Event Description

Come celebrate the end of another year and get ready for a big year ahead with our annual B4B bonenkai blowout! 

This year we are collaborating with J-Seed and Connect The Dots, a diverse group of Japan-based entrepreneurs, to warmly welcome Room to Read CEO Erin Ganju to Tokyo.

Doors open at 7PM and Erin will be making an brief presentation about the amazing entrepreneurial growth of Room to Read at 7:30PM followed by music by DJ Fokus and a raffle prize drawing at 9PM.  Get there early to hear the presentation and stay late to enjoy the party.

For those of you new to Beers for Books, the concept is simple: For every drink you have 100 yen will be donated to Room to Read and that buys a treasured book for children via Room to Read.

Room to Read is an amazing NPO whose mission is to provide quality educational opportunities to children in developing countries with the goal of empowering kids via literacy and gender equality in education. Room to Read has projects in 10 countries in Asia and Africa including Nepal, Cambodia, Zambia, etc. For more details see or in Japanese

There is no cost to join the event but we'll have a 1000 yen suggested donation at the door which gets you three raffle tickets for the raffle prize drawing.

RSVP's are not required but helpful for planning, you can send a mail to gary(at) or just mark "Going" on the Facebook event page here:Please feel free to share this with friends you think might enjoy it.  Hope to see you there!
