Dear OCCA Friend and Family, 

We are pleased to invite you and your family to the 2016 Chinese New Year Celebration 

Gala. The gala is scheduled for February 06 (Snow date, February 13), 2016, from 2 pm to

gala, hosted by the Orange County Chinese Association, is a part of our continuous efforts to 

promote greater multicultural awareness on the basis of supporting cultural tolerance, 

creating a vibrant cultural community, and fostering an increased support among residents 

within the local community.

This culturally enriching day for our community will celebrate the most important time of the 

year in the Chinese culture - the Annual Chinese New Year Celebration. The Chinese New 

Year Celebration is comprised of a show and a dinner. The show is performed by the 

students of the Orange Country Chinese School and adults (volunteers and professionals) 

from our association. The dinner is provided by the members of our Orange County Chinese 

Association as well as local caterers. The event is open to the public. The show is free and 

the dinner is $10 for OCCA members and $12 for non-members.

We would be extremely grateful if you would attend this occasion and be a part of our 

celebration. Please RSVP by January 25, 2016 via email or phone.

Yours Faithfully,

Kangjian Wu, President
