2016 Charity Ball

Congratulations to all our honored guests who participated in the AmCham Kaohsiung 3rd Annual Charity Ball last night. Over 200 guests, forty some performers and fifteen volunteers attended the event. AmCham Board of Directors; Maruyama Milk Fish Farming Governor Midi Wang, Infoweb Tech. Co. Governor 陳志勇, and Kaohsiung Exhibition Center Corporation Governor Johannes F. Steinicke were joined by many other AmCham Kaohsiung members to support this event.
Last night, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, we set many records in the Annual AmCham Kaohsiung Charity Ball history. We raised over a million NTD, at a total of 1,190,600 NTD. The money raised included twelve auction items, bringing in a total of 581,500 NTD. The highest bidding item, a painting by Mr. Shen ChinMing was purchased by longtime supporter of AmCham Kaohsiung Annual Charity Ball, Mr. Larry Huang, at 180,000 NTD. The second highest bidding item was a painting by Member Juliana Huang, purchased also by Member Nancy Pai at 120,000 NTD. We sold 321 raffle tickets, also setting a record of raffle tickets sales. All proceeds of the evening will be going towards The Kaohsiung Autism Association and the Kaohsiung Autism Foundation.
A great big thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s Charity Ball become a reality. Good job friends and members of AmCham Kaohsiung!
