“Dream” gala recognizes and honors the dream for inclusion. On the 135th anniversary of the Chinese Exclusion Act, we dream of a future for inclusion, diversity and equality. We invite you to uplift underserved communities and be a voice for equality through education and contemporary art.
In pursuit of realizing our dream, we cordially request your presence at 2017 “Dream” gala as a table sponsor to celebrate a special evening with fine dining, entertainment and innovative art. It is also a great opportunity to network with artists, influencers, community builders, business leaders and elected officials.
CCC is a leader and an impactful institution in contemporary art. Over 168,000 members of the community are actively engaged annually of whom 5,000 are youth. CCC, under the aegis of the Chinese Culture Foundation, is a 501(c)(3) organization. Your donation is tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
