- Parents' Association
A favorite amongst our parents, staff, and community members, the highly anticipated event offers an opportunity to support a charitable cause, as well as to celebrate art created by our very own early childhood students. Back after a one-year hiatus, the fundraiser was back and a huge success with over RMB 70,000 raised towards life-saving heart surgeries!
This year, the event was generously hosted by the Hongqiao Marriott hotel. Held in the hotel’s main atrium, canapes and free-flow drinks were served, along with some delicious treats by one of our Bronze sponsors, Epermarket.
During the evening, attendees browsed the silent auction packages, filled with restaurant vouchers like Geneva and Sherpa’s, Huffy bikes, BeMa luggage, Subconscious Day Spa, a Brut Cake sofa, and more. They also viewed the 18 pieces of art created by our Early Childhood Education (ECE) students.
Under the guidance of their teachers, students worked for months to create beautiful pieces of art, each representing friendship, connection, and their time in Shanghai.
As the live auction took a break, guests took a free spin on the prize spinner, winning prizes from Jump360, Chapter 22, SkinCity, Kitivity, SuperModel Fit, Din Tai Feng, and more. Raffles were also drawn for sponsored prizes from Sunflower Art, Renai Hospital, Rains, Cookie Dokie, and All Blu.
As the auctions wrapped up, the competition became heated! The top bid went to Ms. Meghan Hinds' class. The classroom’s artwork, title “Taking a Break in the Shanghai Skyline” was auctioned for a remarkable 5200RMB!
All of the beautiful pieces of art found a happy home and all guests took home a lucky draw prize including assorted vouchers from AKS, Lilliput, and SkinCity. The attendees had a chance to have a caricature portrait drawn on-site as well as speak with Heart to Heart (H2H) volunteers and purchase H2H bears.
Over RMB 70,000 Raised
Overall, the event collected over RMB 70,000, enough funding for two life-saving heart surgeries for Chinese children in need. Heart to Heart provides support and financial assistance to underprivileged Chinese children who require heart surgery to repair their congenital heart defects.
A big thank you to all of our sponsors, especially our Platinum sponsors, All Blu, Sunflower Art Education, Green and Safe, Renai Hospital, NNCZ Youth Sports, GreenWave, Kitivity, Skin City 5.5, Ch. 22, Kingbond, and Ritz Carlton Pudong.
The SCIS ECE PAFA team is excited to continue to work with Heart To Heart in the future through monthly volunteering, clothing drives, and fundraising efforts.
