On Tuesday, May 9, over 80 people joined together to raise funds for Community Center Shanghai (CCS).

Established in 1998, CCS was founded with a purpose to enable, connect and support internationals in Shanghai to build a beautiful life in this thriving city.

CCS does this by responding to the ever-changing needs and providing relevant programming, enabling them to maximize their potential while in China.

With support from guests’ donations and over 20 sponsors, CCS raised more than RMB42,000.

The event was located in a beautifully restored garden villa on Fumin Lu sponsored by XIAO YOU Asset Management, that had only been accessible to the public via appointment less than a month prior.

The sexy tapas were sponsored by Tomatito and a bevy of wines generously donated by Ray’s Fine Wines.

Attendees also enjoyed a special art exhibition called Stairways, inspired by the iconic spiral stairway that greets everyone upon entry.
