KUTA, Bali (BPN) – Sababay Winery and Hardrock Cafe Bali held a fundraising event by inviting various motorcycle communities in Bali, on Friday. The fund collected at the event will be used to help hospitality workers affected by the pandemic through Bali Hospitality Movement (BHM).
“We invite several motorcycle communities in Bali so that they do not just have fun but also care for others through this event,” said Derry Hasibuan, Regional Sales Manager of Sababay Winery.
Derry explained that the fundraising was followed by at least 120 motorcycles that are members of the Bali Big Bike, Dk2, Ducati, Centrummed, AM Motor, Surapita Union Trans communities.
“The target is to collect at least IDR 8 million, which will be donated to Bali Hospitality Movement,” Derry said.
Derry hoped that this kind of social movement will trigger the same movement on the island amid the pandemic. “We can no longer stay still and we have to move forward with a new attitude and health protocols. There are many things we need to do,” he said.
Meanwhile, Daria Shilova, Sales and Marketing of Hard Rock Cafe Bali said that the fundraising event is a noble event can be an example for other communities to do the same.
“We are strongly supporting this event because we are also part of hospitality, and the pandemic has affected the hospitality industry around the world. This kind of activity is very good to show the international community that Bali does not just standstill. We can still be creative as long as we follow health protocols,” she explained.
Bali Hospitality Movement (BHM) has donated sembako (staple food packages) to 800 hospitality workers affected by the pandemic, since June 2020. “We will continue the donation to 700 hospitality workers in Bali,” said Jack, the representative of BHM.
