We rang in the Year of the Monkey in style at the Westin Bayshore Hotel with more than 750 guests. We surpassed our fundraising goal to reach $845,324 for much-needed equipment for the Emergency Department at Mount Saint Joseph Hospital.

 

It was an evening of colour, excitement and high spirits. Highlights included amazing food creations by acclaimed Chinese Master Chefs, winners of Vancouver's Chinese Restaurant Awards, and performances by the Royal Pacific Realty Lion Sports Club, MusicLife ensemble, Vancouver Chinese Mama Society, pianist Trevor Hoffman, and rythym and blues artist Jerrica Santos. Media personalities William Ho and Lisa Wu guided us through the event as MCs for the evening, and celebrity auctioneer Fred Lee, along with John MacDonald and Joe Zhou of ADESA Richmond Public Auctions led competitive bidding on luxury items during a Live Auction. 

 

The Steinway Spirio, the new high definition player system piano, helped to enhance the evening with amazing tone and responsiveness to each performing pianist finest touch.
