Dining Out for Charity with ICONE & Friends

Watertown, 10/17/2015 - Around 40 members of our community came together to enjoy a fun and friendly fundraising luncheon at Old Country Buffet, in Watertown, Massachusetts on Saturday, October 17th, 2015. Not only that the participants can indulge themselves in varieties of tasty and fresh-made all-American favorite food, but some interesting ideas were also thrown around for future ICONE's activities that will involve many Indonesian talents here in New England in all sorts of areas of expertise.

Proceeds were dedicated to ICONE to support the future establishment of New England's Indonesian Community Center and the ongoing operation of various collaborative community empowerment programs. Three lucky diners went home with some exciting door prizes.

Thank you to all the participants, donors and ICONE's team who have made this event a successful one. There'll be more "Dining Out for Charity" events to be conducted in different venues around New England areas. So stay tune and hope to see you next time!
