Looking Ahead...

Heart to Heart Charity Fundraiser Quiz


There is only one thing better than testing the old gray matter, and that is testing the old gray matter for a great cause. So great news: there is a charity fundraiser quiz at Cages for Heart to Heart next Friday. Entry is RMB50 a head which includes a free beer, with 100% of that fee (and any further donations – go on, dig deep) going towards sponsoring a child for heart surgery. Those lovely people at Cages will also donate 10% of bar revenue on the night to H2H, and are offering up three fantastic prizes for the clever clogs that do best. But the real prize will be the money raised saving a life. That's reason to come along all by itself.

Mar 5, 7.30pm; RMB50 per quizzer. Cages 3/F, Jing'an Sports Center, 428 Jiangning Lu, by Wuding Lu  江宁路428号静安体育中心3楼, 近武定路.
