Sunday, October 16th was an eventful day for ABC.
The afternoon was devoted to our “A Silent Auction of Migrant Children Artwork” event held at Lanson Place Central Park Residences. The event highlighted 21 pieces of artwork drawn and painted by migrant students participating in our TALENT Art Program which offers weekly art courses at four migrant schools throughout Beijing. In addition, free on-site spa treatments were provided by Hummingbird Therapeutic Retreat. Vouchers to Hummingbird Therapeutic Retreat and the Fitness Club of Central Park were also given to winning bidders.
In the evening, ABC was selected as the charitable beneficiary of the October meal hosted by Beijing Foodies at Spice Factory. Over 80 people attended the dinner featuring an array of mouth-watering dishes including Sonin Law Eggs, Duck and Lychee Salad, and Chicken Peanut Curry. Jennifer Kim, our Associate Director, was on hand to provide a brief introduction about ABC.
All proceeds from these two events will go towards continued improvement of our TALENT and DREAM Programs. We thank everyone who made these two events such great successes for all their dedication and support. A special thanks for Lanson Place, the British School of Beijing, the Hutong, Yew Chung International School of Beijing, Hummingbird Therapeutic Retreat, and the Fitness Center of Central Park for sponsoring our auction event. Additionally, we would like to thank Beijing Foodies for designating ABC as their charitable beneficiary.
