Though most of the roster is filled up, there are still a couple spaces open for sumo wrestlers in our Sumo on the Suzhou competition. Namely, we need: THREE women competitors and ONE male competitor. Do sign up, it’s promising to be awesome! Instructions below:
If you would like to enter the competition, email [email protected] Your 150rmb donation will be collected on the evening.
Meanwhile, we now know what our winners are getting:
- 1st Prize: a 500rmb voucher from Sherpa’s
- 2nd Prize: a bottle of Asbach brandy
- 3rd Prize: a Shanghai Expat umbrella and some drinks vouchers for the night
Plus, there will be a chance to win a 250rmb voucher to Annion Kitchen if you get the most sponsors as a sumo wrestler, and a host of other prizes through our raffle – so besides donating money to charity, drinking cheap drinks and watching athletes throw themselves at each other in fat suits… you can also walk away with something nice.
In case you’ve forgotten what this is all for:
We’re providing health kits for rural children in Yunnan Province. Proper hygiene ensures that children can spend less time sick at home or spending half their parents’ yearly wages to treat easily preventable illnesses like dysentery.
To come and observe the fight, the ticket fee is 25rmb. With your 25rmb entry fee, you donate one kit that includes hygienic info pamphlets, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and soap. A portion of the proceeds from the evening will also be donated to the Japanese Red Cross Earthquake Fund.
The event will be on Friday, June 10, 2011. It will be held at River South Art Center, 1247 Nan Suzhou Lu near Xinzha Lu (南苏州路1247号进新闸路). Doors at 7pm. The fighting kicks off full-force at 8pm.
