By now it seems everyone has heard of the cancellation of the Charity Music Concert organized by ShekouDaily and originally scheduled for Saturday February 27th, 2016 in Sea World, Shekou.


The concert was a fundraiser for a local charity organization called Promised Land Special Education, Ltd; which helps raise the special needs children of non-Shenzhen hukou holders.

After the cancellation of the concert, many of the ticket holders opted to not request a refund so that the funds could still go to Promised Land. Local businesses, including Backstube Les 5 Chefs, Hans Mix Sushi, Kabir's Indian Restaurant, McCawley's, The Terrace, The Stage Live Music, and X-TA-SEA Sports Bar & Restaurant also contributed last weekend by offering to accept tickets held by ticket holders as cash payment for purchases in their bars and restaurants.
