Yani Moved To Tears At Thank You Party, Announces Charity Donation

from my blog: Yani Tseng Moved To Tears At Thank You Party In Taiwan, Announces Charity Donation Fairways And Forehands



World #1 Yani Tseng continued her triumphant return home to Taiwan following her 5th Major victory at the 2011 Ricoh Women’s British Open. At a thank you party in her honor at the Miramar Golf & Country Club, Yani was moved to tears watching a tribute video with special messages from young golfers, friends, her sister and her father. The young golfers look to Yani as an role model, hoping that they also can one day make their country proud. Yani also announced a 850,000 yuan donation through the Taishin Bank Foundation (Taishin Financial Holding is one of her sponsors) to charity this year.

Nice.....didn't understand a D_ _ _ (the thing beavers build) word, but it was a good watch. Always nice to see golfers and other athletes give back.

How much is 850,000 yuan. It seems a yuan is a new system of currency.

Yuan can refer to the Chinese unit of currency, the Renminbi (the people's money), whose unit is a yuan. However, in this case, they mean the New Taiwan Dollar (new as of 1949), the Xintaibi (literally new Taiwan money) whose unit is also a yuan.

For today, 850,000 yuan (NTD) is about 29,366 USD.

So she's donating around 30 grand USD.

So now that the NTD is over 50 yrs old, when does it become Middle Age Dollar (MAD)?
