    Thank You to the Canadian Community After Fort McMurray Fundraiser

    MAY 23rd, 2016

    Canadian Fundraising Kickoff in Shanghai for the Displaced Residents of Fort McMurray a Huge Success! Donations will Continue to be Accepted in the Weeks to Come.

    SHANGHAI, CN – A fundraising event to support the displaced victims of the wildfires still ravaging the greater Fort McMurray area in Northern Alberta was held in Shanghai at Big Bamboo Sports Bar on Nanyang Lu, a Canadian-owned establishment, on May 13th, 2016.

    Red Gate International and True Legend Hospitality Group initiated the fundraising campaign and invited the Canadian Chamber of Commerce to support the event and help bring the Canadian community together to participate in the fundraising efforts. In particular, we would like to thank True Legend Hospitality Group, IMAX, BMO Financials, CN Rail, Red Gate International, B+H, Petro Canada and Feine Cashmere for their donations. We also would like to show our appreciation to Air Canada, Canada Beef, Dragonfly, Azure Properties, Shanghai Centre, Golden Gloves Boxing Gym, PR Furniture, Fields International Supermarket, Dragonfly Therapeutic Retreat, Naked Group, Sean Goff from CN Rail, Four Seasons Pudong, Fairmont Gold, Nancy Pon, BMO Financials, Canada Beef International Institute, The Office of the Canadian Consul General, True Legend Hospitality Group, Feine Cashmere, The Pearl Bar & Cabaret, and Pistolera Mexican Grill & Cantina for their generous contributions to the Silent Auction, Live Auction, and Raffle activities at the event.

    As the wildfire continues to wreak havoc on Fort McMurray, Canadians and friends of Canada in Shanghai have come together to show their love and support. Including the generous donations made by various Canadian corporations, this initiative has, so far, raised more than 300,000 RMB. This means the Canadian Red Cross will receive more than 180,000 Canadian dollars, after both the Federal and Provincial governments’ contributions, from this initiative.

    Support Fort McMurray. CLICK HERE to donate online through gofundme. Untitled design (19) FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 9th, 2016

    Red Gate International and True Legend Hospitality Group together with The Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai are hosting Fundraiser for Victims of Fort McMurray Wildfires.

    SHANGHAI, CN - This Friday, May 13th, Red Gate International and True Legend Hospitality Group will be working together with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai to host a Fundraiser at Big Bamboo 132 Nanyang Road, Jing’an District, Shanghai, to aid the displaced victims of the wildfires currently ravaging the greater Fort McMurray area in Northern Alberta, Canada.

    Approximately 80,000 people have been evacuated from their homes in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada, as the fire has grown to 161,000 hectares and is expected to continue growing to 200,000 hectares in size by the end of this week. (1) With very little notice for evacuation and no timetable for when residents can return to the city, the Canadian Red Cross has stepped in to provide relief assistance for the victims. This relief will come in the form of: immediate emergency assistance and long term support for people and communities as they rebuild and recover, assistance with personal recovery by providing individuals and families cash supplements for food, clothing, medical equipment, childcare, household goods, rent or mortgage payments, utility bills, transportation and occupational items to help people return to work, and to strengthen or reinstate local services such as food banks, youth and seniors’ programs, sport and recreational activities, community centres, and other gathering places. (2)

    100% of all proceeds and donations collected by The Canadian Chamber of Commerce, Red Gate International and True Legend and Big Bamboo, will be forwarded on to the Canadian Red Cross to assist displaced Fort McMurray residents. Pledges will be collected throughout the week leading up to the event, and will continue in the weeks following. Payments can be made through the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai, as well as cash donations on the night. It is important to note that ALL funds raised by the Red Cross will be matched by the Canadian Government.

    On the evening of the fundraiser, there will be Raffle prizes along with a silent auction, and a much larger auction at the end of the evening. Red Gate has arranged for a live call from a few of the victims back in Alberta, which will be on display during the evening. The band “Leaves Over Seas” will be playing several sets throughout the evening. Entry is 150 RMB and with that you recieve a ticket for a drink of your choice. There will also be a Canadian Whiskey bar selling shots of Canadian Whiskey, with all proceeds going to help the cause.

    Schedule for the evening is as follows:

    5:00pm Doors open 6:00pm Silent Auction opens

    7:00pm Canadian Bar opens

    8:30pm Opening Speeches & Video call from Ft. McMurray

    9:30pm Raffle Prizes

    10:30pm Main Auction & Announce winners of Silent Auction

    11:00pm Closing Speeches

    True Legend will be donating 100% of the proceeds collected and the sales from all drinks purchased on the evening. Cash and Credit Card donations will be accepted. The evening is welcome to all as we drive to raise $100,000! Please come and support Fort McMurray!
