ENLIGHTEN - ACTION FOR EPILEPSY ( Enlighten-Action for Epilepsy is the only epilepsy-focused, non-medical local charity that aims to support those affected by epilepsy as well as raising epilepsy awareness in Hong Kong. Although there are almost 70,000 people with epilepsy in Hong Kong, there is a huge stigma in this part of the world surrounding this neurological disorder, where till June 2010 the Chinese name for epilepsy had the character “dean” which is synonymous with ‘being crazy.’ Enlighten runs a range of complimentary, bi-lingual programmes and services to improve the quality of lives of those affected by epilepsy.

Tonight, thanks to your generosity, we will be able to support the following Enlighten programmes: • Education & Training: Programmes that will be aimed towards improving the knowledge & understanding of epilepsy amongst people of all ages. • Community Support & Welfare: Providing consultation, one-on-one counseling, group support and networking activities to help people with epilepsy lead a normal life. •Awareness: Dispelling myths and misconceptions about epilepsy to reduce the discrimination and stigma that surrounds it.

“Most people with the condition are just like you and me trying to lead normal lives, however here in HK many face prejudice on a daily basis. Your support will help us touch the lives of many children with epilepsy in HK by providing opportunities that we all take for granted. “Chi Fan for Charity is a great concept and we are delighted to be this year’s Hong Kong beneficiary. I am thrilled to see so many Hong Kong restaurants supporting this event and hope the community continues to get behind this innovative approach to support charities.” -Ms. Claudia Schlesinger, CEO and co-founder of Enlighten HK To find out how to get more involved in supporting Enlighten’s work please e-mail:


Welcome and thank you 22 . NOVEMBER . 2014


From a desire to do some good while doing what I love best (eating !), Chi Fan for Charity was born. It is incredible to see how the event has grown from very humble beginnings in 2009 with a few trailblazing restaurants in Beijing to now 100+ amazing venues in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong. To date, we have raised over 3.2 million RMB (around HK$4 million!) for 17 diverse charities across China, which wouldn’t have been possible without the generous support of the restaurants, table hosts, sponsors, volunteers and people like you who have decided to dine out for a cause.


Our Hong Kong charity recipient this year – Enlighten - Action for Epilepsy – is doing superb work bringing awareness

for this neurological disease to the greater Hong Kong population. Because of your support this evening, many people will live a better life in a more accepting society. So, grab your fork or chopsticks and prepare to enjoy a unique culinary experience. Many hours of preparation in – and out – of the kitchen have gone into making this night a special one for you and everyone sitting around your table. Good Eats. Good Times. Good Causes. Best,

Michael Crain Founder, Chi Fan for Charity

Dear HK Diners! We, as well as the dedicated volunteer team, are delighted and proud to be able to bring you a second year of Chi Fan for Charity, Hong Kong to raise much needed funds for our official 2014 beneficiary charity, Enlighten - Action for Epilepsy.

We would like to thank all of the volunteers, sponsors, and restaurants who have made tonight possible and for supporting this event. We hope that you
