The next Shanghaiist Happy Hour at Cotton’s on Xinhua Lu falls on the one-year anniversary of the devastating Sichuan earthquake, so we have decided to team with Hands On Chengdu, an organization committed to supporting the long term redevelopment of the areas affected by the earthquake for this Tuesday’s gathering. Entry to the Happy Hour is free, but we’ll be holding a lucky draw with some great donated prizes — all proceeds will go to Hands On Chengdu. Hands On Chengdu will have an informational booth at the happy hour and will be accepting donations and signing up volunteers on site.
So please support this great cause by enjoying a few drinks with us in Cotton’s great outdoor garden area set to the soundtrack of the best songs from the first half of 2009.
We have some great lucky draw prizes so far (see below) but we are still looking for more donations. Want to donate a prize? Email [email protected]. We’ll be listing and linking to all the donors on the site.
