The First Charity Bazaar for Poor and Lonely Elderly was held by the Tianjin Christian Council & Three-Self Patriotic Movement's Special Community Service department in charge of outreach and exchange
On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China on September 21, 2019 and coinciding with the annual Religious Charity Week, the Community Service department of the Tianjin CC&TSPM in charge of outreach and exchange, held the event at its training center and invited local well known calligraphers and painters who have supported Christian ministry for a long time. The calligraphers and painters tried their best to produce fine works of art dedicated to the calligraphy and painting lovers.
A warm atmosphere surrounded the event. Onlookers rushed to buy their favourite works. Some artists had already prepared their works beforehand. Some created them on-site according to the wishes of the buyers. As a sign of their love for the event, many buyers paid a higher-than-listed price for their pieces.
