Year Of The Ox Virtual Celebration
APA hosted our annual Chinese New Year celebration for Chinatown client families on Feb 19. Many of the young kids were dressed up for the occasion. Festivities included singing, storytelling, arts & crafts as well as a Nian Creature costume contest. Materials for this parent-child costume creation project were provided in advance.
The top-rated contestants were awarded prizes, but no one was left without a gift. During our Monday Diaper Distribution, goodie bags with lucky red envelopes for the kids were given to the 25 families who joined our celebration.
Let's see one of our Nian Creature costume contestants in action HERE.
Special thanks to Kory Lam, HSBC’s Vice President and Cluster Branch Manager in San Francisco and the N.CA Asian & Pacific Islanders Committee for ordering fortune cookies from Chinatown’s Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory to contribute to the goodie bags. Thank you also goes to the donors who contributed to the “lai see” lucky money for the children.
