Photo of the day: Marriott International raises over US$920,000 for underprivileged Chinese youth

A whirlwind of three fund-raising gala dinners hosted by Marriott International in Shanghai, Beijing and Shenzhen has brought the global hotel company more than US$920,000 towards easing the plight of underprivileged schoolchildren in rural China.

The events were hosted in partnership with Yao Foundation – established in 2008 by former star basketball player Yao Ming – in late October and early November.

All net proceeds generated from ticket sales and the galas’ charity auctions will fund Marriott-Yao Foundation Hope Primary Schools in less developed regions in China.
