OUR 2020 CHARITY AUCTION GOAL
RMB 1.5 MILLION

On October 17th, 2020, in collaboration with the SHENZHEN CHARITY FEDERATION,
Captivating is holding their 12th Annual Captivating Charity Auction.

EVERY THREE HOURS a girl somewhere in China, Nepal or the Philippines has her life significantly and positively impacted by a Captivating supported program.
Tonight’s event is all about CHINA. Help us keep our China partners and programs progressing.

With your support, 1,000 young women, single moms, and their children in Western China will see their lives transformed 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 17 event.

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, Oct 14, 2017 Because you cared57 girls received a second chance at getting an education; Over 300 women received desperately needed medical exams and health and hygiene education for themselves and to share with their daughters; 100 new greenhouses were funded allowing families to keep their kids in school; 104 single mothers started their own pig breeding business after receiving expert training and two breeding sows. 100 girls at the Seng Girls Home continued in their education program. HUGE thanks to our Shenzhen community of supporters. 2017 was our best fundraising result EVER. See you next year.

 


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.
