SHENZHEN, WE THANK YOU!
What a night! We are so humbled by the generosity shown once again from our Shenzhen community.
Our goal for the night was an aggressive RMB 1.8 million. We knew this was going to be a big push and our expectations and stresses were high.
We can report that we raised RMB 1.4 million. As Adrian Blackstock sang last night,
“Aim for the moon
and you’ll land among the stars”
On behalf of the Shenzhen Charity Federation, thank you SO MUCH for being a part of our 11th year. Saturday, 12th October, once again working with the wonderful team at the Futian Shangri-la, Shenzhen, will be remembered by us for a long time.
Because of your generosity, 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
- 46 girls will start vocational schooling
- 80 girls will continue to be supported at the Seng Girls Home.
To all of our event organizers, our precious and beloved auction committee and 180 volunteers, our amazing school community, our incredible entertainers, the many companies who donated goods for auction, awesome MC and auctioneer, our incredibly generous corporate sponsors, and of course close to 600 guests – THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH. We can’t believe how fortunate we are to have your support.
We look forward to updating you over the coming year on how these projects go. Be sure to keep an eye on our website and regular project updates.
As I sign off I have one last thank you to our AMAZING auction committee co-leaders: Lynn Velez, Serena Cole and Ashley Stahle. You are the best in the business.
And our thanks to our consistent and loyal Shenzhen team. Your desire to keep doing this year after year is astounding and we are so lucky to have had such a committed and unchanging team for so many years. Your efficiency, event management and problem solving skills are world class. Many comment that our event is one of the best auction fundraisers they have attended, and that is full credit to all of you. We can’t believe that 11 years on, we are still getting better and better each year. You can feel SO PROUD of all you have achieved for the girls who cross our Captivating path. Congratulations and thank you.
To all who attended our event, we hope we have won your continuous support and will see you at our 12th Annual Captivating Charity Auction next year. Stay tuned for future updates including our event gallery of special auction moments.
Kind regards and with much thanks,
Co-Founder & CEO
