Sustainable HIV-AIDS work: A fundraising collaboration with the Kerti Praja Foundation, Rotary Canggu, Desa Seni and Plaga Wines.



On a beautifully balmy evening on the 3rd of September 2013, over one hundred locals and expatriots gathered in the dreamy gardens of Desa Seni, Canggu to raise funds for the HIV prevention and PLWHA support work currently being carried out by Kerti Praja.


It was heartwarming to see such enthusiasm and encouragement from attendees. The evening began with divine wines from Plaga (a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon and a delightfully crisp Sauvignon Blanc), followed by acoustic classics from local chanteuse Jo Lane. At 7.30, guests moved into the dining hall to enjoy an organic feast prepared by the chefs at Desa Seni. The event went well into the night, and everyone had an amazing time, with many not wanting to go home!


Extra special thanks go to Chris Sperduto for dreaming up the event, to Howard Klein and the wonderful staff from Desa Seni, and to Manuela Herreros, Director of Yoga, and to Juan Diaz from Plaga wines for their extremely generous donation. Thanks also so very much to the incredibly supportive members of Rotary Canggu, to Folk Art, Bali Land Office and the Bali Rainbow Community for their kind support.


The event generated over Rp. 50,000,000,00., and owing to its success, is hoped will become an annual soiree! Stay posted for an accountability report about how this extraordinary donation was used!!
