To conclude, this event was a huge success for School on the Boat. A good affluence, with around 300 people along the day. A very good mood, people were all following the spirit, having fun and share good vibes together. Very good feedback by the public who loved the concerts, we have to say that they did something amazing this night. A very good result, we raised more than 42 million Vietnamese dong (+/- 1850 $).
