OCA Chinese New Year Gala 2015

Wai Yee Hong was a proud sponsor of the annual Overseas Chinese Association Chinese New Year charity gala, held on 23rd February 2015 at Water Sky Restaurant. All monies raised from the banquet and raffle go towards providing services for the local Chinese community.

Overseas Chinese Association Chinese New Year charity gala 2015

The Overseas Chinese Association provides a focal point for Chinese people in Bristol and the South West and arranges the Chinese school, Elderly People’s Club and food safety training for the Chinese community.

Guests were treated to a variety of Chinese dance performances, with a Lion Dance, and Unicorn Dance, as is traditional for the Chinese New Year, performed by the Bristol Pak Mei Kung Fu group. The fun Chinese scarf and handkerchief dances provided colourful, festive entertainment. Later, a visit from the God of Prosperity brought wealth and good fortune to everyone!

Lord Mayor of Bristol, Cllr Alastair Watson, also got in on the act with his version of Korean pop-hit Gangnam Style.
