Proceeds raised during the event will help local children in the Qingdao area supplement school tuition and provide financial assistance for children in need of medical attention, specifically congenital heart disease.  The Qingdao Expat Charity is entirely dependent on donations and completely run by volunteers.   The Charity supports over 65 students at schools in Jimo, Pingdu, and Laishi.  Over the last year, the Charity has supported 6 children in need of heart operations.  With your help, the Qingdao Expat Charity can continue to make a difference in the lives of these children.

Tickets are on sale now and only sold in advance.  No tickets will be sold at the door.  Please contact us at wechat: qdexpatcharity or email at qdexpatcharity@yahoo.com for more information.  Looking forward to seeing you there!

Qingdao Expat Charity Sponsorship

Since 2001, the QINGDAO EXPAT CHARITY’s mission has been to give back to the Qingdao community by supporting disadvantaged children, supplement tuition, improve rural school conditions, and provide vital financial assistance for children in need of medical attention, specifically congenital heart disease.

Because of our connection with the Qingdao expat community and donor base, the QINGDAO EXPAT CHARITY events have been huge success with a loyal following.  Our last year’s 2016 Havana Night Gala was our biggest fundraising event ever, and created such a buzz in the community that people were asking for another event in the fall.  With such high demand, our Qingdao Expat Charity September Backyard BBQ sold out of the available 300 tickets in less than a week and Oktober Fest at Bierstube German Restaurant sold out within 48 hours.  Highly regarded in the community, the QINGDAO EXPAT CHARITY was invited to participate in the German Wine Festival at the Marina and the ISQ Christmas fair at Baishan.

We are pleased to announce the highly anticipated QINGDAO EXPAT CHARITY GALA will be held on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at the Hyatt Hotel.   The festive theme this year is MARDI GRAS!

With an expected attendance of over 300 guests, our Mardi Gras gala is the perfect event to show your company’s community support.  Not only will it help in raising funds for children in need, but it will offer great exposure for your business.  Your donation will be acknowledged and publicized to our guests throughout the event.

Please review the link below for our sponsor package (in English and Chinese) to see how your company’s contribution can best fit our Charity’s goals.

We look forward to this partnership and your participation in our Mardi Gras gala!  Thank you in advance!

2017年1月20日

我们很高兴地宣布,大家热切期盼的青岛外籍人士慈善基金会的舞会将在2017年3月18日周六在鲁商凯越举办。今年的主题是狂欢嘉年华!。

从2001年成立开始,基金会的宗旨就是通过各种慈善活动来回馈青岛,包括定向资助学龄儿童,帮助他们支付学费,改善农村地区的校舍环境,以及给来自贫困家庭、急需先天性心脏病矫正手术的儿童捐赠手术费用。

在青岛外籍人士和捐赠各方的坚定支持下,基金会的系列活动取得了巨大的成功。去年的“哈瓦那之夜”是有史以来最大的一次募捐活动,它的成功使得人们一直在期盼秋天能有其它活动。在各方企盼中,9月“后院烧烤日”活动在短短的一周就售完了300张入场券,10月份“德国美食日”门票在48小时内售罄。由于良好的声誉,青岛外籍人士慈善基金会被邀请参加德国红酒节和ISQ国际学校的圣诞义卖会。

300多位客人参加的狂欢舞将会是一个完美的机会来展现贵公司对青岛社区的支持。这次活动不仅帮助我们给有需要的儿童筹款,同时也能大力宣传您的业务及产品。贵公司的捐赠将在舞会上公布并广而告之。具体细节请详阅捐赠套餐。

我们期待和您的合作,并期盼您来参加狂欢舞会!多谢您的支持!

您真诚的,

German Wine Festival 9/9-9/11

The Qingdao Expat Charity is  very excited to be a part of the German Wine Festival this year. The German Wine Festival graciously invited us to participate so the Charity can raise funds for local children in need of heart operations.

Located in the Olympic Marina on the deck No.2 (Darling Harbor area), the festival will open on Friday, September 9th through Sunday, September 11th. It will be a festive, three day event where you can taste wines from Germany and Austria, eat an array of typical German and local specialties, as well as listen to live music!

The Qingdao Expat Charity will hold a charity auction on Friday night at 8:00pm.  Throughout the event, we will sell homemade baked goods, Caribbean chili and a Qingdao souvenir tote and pencil bags, custom-designed for our Charity! All proceeds raised from our sales will go directly to help the children we support!

Wines from Germany (Pfalz, Rheinhessen) and Austria (Carnuntum) will be served by  glass or bottles, along wine cocktails, beer and non alcoholic drinks. The food section will feature German typical delicacies served by Lisa’s, Imported Cheeses by Swissmooh, Sushi by Raki, Fresh Sandwiches and Bread by 7 Senses, Häagen Dazs Ice Creams, Local Seafood by Mingyan,  and Homemade Baked Goods and Chili by the Qingdao Expat Charity.  This is a family event, so please bring the kiddies!  Fun Club will be providing a  blocked off “kiddie corner” for kids to play, while the parents enjoy the festival!
