Event Report: June 29th Independence Day Charity Celebration

On the evening of June 29th at the newly opened Crowne Plaza Panda Garden, the American Chamber of Commerce hosted its seventh annual American Independence Day Charity celebration.  Approximately 800 attendees gathered in the Crowne Plaza’s beautiful outdoor courtyard complete with a manmade beach and swimming pool.  A live rock and roll band kicked off the event as guests excitedly streamed in.

Speeches were given by AmCham Southwest Chairman, Benjamin Wang and US Consulate General, Peter Haymond.  Guests that night included consulate officers, local Chinese government officials, upper management from foreign companies, their families and friends.  The event was sponsored by 48 different companies to help make the event a great success.

Guests enjoyed barbequed ribs, sausages, steak, desserts, wine and beer while watching a variety of performances.  Additionally, exciting raffle prizes, and a big fireworks show provided guests with an unforgettable night.

The event provided a great opportunity to give Americans in Chengdu a taste of home and celebrate Independence Day outdoors.  The event also provided a great opportunity to promote good relationships among the business community during a casual and fun-filled night.

Net proceeds from this charity event will go towards assisting areas affected by the Ya’an earthquake relief.
