he Hong Kong Greater China Business Association of Washington / Hong Kong Association of Washington Foundation created the Lunar New Year Gala in 2008 to showcase the organization’s effort to make a difference for people in our community.

Each year, the event raised over $300,000, with more than 600 attendees. The Lunar New Year Gala has raised well over $3.0 million for these deserving local charities and the Hong Kong Greater China Business Association of Washington/ Hong Kong Association of Washington Foundation is proud to continue our service to the community. Proceeds from the Lunar New Year Gala benefit our selected charity. Through the volunteer effort of the Hong Kong Greater China Business Association of Washington / Hong Kong Association of Washington Foundation members and designated charity organizations, the event has grown to be one of the most successful galas in Seattle’s Asian community.
