Bringing people together

The Vancouver Chinatown Foundation hosts several events a year to generate ongoing awareness and support for the Foundation's projects.

We continue to be overwhelmed and humbled by the outpouring of support. From all of us at the Foundation, our sincere thanks to each and every one of you – your impact is immeasurable.

Past Events


The Spring Banquet, previously known as the Reunion Banquet, is a community event held annually to remember the stories of working, playing and living in Chinatown. Over 650 guests joined us for an exciting evening of lively entertainment, great food, and nostalgic charm. 

Our deepest gratitude to our presenting sponsor Vancity, our emcees Fred Lee and Susan Chow, and our Honorary Co-Chairs Maggie Ip and Bill Yee.

In the fall of 2018, the Vancouver Chinatown Foundation hosted its annual Autumn Gala, a community-building event for 58 West Hastings that was successfully attended by over 800 supporters, sponsors and community members – together, raising an impressive $1.1 million towards 230 units of social housing and a much-needed 50,000 square foot integrated health facility operated by Vancouver Coastal Health.

Thank you to our incredible Autumn Gala 2018 sponsors. The night would not have been a success without you!

This event would not have been possible without RBC (presenting sponsor), the Vancouver Sun (media sponsor), Gloria Macarenko (emcee), and our gala co-chairs, Carole Taylor and Sam Feldman.
