ChiFan for Charity is a one-night event where you, well chi fan
, that is, eat, for a good cause. Basically, on the night of April 17, you reserve a table for yourself and friends at a participating restaurant and dine on a multi-course meal paired with drinks for 500 to 800rmb, depending on the restaurant you choose. The food is all donated by the restaurant, and 100% of the proceeds go to a charity. Each restaurant provides one table, and usually seats are going fast.
