HotPot is a micro-granting dinner, where projects that benefit the local community are funded through donations made at the door. All funds raised go to the winning project (voted by the audience) which can be small or part of a more ambitious plan. Projects are vetted and declared eligible prior to the event, so that the money is handed over on the night. The only requirement is that the winning team comes back to provide an update at the next event.
Lighthouse launched the HotPot concept in 2015 and it is set to become an annual event.
