Yue-Sai Kan Co-chairs China Institute 90th Anniversary Gala
China Institute celebrated its 90th anniversary in New York City with a glittering gala that included a surprise performace by a troupe of Peking Opera performers. Three people were honored for their contribution to increasing understanding and cooperation between the U.S and China: Bob Chapek, Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Chairman; Richard Gelfond, IMAX Corporation CEO; and fashion designer Guo Pei.
China Institute, founded by a group of educators in 1926, is the oldest bi-cultural, non-profit organization in America to focus exclusively on China. Its anniversary event attracted more than 350 guests, including culture, business, education, and government leaders from around the world and Institute friends and supporters.
With seats starting at $2,000, the event raised nearly $1 million to support the Institute’s program in education, culture, business, and art. To see the full article, here is a link:
