The Chinese Chamber is a non-profit organization and we hold this event each year to celebrate the community and raise funds for our operations throughout the rest of the year. Sponsorship is a great way to spread good will to a community that is growing quite quickly, especially with the massive influx of Chinese students attending local universities. We look to serve this new community and that of the export realm in the region too. We do this by collaborating with other movements to encourage immigration and diversity awareness. In addition to individual tickets, guests are also welcome to purchase a table of 10 with recognition for $2000. We thank you for your support.
