Bali, Indonesia – Last Saturday the Community Assist 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament took place at Canggu Community School, a fundraiser to help survivors of the earthquakes in Lombok. We were able to collect 50 million Rupiah ($3,385 USD)! It was a hugely successful event with four teams registered to our Pro (student) Division, nineteen teams playing in the Open (adult) division, fourteen businesses set up in the Community Marketplace, and over 40 sponsors who graciously donated items for our Raffle and Silent Auction! A big THANK YOU to everyone who came out to the tournament this past Saturday.
Indosole organised it together with our tournament partners Canggu Community School and House of PNNY. The Canggu Community School offers an international learning environment for students from Preschool, Kindergarten, Primary, or Elementary School on to Secondary or High school. PNNY is a DJ collective made up of local artists - both groups are made up of passionate, talented people without whom the concept of this tournament would never have been conceived nor executed.
The proceeds of this tournament will be donated to the The Shelter Project – a global disaster relief initiative in Lombok, Indonesia. In July 2018, the island of Lombok was struck by a devastating Earthquake. Whilst news coverage has faded, villages remain in rubble and thousands of families have still been left without a home. The Shelter Project wants to build an initial 100 shelters. Check out their website to learn more about their initiative.
