In 2013, OCEF New York / New Jersey Chapter successfully hosted its first Benefit Concert in Xiaohong Qi’s gorgeous penthouse. We greeted nearly 200 guests with various backgrounds and professions, welcomed the attendance of representatives from the Chinese Consulate in New York, National Committee on US and China Relations, as well as the Mayor's Office. Many of our guests are world-renowned elites and professionals in the fields of art, literature, science, business and academia, visiting from NY, NJ, CT, as well as other countries. The concert evening was especially meaningful with the company of all our enthusiastic education supporters, who are serious and passionate about the cause of this foundation. Atotal of almost $30,000 was received through direct donations and net proceeds from the admissions and live/silent auctions, allowing OCEF to make the direct educational contribution to China’s underprivileged areas.

Your passion for this mission and generous donations directly support educational equityfor the overseas children in need. In 2013, OCEF NY/NJ Chapter has designated event proceeds to various OCEF programs in China. Our most current achievement would be the successful establishment of a children’s radio station in LanKao PuTaoJia Elementary School in HeNan Province. The Love My Happy Radio Station in Putaojia Elementary school was made possible through collaborating with HeNan Public Radio station and other educational contributors. This event sets a milestone of OCEF’s influence in instituting a more lively educational experience for children in schools.
