Mystery Wine Party returned this year and raised over 90,000 mao through bottle and raffle ticket sales at CHEERS Sanyuanqiao on November 13.
Mystery Wine featured over 50 wines, from a dozen countries, wrapped to cover the labels. Guests paid rmb125 to choose a bottle, unwrap it and discover the “mystery.” They could only buy a second bottle when the first was done, which encouraged people to share with friends, trade pours with strangers and, in turn, discover even more wines.
This year’s party also featured a bean bag toss game–successful throws earned tickets in a draw for thousands of renminbi worth of prizes.
The party raised rmb7250 in bottle sales, rmb1225 in raffle ticket sales and rmb751 in donations, for a grand total of rmb9226 or 92,260 mao for charity.
And in addition to hosting, CHEERS also donated wines as did the following sponsors:
- The Wine Republic
- La Cava de Laoma
- Iroquois Marketing
