HCS Gala Celebrates 21st Year with Special Guests

Updated: Jan 3, 2019

HCS once again hosted its annual "Lunar New Year Award and Gala Celebration" focused on celebrating its 21st year of serving the growing Chinese American community in Brooklyn.


The gala was held at Jing Fong Banquet Restaurant and served as a major fundraiser for the organization in meeting its mission of improving the quality of life for immigrants, seniors and the otherwise disadvantage so they can be more self-sufficient in society. The gala honors distinguished members of the community, while helping to raise money for a good cause.


The audience of over 500 guests was treated to two animated lions who danced from table to table greeting guests and ushering in the “Year of the Dog”. HCS music choir opened the show with the National Anthem followed by a very joyful Lunar New Year celebration song to welcome in the New Year!!! Guests were entertained with cultural performances, tai chi, magic, music, cultural and modern dances.


Special guest, NYC Police Commissioner James P. O’Neill and Chief Thomas Chan helped HCS to pay special tribute to honoree, NYPD Retired Detective, Agnes Chan, the first Asian American woman police officer in the NYPD for her pioneering spirit, dedication and community service just in time for Women’s History Month.

Additionally, HCS honored Po Wing Hong for their business leadership in providing quality products to the community since 1980. Lastly, HCS honored Dusanka Miscevic and the late Professor Peter Kwong for their academic achievements, particularly their work in highlighting the enormity of the Chinese contributions to this country and the history of Chinese in America from the 1800s to present day.
