This Saturday, ring in the holidays while helping out children in need. The Beijing International Committee for Chinese Orphans (BICCO) is hosting “Unlock the Future,” a Christmas charity dinner and silent auction at Kagen. There will be live music and a variety of creative Christmas gifts at the silent auction, including spa treatments, yoga classes, custom jewelry, restaurant vouchers, and more.
Don’t know BICCO? It’s a volunteer group that focuses on improving the lives of disabled orphans and children in China. It was registered in Hong Kong as a non-profit organization in 2003, but began visiting orphanages as early as 1998. The group runs several programs: medical, educational, foster homes, and more.
All proceeds from BICCO’s Christmas charity dinner and silent auction will benefit the organization’s Shunyi Orphanage Rehabilitation Program, which brings together foreign physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and caregivers looking after disabled kids. This program allows therapists to provide a treatment program for the children, as well as giving much-needed training to caregivers.
The ticket price for BICCO’s Christmas charity dinner and silent auction includes a set menu of Kagen’s signature Japanese dishes and two cocktails. With only 200 seats available, what are you waiting for? Show your support for disabled kids and orphans by giving them the chance to receive long-term care and education.
Tickets are available at Ivy Academy. RMB 800, RMB 600 (advance). 6.30-10pm. Kagen (8451 1381, 135 2034 1984) www.bicco.cn
