Chi Fan For Charity takes the standard concept of a large gala dinner and throws it out the window! Seven years ago, founder Michael Crain had an idea and convinced a few restaurants in Beijing to participate in this innovative concept, using his network and friends to spread the word. From this, Chi Fan for Charity was born. CFFC came to Shanghai 6 years ago were Austen Morris Associates took on the mantle of the organising sponsor for 5 consecutive years and have enjoyed growing this in to the ‘largest culinary event for Charity in China.
