Eat­ing for char­ity

China Daily (Canada) - - ONE WEEK FREE SMART EDITION -

Chi Fan for Char­ity in Bei­jing last week pre­sented checks to­tal­ing more than 550,000 yuan ($88,000) to two char­i­ties, Morn­ing Tears and United Foun­da­tion for China’s Health, for 2014. Chi Fan for Char­ity is a mod­ern take on the stan­dard con­cept of a large, gala char­ity din­ner, in which some of Bei­jing’s best-known per­son­al­i­ties host ta­bles at some of the city’s top restau­rants. Tick­ets ranged from 500 to 1,500 yuan per per­son, with 100 per­cent of ta­ble pro­ceeds go­ing to the two char­i­ties. Fol­low­ing din­ner, all din­ner guests and sup­port­ers were in­vited to an in­cred­i­ble af­ter­party where peo­ple could mix and min­gle and talk about the amaz­ing din­ners they just ex­pe­ri­enced. To date, Chi Fan for Char­ity has do­nated more than 3.2 mil­lion yuan to lo­cal ben­e­fi­cia­ries with all ta­ble pro­ceeds go­ing di­rectly to des­ig­nated char­i­ties.
