ShMa Family Event MeetUp- Photos & ReCap

Thanks to all 250 people who braved the rain and made our Family Meet-Up on Saturday a wonderful success. Guests of all ages enjoyed delicious platters from Swiss Butchery, balloons and stuffed pandas from YCIS, face painting by PureSmile, and arts and crafts with Awesome Kids Club. Jiahui’s elephant got a lot of cuddles, and their stickers were a hit! Shanghai United Family distributed amazing discount vouchers for the whole family. Our sponsors are the best!

As always, this was pulled together by our grassroots team of volunteers. Thank you so much to everyone who pitched in from the initial planning stages to directing families on the day.

Massive thanks to photographer Lily Chen for the beautiful photos (WeChat ID: lilychenphotographerChina). She is also available for family portraits and event photography

We had fantastic prizes donated by wonderful community partners. All families received a jar of organic pasta sauce from Alce Nero and a water testing kit from Greenwave.
