The 15th Annual Fundraising Gala

Executive Director's Note

January 2019


Dear friends and community leaders,


Spring Greetings! I hope all had a fun and relaxing holidays. As the old Chinese saying, annual planning begins in the spring. The team of the Chinese Culture Connection (CCC) is busy planning the upcoming Lunar New Year celebration for the Year of the Pig on January 26, 2019 although the real New Year date is on February 5. In addition, we are also pleased to announce our 14th Annual Fundraising and Awards Gala, which will be held on Saturday, April 6, 2019 at 6:00 PM at the Hei La Moon Chinese Restaurant, 88 Beach Street, in Boston’s Chinatown. 


Each year we recognize 3 special individuals and/or groups who have committed and contributed their talents and time for the betterment of our society in the area of the arts, culture and humanities. The recipients for the 2019 awards are as follow,


Life-Long Community Services Award will be presenting to Eugene Welch, executive Director of South Cove Community Health Center for his unflagging commitment in establishing a new Chinese health center branch to support the Asian communtiy in Malden.


The Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion Award goes to Professor Paul Watanabe of Umass Boston for his dedication and commitment in educating and promoting the knowledge of American politics and awareness of civic engagement, to the Asian community and beyond, so that community groups, of all origins, can be engaged in local government,  politics and become spokespersons or leaders of their community. 


The Outstanding Arts and Culture Award goes to Ose Schwab, for her tireless commitment in promoting the  awareness of the richness and the diverse arts and cultures within the Malden community.


We share our common vision with these honorees, as the mission of Chinese Culture Connection is to promote intercultural harmony, strengthen diverse communities, and build bridges between American and ethnic Chinese through interactive educational programs and the arts. Through sharing and promoting the understanding and appreciation of Chinese arts and culture, we continue to bring people together. The celebration of cultural diversity is what makes this world go around.


I sincerely encourage you to join us and get involved, share your ideas and suggestions to help CCC to bring more educational programs and cultural events to our community for our mutual enrichment and benefits.
