BJ FOoDiEs, the group with the slogan “Indulge for a Cause“, held its most recent event on Sunday at Jing-A Taproom. Attendees paid 100 yuan each to enjoy five shared starters (from sweet potato fries to popcorn chicken), a choice of mains (either a grilled cheese or a sausage sandwich) and a beverage, including one of Jing-A’s nine home brews.
At BJ FOoDiEs events, envelopes are handed out after dinner and attendees are free to include donations to the cause being supported that month. This time around, those donations are going to maovember — which will use them to fund cataract surgeries via Orbis — and total 4,156 yuan.
Maovember teams restaurants, bars, vendors and customers for good causes. Our 2019 partner is Library Project, which has furnished more than 2000 libraries in rural schools. Learn more about Maovember here. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
