Cheer All

Salam, May you are all in good health condition.

Let me start my email with thank God and  congratulation for very successful participation at IFF and Talent Show festival. I also want to convey the gratitude and high appreciation from Event Organizer Manager also from Event vice Manager for our participation and show of community and professionalism.

Our performances were very well received and cheered.  Led by ibu Enny, Dharma Wanita coordinated the performance of Saman Dance carried over by son and daughter of KBRI staff  Anisha Akhyar, Lubna Moeljawan, Sami Moeljawan,  Musa Moeljawan, Farhan Taufik, Zaki Taufik, Nico, Romano Sugianto, Cleo Sugianto and Immanuel Swasono .  On the second performance Imad Rehman showcased his orator skill and impress the attendance with theme “Being the youngest in the family”.  Their performance were applauded and enjoyed by everyone who were in attendance.

I personally thank you to everyone who volunteered, who attended and supported ICC  through donation and prayer so that we can fully participate in fund raising event organized by Youth Yemen and HCI for medical aid in Yemen via HCI.

My utmost appreciation to trio organizer ibu Susi, Ibu Soesi and ibu Iis led by ibu Susi as ICC-IFF Event Manager to plan, prepare and coordinate this event from getting the info, spreading and collecting donations and participation, keeping tab and document, but also they were preparing food, cooking for donation food, servicing table, cleaning and closing after the event and so much other detail work to make this event successful.

I am thankful for generous contribution from trio family members of Indonesian community(all are member of ICC and Indonesian Muslim in Ottawa) in Montreal and Ottawa which donate initial $500 to allow us securing 2 tables for our participation in this festival without using organizations funds which then increase execution  motivation to move forward.

I also appreciate the volunteer for food tables servicing that greet customer with respect, polite and smiles to make the food selling a great success and able to collect net sale of almost $600 with almost no left over food behind. This team is play a key role to show Indonesia warm-hearted, friendly neighborly and graciously displayed by ibu Retty, ibu Nina, ibu Iis, ibu Meta, ibu Shelly, ibu Soesi and mbak Sara.

Off course the tables will be empty without generous donation from member of community in Ottawa and Gatineau. I acknowledge the donation and vendor participation from (I apologize if I miss any)

I pray to God Almighty to reward and more for all generosity and prayer from all community members support while kindness and goodness will flourish within us Indonesian community in Canada.

To the end I would like to summarize ICC at IFF fund raising result as follow:

  • Donation for 2 tables: $500
  • Net proceed of donated food: $639.25
    • Gross sale of donated foods $639.25
    • Cutlery disposable cost $35.00
    • Raffle ticket deduction $10.00
    • Net Proceed: $639.25 – $35.00 – $10.00 = $594.25
  • Vendor Contribution – $97
    • Food vendors  : $34
    • Art Craft Clothing: $63

I have paid the $500 prior to the festival and after the festival as we decided during ICC meeting that net proceed from food donation will be split evenly between ICC and IFF/HCI and to that effect we have $594.25 divide by 2 as $297.125 and round up to $300 donated to IFF/HCI. So we have donated $800 to the cause at this event. Receipts are available here http://www.indonesiacanada.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/ICC-at-IFF.pdf 

Remaining of funds $594.25 – $300 = $294.25 plus vendor contribution of $97 to the total of $391.25 will be placed to ICC funds.

Again thank you for all support and apologize for any shortcoming or misunderstanding.  Hopefully we can work and have fun together again in the future events as one best community in Canada.

 

Salam

Sanda Uttama
