Ghada's Sexual Harassment Joke

Get Drunk and Save The World

A group of Cairene go-getters are getting together for a little party and a lot of goodwill as Open Nation raises money for Ghada El Amrosy's Developmental Institution this Tuesday. Find out how you can attend here.

We've all been there - it's a mid-week night and you're faced with yet another monotonous evenin of streaming crappy US TV series or feeding your cat. Well, get your frock on, get out of the house and head the Tonsy Hotel for a super summer charity ball. The sort-of swanky Dokki hotspot is set to host a private charity party on Tuesday 17th June with DJ Safi on the decks, spinning the best feel-good anthems. And the best bit is the proceeds of the event go to charity. So when your boss complains about your lateness on Wednesday you can just claim that you were out last night...SAVING THE WORLD! 

The collection will be to the benefit of Ghada El Amrosy's Developmental Institution, which takes care of young orphans with mental and physical disabilities. Event co-organiser Maria Sanchez Munoz said: "A friend of mine and I were sitting a couple of weeks ago talking about the terrible situation of many children in the streets of Cairo. We talked about all the orphans who are living in the street, with no shelter, no food, no protection, no rights. We were talking, as well, about the great work that some individuals do to help these orphans without getting anything in return. Many times, these people pay money from their pockets just to feed these children or to treat them medically. We decided to help in the way we can; by raising funds."

Each 100LE ticket will get a free drink, free snacks and the opportunity to win a wonderful Swedish Massage at Zamalek's Boutique Spa, a bottle of imported wine, a free dinner for two or an ILUV headphones.

Tickets are available on the night at the door. For more information visit the event page here
