOP PARTY presented by MAGNERS at Cafe-Restaurant’s lovely rooftop terrace on Saturday 1st April, 7 pm until Midnight.

Even though there was a torrential rainstorm, the excitement of the event wasn’t dampened. We had over 160 guests show up to have the best time possible with chances to not only win up top 200,000,000vnd but also help a great cause.

The LOVE VIETNAM ROOFTOP PARTY supported the EARTH DAY CLEAN UP 2017: Join the wave event, where volunteers will be gathering in communities all around Vietnam on April 22nd, making a huge effort to pick up trash to help maintain the natural beauty of this awesome country!

At the April 1 Love Vietnam Rooftop Party, people experienced:

- Amazing prizes & giveaways from generous sponsors, worth more than $6,500 (150,000,000+ VND) (prize/sponsor list below)

- Fantastic food & drinks, views, and party-goers

- Top music & DJs all night

- MC & Magician Petey Majik Nguyen

- Exciting & fun activities for meeting new people

- A great way to support cleaning up beautiful Vietnam

At the Love Vietnam Rooftop Party, guests walked away with some brilliant giveaways, including beachside holidays, free English lessons, some of the best food in Saigon, and much more!

There were many fun ways to win prizes & giveaways during the event, including Blind Date, Magners Bean Bag Toss, Limbo, Hula Hoop, Prize Raffles, and Auctions!!

The fantastic folks at Magners Asia 邁格士蘋果酒 - were the main sponsors for the event and contributed their delicious products, essential items, and staff to support the party. Platinum Beer was THE exclusive draft beer provider for the night, as well as donating a FREE keg of Platinum Keller beer from 6-7pm!

This was the perfect chance to meet all the wonderful Vietnam Is Awesome members, Saigon SOS supporters, and support a great cause - helping to keep Vietnam's natural beauty. We are dedicated to bringing the best events in Ho Chi Minh City for all the members of the group and the community as well. Our next event will be in May, so make sure to continue to support the group and check for updates and details.
