A total of $5,865/- was raised through ticket proceeds ($2,490), donation box ($175) and auction ($3,200).
Tern does not just believe in making great folding bikes, they also believe in giving back. After all, the award winning bike manufacturer donates 1% of their net profits to social and environmental causes each year. Hence, it comes as no surprise when Tern decided to swoop into town on 3rd May 2013 for a fund raiser for the Children’s Cancer Foundation. The fund raising event which was specially put together by Luminari Enterprise Pte Ltd, was held at the Biopolis Matrix Auditorium.
During the session, Vice-President Joshua Hon shared in great detail what Tern as a company stood for and how they were able to achieve great success in a short span of time. Product Designer Eric Lin was also present to give insights on the technical aspects and the stringent tests that their bicycles and components undergo.
The proud owner of the Pirate Ninja.
In support of the event, Tern donated one of their latest and fastest two-wheelers, “The Pirate Ninja” Eclipse X20. Now this sleek looking black ninja is not just fast enough to chase down roadies, it is also “stealthy enough to slip – folded and shrouded – into the subway unnoticed” according to Tern. The Pirate Ninja was eventually auctioned off at $3,200 by a keen buyer and together with fans of Tern, many of whom rode to the event with their “head-terning” bikes, a total of $5,865/- was raised for the chosen beneficiary, the Children’s Cancer Foundation.
