RICE Sowers 2017
As we prepare to step into a new season of Gospel partnership, the RICE Movement warmly invites all those who are interested in partnering with the movement by sowing financially into it, to a unique opportunity to have dinner with the Honourable John Anderson, former Deputy Prime Minister of Australia. Our third ‘RICE Sowers’ black tie fundraising dinner, ‘In the West, but not of the West’ (The rise of a new generation for the Australian Church) will take place on Saturday the 21st of October 2017. The night will feature the Honourable John Anderson delivering a keynote address on the importance of Asian Australian youth in the next generation of evangelism and Gospel partnership. As Australia’s largest Asian-Australian youth movement, we agree with our speaker that RICE will be uniquely placed to see the Gospel continue to go out and bear fruit.
The cost for the evening will be $129 per person ($1290 for a table of 10). Each ticket includes a 3-course meal, specially designed for the event and curated in-house by Bryan Zhu (MasterChef contestant, 2017). Proceedings will feature a silent auction and opportunities to give to the RICE Movement throughout the night. Pre-drinks, bar service and after-dinner tea and coffee will also be available over the course of the evening.
