Night of Shanghai 2005

Dear Alumni & Friends,

As many expected, once again we had a great party of Night of Shanghai on Feb 20th. More than 200 alumni and friends registered and participated in the party.

Our alumni showed up very earlier this time. Before the entertainment programs formally kicked off, the auditorium was already full of party atmospheres. Our volunteers were busy around to decorate the night. Colored balloons were hanging around everywhere. Dinner tables were well dressed up awaiting our guests. The professional music DJs fueled the room with all your favorite holiday melodies. But the highlight of course belongs to the stage. The decoration would bring up your memory of the familiar sky line and city landscape of a Shanghai night. Don’t get too nostalgia if you haven’t been back to Shanghai for long. The party just brought you so close to the city.

The program started with traditional Chinese Lion Dance and Kongfu Show. It quickly attracted all the audience to the stage, where our professional tier MCs would lead us to two hours of continuous enjoyment, fun and applauses. Not enough yet, the happy hours continued with dancing, until we had to say bye-bye. Just to be sure, the Night Of Shanghai will come back again, and bring you better experience.

If you have missed the party, please wait for publish of the party photos and videos. That is a way to make it up a little. The best thing to do is to not miss any more. Join the next Night of Shanghai!

Having enjoyed so much, we wanted to take the opportunity to acknowledge to the volunteers from both alumni associations. A successful party like this can only happen with the great team work and dedication from both Fudan and JiaoDa volunteers.

Monica Xu is the first one that we should thank. We can not imagine how much effort she had to put in to organize such a wonderful performance. Monica and James looked great on stage.

Jason and Alan have been taking the leading role as the organizers. Jason’s action items are as detailed as a space program project. Alan had made great contribution in marketing the event and helped pull in more attendees in the last week. The party exceeded our expectation with more than 200 people showed up under unfavorable conditions.

Selena, Leo and Jason had put in long hours to work out a fun program together. Selena had been leveraging resources from her business. We are indebt to her for that.

Peng Cheng and Sean Yao have been the two most reliable persons to take care of the food and other logistics. How can our party be successful without them?

Maggie Cai, William Lu, Zhao Miangang, May Lee, Jean Ouyang, Elaine Sun, Tony Ling, etc. from JiaoDa, and Hu Xiaotong, Joanna, and Helena from Fu Dan have been extremely effective and supportive. Yehua’s kid’s corner is very well organized.

Once again, our indebtedness and salute to our NoS Preparation Team and all our volunteers. Thanks to all of you!

Wish you all a prosperous new year!
