Travel+ official photographers for SSC Charity Ride, Tomorrow!
Saturday Dec. 06th will be a big big day for a lot of people. Yes, Saigon Scooter Center will be having 300-500 bikes, mostly vintage, on a ride out to an Orphanage in Long Thanh, yes there will be a lot of fun and partying, yes this will be Travel+’s biggest event (pro-bono) coverage to date … however, I am thinking about all them joy and smiles we will be bringing to the hundreds of children. Santa is on hand to hand out all the gifts each rider will be bringing.
The ride is absolutely FREE, so if you have time, please come join us. It is going to be a day to remember.

please see below for SSC information on the ride
Following the success of the last 10 years of Charity events we have managed to donate a significant amount of funds to children’s orphanages in Ba Ria, Phu My Hung, the Red Cross Society in Cu Chi, two different orphanages in Dong Nai , and this year we turn our attention to Hoa Mai orphanage in Long Thanh which is 50km’s north of HCM City and whom we supported previously in 2007.
The events have attracted a growing number of participants and also a growing amount of media interest. The Run’s success and growth is heavily reliant upon sponsors. We are now reaching out for a greater involvement from local businesses and other interested parties for support with the 2014 event.
The Annual Charity Scooter Ride will be held this year on Saturday 6th December .
We will be meeting at the Saigon Scooter Centre An Phu shop at 35 Quoc Huong street, Thao Dien, District 2 from 8am. Drinks and light breakfast are supplied.
This years format is a little different as we will not be selling tickets but we ask for every participant to bring one of the following :
Kids toy or stationary/school books or dry food stuffs. Cash donations are also gratefully accepted. Limited edition tshirts will also be available for sale with all proceeds going to the Orphanage.
Expected departure time will be approx. 9.30am. We will then head to Cat Lai ferry with a 50km drive through the country side to Long Thanh.
Lunch break will be from 11.30 – 12.30 at Mimosa restaurant.
Following lunch a short drive to the Hoa Mai Orphangage of about 5km’s.
As per previous events in the afternoon Santa will visit, there will be a scooter/bike custom show and fun and games with the kids.
Departure time will be approx. 3.30pm with a return drive via Phu My Bridge for after party in Phu My Hung at Boomerang Bar until late with a raffle , entertainment, music and presentation for the custom show winners.
This year’s event will be enhanced to create ;
· a more enjoyable experience for participants,
· an event more attractive for media coverage,
· a better and larger return for charity
And all this translates into a bigger and better return on sponsorship dollars.
This year we are even more conscious of the value of sponsorship – not just for the charity, but for participants and sponsors as well. This year sponsorship is available at different levels and returns are geared to show appreciation and mirror the worth.
