NEW YORKER (PIX11) — An eccentric billionaire from China is taking 1,000¬†down on their luck New Yorkers to lunch.

Chen Guangbiao pledged to treat one thousand people to a free lunch at the Boathouse in Central Park next Wednesday.

He’ll also give each guest $300.

The billionaire-slash-philanthropist says he wants people to know the Chinese do more than just spend their money on luxury goods.

The price the lunch guests will have to pay? They’ll have to listen to Guangbiao sing “We Are the World.”
