The event is organized by the Victoria Chinese Community Association – a non-profit organization dedicated to promote Chinese community participation, to foster cultural exchange and awareness, and to promote strength in diversity and heritage values.

The gala is Sunday, Feb. 4 at 7 p.m. in the Farquhar Auditorium.
