Scenes from Tomato War 2021:
About the Event. Six years ago, Gordon Elliott returned from a trip to Northern Cambodia and teamed up with his friend Philip Mactaggart to help a few, less-fortunate rural communities gain access to a full education. With the help of the Tomato War and the community of Millbrook, we’ve accomplished that and much more. The generosity of the Millbrook community has enabled over 350 rural students to enter a full 12-year education program through our four schools. With the recent phase one completion of our new boarding school campus in Siem Reap, even more of our students now have access to a higher education and a pathway to a better life. WATCH OUR SHORT VIDEO ON HOW IT ALL BEGAN!
This year we have two goals. We are seeking to raise funds for the second and last phase at our Siem Reap Campus, allowing us to reach our ultimate goal of housing 100 students. Images of the new campus and final plans for the second phase of construction can be seen below. Secondly, we have added the Millbrook Early Childhood Education Center (MECEC) Scholarship Fund as a beneficiary of our event this year as well. MECEC was founded to provide local families access to a high-quality preschool program regardless of means. This outstanding preschool is committed to helping children develop a love of learning and team working skills which will serve them well for years to come.
100% of proceeds raised from ticket sales and our live auction will be donated to our beneficiaries as event costs are entirely paid for by the host.
Good people, great fun, and for a good cause; that’s what the Millbrook Tomato War is all about.
Thank you! Now let’s throw some tomatoes!
