The American Ball - The 8th Kingdom

In the mythical splendor of the 8th Kingdom, an epic battle between good and evil rages within the medieval castle walls. Join the knights of the noble houses for a fantastical evening of pageantry, dance and feasts of roast meats and dark ale in the Imperial Great Hall.

AmCham China's famous Silent and Live Auction returns with an incredible array of luxury, home, travel, fashion and dining bargains for one night only! Proceeds from the Ball will support local charitable causes.

Since 2003, through the American Balls and your generous support, AmCham China has donated over RMB 12 million towards improving the lives of thousands of families in China.
Charity recipients this year include Educating Girls of Rural China (EGRC), whose mission is to break the cycle of poverty by supporting high school and university education for young women. Additional charity recipients will be announced by April 30th, 2017.
