Kids Charity Program
AmCham Walkathon event

On October 28, 2012, AmCham sponsored the 3rd KIDZ Charity Walkathon.  The event was held from 2:00 to 5:00 at Taichung Metropolitan Park. The money raised supports our KIDZ charities. We had 160 walkers participating. A walk involves a large number of participants, all raising money through pledges that they solicit from their friends and families. For AmCham, this represents a great way to bring many people together for a fun event and also benefit our charities. Special thanks for support from the large number of walkers coming from Corning, World Gym, Kuang Tien Hospital, and The American School in Taichung. Many other organizations and individuals were also represented. Special thanks go to World Gym for again sponsoring our t-shirts.  Every participant who walks receives a t-shirt as you can see in the pictures.  Wear your shirt proudly around Taichung to show your participation. Additional thanks to Finga’s for catering our meal following the Walkathon.  Many people stayed in the park to enjoy the picnic atmosphere and the music.  Donations from the Walkathon are still coming in, but we expect to raise about 200,000NT for our Charities from this event.







Launched in 2009, this annual charity gala is a fundraising event that includes five-star dining,live music and a silent auction. It is a fun-filled evening that attracts over a hundred guests, including AmCham members and other guests from various industries and organizations around Taiwan. Funds raised at this event support high school tuitions and a daily milk-and-juice program for children at the Taichung Christian Herald Orphanage. At the 2011charity gala, AmCham Taichung raised over NT$800,000. Through this event, it is hoped that AmCham Taichung and the community at large can continue working together to make a profound difference in the lives of these disadvantaged children.
2009年推出,這個一年一度的慈善晚會是一個籌款活動,其中包括五星級餐廳,現場音樂和無聲拍賣。是一個充滿樂趣的晚會,吸引了近一百位嘉賓,包括美國商會會員及其他來自台灣各地不同行業和組織。本次活動所籌集的資金以台中光音育幼()院為主。項目為高中的學費和日常的牛奶果汁。在2011年慈善 晚會,台中美國商會籌得超過新台幣 80萬元。我們希望透過這次活動能增進台中美國商會及其他社群合作並且能夠繼續共同努力,來改變這些弱勢兒童的生命。
