Art and Crafts Auction at Shenzhen Orphanage 2019/5/28
 
The Shenzhen Welfare Center supports specially challenged and orphaned children and with Mark's encouragement, the staff and kids have composed their own paintings and crafts for sale. This is the second year of operation. The art auction was a great success, and the kids paintings and crafts raised over 210,000 RMB in total. It was covered by prominent media outlets. At the opening I was invited to play some excerpts from Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations for piano. Lots of fun!
