Heart to Heart Shanghai held its first annual Art for Hearts art show in 2018. That show and each of the subsequent shows called for all types of artists (emerging/established/domestic/foreign) to donate their artwork for Heart to Heart to exhibit and sell. The 2021 Art for Hearts show will exhibit similar artists. 100% of the proceeds go towards providing heart surgery for Chinese children whose parents cannot afford the surgery. In the first three years the Art for Hearts art shows raised enough money for 33 Chinese children to have heart surgery.
The Art for Hearts art shows are gala events with drinks (wine, beer and soft) and finger food donated by companies who support H2H. There will also be live classical music. As last year, the 2021 show will be held in the spectacular 4th floor Shanghai Centre atrium which is donated for H2H’s use. There is no charge to get into the show and all are invited. Approximately 450 people attended the gala event in 2020. Advertising goes out throughout the city and special invitations are sent to H2H friends, sponsors, volunteers and dignitaries. We believe 500 people will attend the 2021 show on the evening of Friday, October 22.
During the 2021 Art for Hearts show, we hope to raise funds to help more children. In order to do this, we need your help. In 2020 a full surgery was sponsored through the sale of raffle tickets. We would love to equal or surpass that figure in 2021. But we need raffle prizes! We would love it if you would be able to help us with an appropriate prize. Usually, the raffle prizes are valued at RMB 500 – 10,000. Prizes are put together with each other so that each of the hopefully 30 prizes we raffle will be something everyone wants to win. Naturally, we realize this is a great expense so we would advertise you as one of our donors on the large backdrop at the event. Also, we’ll send you information about the children you help sponsor for heart surgery and invite you to visit them after their surgeries. We hope that’s an attractive proposition.
We really hope that you will take this opportunity to support Heart to Heart.
