It was “An Evening with the Stars” on Saturday night of March 2, 2013 for the parents, staff, and friends who attended the Parent Organisation Pudong Gala Dinner. Upon arrival, guests pressed their way through the (student) paparazzi before making their way to the “red carpet”, and then on to dinner and dancing!
This annual Gala event is held to raise money for Heart to Heart Shanghai. In 2012, the Gala funded 11 life-saving operations for Chinese children with heart defects, and this year the goal was to help 14 children. The Parent Organisation is thrilled to announce that the event exceeded its target and raised over RMB 398,000 yuan for Heart to Heart Shanghai, enough to sponsor surgeries for 16 children. This incredible result was all due to the generous contributions of YCIS parents and sponsors.
Co-Principals Mary Yu and Damien Hehir offered their thanks with a special mention to all the wonderful parent members of the organising committee who put an enormous amount of time and energy into making it a sensational and successful evening. Thank-you also went to the parents and students who supported the charity through donating generously to the “Avenue of Stars”, and the many sponsors of the event.
