Maovember is all about fun new events and that was certainly the case on November 24 as restaurant O’Steak hosted a photograph auction and wine tasting aka MaovembArt.
The auction featured ten photos–eight from Beijing, two from Shanghai–taken by Francois Nadeau. All profits from the auction, which saw plenty of bidding, went to Maovember.
Guests also enjoyed flights of three glasses of wine—as Nadeau is a French-Canadian in China, we picked a French, a Canadian and a Chinese label—at rmb120, which also went to Maovember.
This night of art and wine, not mention tasty French food and plenty of conversation, ended up raising rmb13,240 or 132,400 mao.
