Boathouse2.jpgWealthy Chinese philanthropist Chen Guangbiao recently made good on his promise (published as an ad in the Times) to treat 250 homeless New Yorkers to lunch at the Central Park Boathouse. While there he had them serenade him, then performed magic tricks and a rendition of "We Are the World." He also promised to give each $300, and plans to hold three more similar lunches at different locations. [NYDN]
