Cui Yongyuan, a well-known CCTV host, treated 152 migrant workers who had rescued others during the “7.21” Beijing rainstorm to dinner on July 30.
Han Hong, a famous Chinese singer, performed live, and even sang “Beautiful Wonders” with a migrant worker at the banquet. Cui Yongyuan bowed deeply to these selfless, warm-hearted migrant workers.
“I hope to hear the sound of you all eating. In a bit, there’s going to be someone on stage talking, but don’t stop the chopsticks in your hands,” with this, Cui gave a deep bow.
The audience of 152 migrant workers are all construction workers working in Beijing. At the Jing-gang-ao Highway that was seriously affected during the “7.21” Beijing rainstorm, they rushed to the highway, and with life rings and hemp ropes, rescued over one hundred passengers.
14,400 yuan,18 tables of hot and steaming dishes, and when Cui Yongyuan swiped his credit card to pay the bill, all the migrant workers there stood up and applauded to thank him. “It was a very happy dinner,” said a migrant worker, and echoed by his fellow workers.
