For another Shanghai first, BEAN is again partnering with Shanghaiist to bring you Sumo on the Suzhou, a fundraiser benefiting local charity CWEF (Concordia Welfare and Education Foundation, www.cwef.org.hk).
Strap on a suit and compete in the World Cup-style Sumo competition, or just cheer for your friends as they knock each other over. DJ B.O. of Sock Hop fame spins the whole night. The end of the evening will see the coronation of the male and female Sumo Champion! Win fantastic prizes!
"What's this awesome event for?" you may be wondering. Well, that's the best part. We're providing health kits for children in Yunnan. With your 25 RMB entry fee, you donate one kit that includes toothbrushes, toothpaste, and soap. You can enter the competition by donating six health kits (150 RMB). A special prize will go to the wrestler that raises the most funds, and a portion of the proceeds from the evening will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross Earthquake Fund.
Doors open at 7:00 pm. The fighting kicks off full-force at 8:00 pm. If you would like to enter the competition, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your 150 RMB donation will be collected the night of the event. We're looking for eight studly dudes and eight awesome chicks to fight to the finish. Spaces will go quickly, so sign up now!
Come to laugh at your friends. Come for the drinks. Come because it's a good cause. Come because, hey, this is going to be hilarious.
Drinks generously donated by Absolut and Tiger. 25rmb gets you a drink voucher, available at the door. Check out our commercial!
