At our joint gala, we will be saluting those who have made Chinatown and our city a better place to live, work, and visit. The Chinatown District Management Association (CDMA) and Chinatown Partnership Local Development Corporation (CPLDC) are delighted to honor and recognize the following individuals and organizations for their outstanding contributions and unwavering commitment to our community:
- Apex for Youth
Recruits working professionals to volunteer and become positive role models who inspire youth to expand their horizons to underserved Asian and immigrant youth from low-income families in New York City.
- Families with Children from China
Connects families formed through adoption from China, promotes cultural understanding, and fundraises through Orphanage Assistance Program to help provide foster care and education.
- Ms. Norma Chu
Multi-talented community leader and teacher. As an educator in New York City for 30 years, she volunteers tirelessly for the larger community; helped design and manage social programs to improve the lives of immigrants while a board member of the Chinese-American Planning Council; and continues to donate her time to mentor others.
- Mr. Tony Chuy

A renowned, avid photographer and philanthropist. He has auctioned off his award-winning photos and donated all proceeds to benefit the community.
During these challenging economic times, it is even now more crucial to have your support in order to continue to provide essential services and programs to Chinatown. Funding for our general operating budget is limited, and your generous donation will help to sustain our efforts.
We are proud of our work and accomplishments on behalf of our community. Much of the successes of the CDMA and CPLDC would not be possible without our dedicated staff, volunteers, community partners, individual and corporate supporters. Your continued support through the purchase of a gala ticket, table or journal ad is greatly appreciated.
Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you on June 28th!
