Bringing People Together

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.

Seniors' Monday at Chinatown Vintage 

Chinatown Vintage hosts Seniors' Monday twice a year during fall and winter. Seniors can enjoy refreshments while picking up warm clothing, shoes, accessories.

Due to COVID-19, Seniors' Monday was cancelled in Fall 2020 and Winter 2020-2021.

Holiday Celebrations at the May Wah Hotel 

Every Christmas and Lunar New Year, the May Wah Programming Committee organizes a celebration with food, gifts, and entertainment for the May Wah Residents. For more photos on these events, please check our Instagram and Facebook pages.

Due to COVID-19, Christmas 2020 and Lunar New Year 2021 events are cancelled. The residents are still receiving gift packages but are unable to gather.

Past Galas and Banquets

 

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.
