Soroptimist Glow Charity Walk 2

The Eindhoven Chapter of the Soroptimists - http://www.soroptimist.nl/ - is organizing a Glow walk for charity. The money will go to the giveahand project (www.giveahand.nl), that helps old ladies in Lettland who are in need of medical care.

Sign up: www.soroptimisten040.nl

Before the walk: Park Plaza offers a EUR 15 dollar supper (remember to make a reservation). It starts at 5pm, and 20% goes to the charity.

The walk: everyone will meet at the Park Plaza hotel at 7pm, and be assigned to a walking group. Together with a guide, we will walk the glow route. The guides will provide information on the various exhibitions (English guides will also be present), and you can then join everyone after the walk for a final ''borrel'. Costs are EUR 12.50 for adults and EUR 7.50 for children.

About Glow (http://www.gloweindhoven.nl/website/glow/glow.php?gshow=order&eventId=13&Curr=1&action=home&lId=2): Monumental buildings appearing as brightly colored candy houses in an enchanted forest, a sea of luminous water lilies, a gray colossus shrouded in Mondrian colors, a creature that rises from the waters of the Channel, the Philips Stadium as a stage for a light and sound spectacle. From 9 till November 16th 2013 the inner city of Eindhoven gets a makeover by the special light installations of GLOW. The route takes you along several locations, some of them participate in the light art festival for the first time. Last year GLOW attracted a record number of 450,000 visitors from home and abroad. On the more than four kilometers long route remarkable light art can be seen, sometimes with an active role for the viewer. Some cultural and educational institutions also present light art and exhibitions within the theme “Urban Playground”. The city of Eindhoven reveals itself as a perfect playground for the creative light artists. The visitors get sucked into their play.

Let me know if you have any questions about the meet up place, the route etc. If you are not able to come anymore, please let me know that also, so that we can adjust the numbers. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. Kind regards, Kuni

      Hello Kuni, am not quite sure how to make the reservation for the diner and what is borrel? I may just do the supper and the walk, is that still OK? Thanks, margaret

      Hello Margaret...borrel is 'drinks with snacks'. So, not a full meal, just something to nibble on. Feel free to join whatever activities you like. From my side, I will probably not be at the dinner, just joining the walk. If you send me an email, then I can send you my mobile phone# if you like. But, there should no be an enormous bunch at the park plaza, so it will definitely be fine to just turn up and look for me, or join the english speaking group. Till tomorrow! :-)

    Hey, great to see that there are already some people interesting in joining! Everyone is welcome to join, even at the last minute. However, it would be easier if you could also RSVP on the website so that the organizers can plan out the groups and make sure there are enough guides......

    Do we also need to register separately at the Soroptimist website or an RSVP here is sufficient?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
