Tickets for Chi Fan For Charity are on sale now, with 64 of Beijing’s top restaurants participating in the sixth edition of the eat, drink, and be merry fundraising initiative.
Set for the evening of Saturday, November 7, this annual event follows a simple formula: Restaurants donate a three-course meal with wine for a party of 10. Each table is hosted by a community personality. Every participant pays RMB 500 to 1,500 per person, depending on the venue, with all of that money going directly to that year’s charity partners. All participants may also attend the after-party, to be hosted again this year at Xian at EAST Hotel Beijing.
This year’s charity partners are Educating Girls of Rural China (EGRC), which has sponsored over 500 young women from poor rural regions of Western China to achieve high school and university education with 100 percent graduation rate; and Bethel Foundation, which serves the blind and visually impaired orphaned population throughout China by providing a sustainable solution for each sponsored child.
Founded in 2009 with a mission of giving back to the Beijing community, Chi Fan for Charity (CFFC) is a modern take on the standard concept of a large, gala charity dinner. To date, Chi Fan for Charity has donated more than RMB 3,700,000 to local beneficiaries with 100 percent of table proceeds going directly to our designated charities.
