ELI raises funds for Makuchari charity event

31 05 2010

The ELI raised over Y70,000 for the student-run Makuchari charity event at Kanda University of International Studies on May 16, 2010.  The “ELI Cakes and Cookies” food stall was a hit –  everything was sold and had, “…many people coming back for more and telling us how good they tasted,” according to lecturer Ashley Moore. Since 2005 Kanda students organize the yearly Makuhari Charity Flea Market, or Makuchari for short, to raise money for charity. This year Moore led the elevated ELI participation in Makuchari, with over 30 ELI members baking treats such as cookies, breads, and cakes for the stall. Please watch the video report for more!
