Welcome, and thank you for attending our 2019 Annual Gala Banquet. This is the capstone of a wonderful year of fellowship and outreach for the Michigan Chinese Women Association, and we appreciate your support of our efforts.
We thank our esteemed guests for joining us this evening. Teresa’s unique life has made for quite a journey. A renowned author, we are pleased that she will share with us the devotion to art and literature that has emanated from her experiences.
Ken Cook also has created his own path as an innovative engineer and popular magician — to the lifelong delight of his colleagues, clients, students, and friends. We are lucky to have him share his special talent.
Our gratitude extends to our sponsors, donors, and Chinese community leaders, including many previous MCWA presidents, who have overwhelmed us with their generosity and goodwill.
It has been a blessing to serve this year, and I am grateful for the harmony with which the board has pursued our mission. We were humbled to take the baton last September and to carry on the traditions of this impactful organization. With a goal of uniting Chinese women, we participated in community service, supported charities, and enjoyed social and cultural activities.
On behalf of all us, we hope you enjoy this inspiring and magical night!
2018-2020 President of MCWA
