The University of Papua New Guinea East New Britain Students Association will be hosting a mini fundraiser from 9am to 4pm today at the Stop & Shop Central Waigani carpark.
Association President Mr Ezra Kereku said this mini fundraiser will help host the East New Britain Night which in turn will help the association raise funds for their end of year election awareness and book drive project back in the province.
Mr. Kereku said the aim this year is to carry out two projects, a Book Drive Project which is a continuation of the book donation drive that started in 2019 and the introduction of a new project which is the Election Awareness Project to go out and educate the local communities in the province about the election processes.
“We are now giving a chance to those who have not purchased a ticket yet to meet us today at the venue to get yourself a ticket to help us with our end of year projects,” said Mr Kereku.
As part of the associations fundraising drive towards implementing their holiday projects at the end of this year, the association will be hosting its first ever major fundraising dance event on the 20th August at the Lamana Gold Club.
“It is our ENB Night fundraising dance event and there will be a special live performance by the king of South Pacific music Patti Potts Doi so it will be a chance to enjoy next Friday night”, said Ezra.
The association will will be selling hot dogs, soft drinks and ENB printed T-shirts as well as tickets for the fundraising dance.
