Hello, everyone! As some of you may know, the IMSS (Immigrant and Multicultural Services Society) held an Awards Ceremony Banquet and invited members of the community to attend. The Chinese Benevolent Association was invited and our Board Members: May Cheung, Sarah Goodrick, Eva Ho and Cynthia Hong attended the banquet.

We were quite surprised to discover that the Chinese Benevolent Association was awarded the IMSS Diversity Award for being an organization who has contributed to the promotion of multiculturalism and the fight against racism! Thank you, IMSS, especially Xiao Xue Liu for nominating us!

Of course, this award could not have been possible without the strong, dedicated and committed volunteers and members of the Chinese Benevolent Association that make up our organization! I would like to thank every member of the Chinese Benevolent Association for making this possible. Special thanks goes to members Eva Ho, Sarah Goodrick, Cynthia Hong, Teck Fu, Lily Chow plus many others (there are so many that I can’t list them all) for all their hard work! Thank you for your continued dedication to our organization! This is an award for all our members! Thank you!

Here are some pictures and a slideshow of the pictures:

“Hi, May
I am so happy because CBA deserved to get this Award.”

Please remember that although I accepted the award on behalf of the CBA, it is us, as members of the Chinese Benevolent Association that are the recipient of this award. Without your strong support of the Association, this would not have been possible. I thank you all for your hard work and dedication to the Association!
