On 30 April, Rotary Club of Beijing announced that their annual charity ball will take place on 15 June  at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beijing. Tickets are 1,200 RMB per person and are available now. Those who purchase group tickets early can get 10 tickets for 10,000 RMB. All proceeds benefit the charitable projects of Rotary Club of Beijing.  

“Rotary Club of Beijing’s volunteers, all long-term residents of China, are committed to making our city a better place to live for everyone. This annual event is a great way to have fun with friends while at the same time making a positive difference in our Beijing home,” said Rotary Club of Beijing president David van Meerendonk.

Library Project for Rural and Urban Schools and Sichuan Earthquake Relief.

This annual gala is the club’s largest charity event of the year. The most international ball in Beijing, last year hundreds of Chinese and foreign attendees came from industry, entertainment and media. The event, with a theme of The Roaring 20’s, includes a cocktail reception, gourmet dinner, excellent wine, late night bar, live entertainment, and swing dancing on the ballroom floor.

“Rotarians are volunteers who are committed to charitable causes here in Beijing,” said Dominic Lyncker, Chairperson of this year’s ball.

There are 1.2 million Rotarians and 33,000 Rotary Clubs on all seven continents. The Beijing club is an independent club that is a part of this large international Rotary family. For more information, visit Rotary Club of Beijing at www.beijingrotary.org.
