OUR 2021 CHARITY AUCTION GOAL
RMB 1.5 MILLION

On October 16th, 2021, in collaboration with the SHENZHEN CHARITY FEDERATION,
Captivating is holding their 13th Annual Captivating Charity Auction.

CAPTIVATING, in full collaboration with the SHENZHEN CHARITY FEDERATION,
works with registered grassroots Chinese charities to implement and expand their life changing programs across Qinghai, Sichuan, Yunnan and Guizhou provinces.

With your support, 1,000 underprivileged students, young women, moms,
and their children will see their lives progress this year.

Our Mission
We believe within every child lives the potential for greatness – something of incredible value they can offer to their world. For some, much of this value is lost because of poverty or prejudice. Our mission is to see disadvantaged, impoverished, poorest-of-the-poor children soar – see them reach out for a better tomorrow.

Become a CORPORATE SPONSOR at our October 16 event.

Silent and Live Auctions

Friday, October 1st: Silent and Live Auction Items Ready to Preview HERE
Saturday, October 9th: Silent Auction Online Bidding Starts HERE
Saturday, October 16th: Event Day!

The Art Auction Preview: An Evening of Short Stories, was created last year to highlight a category of incredible donations that sometimes need a little more time before a serious investment. And there are some hidden gems! Come and find out more about the amazing art donations and the artists behind them. Some of these very special artists (international and local) have spent up to a month of their time creating amazing work to help provide real solutions and hope to some of the most underprivileged girls, women and their children in rural China, so we don’t want you to miss them! We’re thrilled that this category continues to grow and LOVE the stories behind each piece.

Saturday, Oct 17, 2020 – In a year where so many people are finding life challenging due to COVID, we have been once again  so humbled by the generosity shown by our Shenzhen and wider community. Our goal for the night was to raise RMB 1.5 million and we were completely unsure what to expect coming into the night. Although an exact result is yet to be finalized, early indications indicate we have raised RMB1.26 million. WE ARE THRILLED.  SHENZHEN, YOU ARE AMAZING!

On behalf of the Shenzhen Charity Federation, thank you SO MUCH for being a part of our 12th year, Saturday, 17th October, 2020.  And, once again, our thanks to the wonderful team at the Futian Shangri-la, Shenzhen.

Together, as a result of the generosity of everyone who attended, 1,000 lives (single moms, young women, and their children) will one day look back on 2020 as a turnaround year for them. A year of new beginnings and fortune.

Over these next 12 months (some starting within a matter of weeks):

  • 125 single moms will start their own pig businesses and better support their 400 children and aging parents;
  • 150 women with be trained as assistant chefs and professional tailors, then mentored into their first job. This will help them better support their 450 children and parents; and
  • 100 teenage girls will get back to school by starting a career of their choosing at vocational school. They will be joining another 200 girls already enrolled in this program.

Thank you SO MUCH for your support of our 10th year in China. Saturday night, 13th October, will be remembered for a long time as a night of grace, emotion, laughter, excitement, astonishment and exceeding generosity. Together, you raised RMB1.4million, helping Captivating in partnership with the Shenzhen Charity Federation, Shamtse Charity and LOVEQTRA, to seal the deal on impacting the lives of close to 1,000 girls this calendar year. SHENZHEN, YOU DID IT. 

Having set an aggressive aim of raising RMB1.5 millions, we only dreamed we could get this close. In the process, over the coming 12 months (some starting within a matter of weeks):

100 single moms will start with own pig business

100 families will own their own greenhouse

400 children will be more secure in their schooling

427 women will attend health training

Saturday, October 22, 2016 – once again saw guests filling the grand ballroom of the Futian Shangri-La, Shenzhen China, in support of the Annual Captivating Charity Auction. The event, now in its 8th year, was run in partnership with the Shenzhen Charity Federation – a fantastic partnership that will continue into the future. The evening was amazing. The results were worth it. Net revenue for the night after deducting event and venue expenses was an amazing RMB 1.08million. Through Captivating’s charity partners: The Shenzhen Charity Federation; SHAMTSE; and LOVEQTRA (The Seng Girls Home), funds raised from this year’s event were used to impact the lives of more than 1,000 girls and many of their families in remote locations of Western China. With a focus on solutions such as greenhouses, solar panels, animal husbandry, health education and vocational school scholarships, Captivating and their partners made dreams come true thanks to the generosity of donors and sponsors like you.

Saturday, October 17, 2015 marked Captivating International’s 7th Annual Charity Gala & Auction once again at the glamorous Futian Shangri-La. Attended by a record breaking (and maximum capacity) 597 guests from Shenzhen and Hong Kong, the evening was awarded the ‘best event ever’ label by many long-term event attendees. Our thanks to an amazing auction committee and team for so many hours of dedicated work. The results were worth it, raising HK$1.6m (US$215k) to support the work in Nepal and Western China.


Saturday, October 11, 2014 marked Captivating International’s 6th Annual Charity Gala & Auction at the Futian Shangri-La, Shenzhen, China. Attended by 530 guests largely from Shenzhen’s foreign community, the event started with an amazing high energy dance performance by students from local international schools, QSI & SIS, along with several girls from the Seng Girls Vocational School and Home program. This wonderful dance set the tone for the night to the theme, “We are full of Wonder” – testament to the fact that all children around the world have so much to offer, and yet many cannot do so because of poverty, injustice or prejudice. Thanks to amazing sponsors, donors and auction winners, RMB1.56 million was raised to support work in Western China through approved local charities.
