Reel Asian held our 2nd Annual Lunar New Year & Silent Auction Fundraiser at Crown Princess Fine Dining on Thursday, February 18th to kick-off our 20th anniversary celebrations and welcome the year of the monkey! It wouldn’t be a proper Lunar New Year celebration without a delicious ten-course feast and energetic lion dancers blessing everyone with prosperity and good health in the new year.
Thanks to everyone who came out to support our cause in fostering the next generation of talents to promote diversity and inclusion in arts and entertainment. We hope you had a chance to bid on the amazing prizes in the silent auction room. Your generous contributions helped to raise funds towards our year-round and festival youth programs.
