CHCP’s 30th Anniversary Dinner GALA
Our Legacy Lives On…Educating the Voices of Tomorrow

The Chinese Historical & Cultural Project (CHCP) is celebrating our 30th Anniversary with a Dinner GALA at the Fairmont San Jose on Saturday, September 23, 2017 at 5:30 pm. The Fairmont San Jose holds great significance to CHCP as the site of the first and third Chinatowns, and the site of the largest collection of Chinese artifacts from 1887.

Our 30th Anniversary theme is “Our Legacy Lives On…Educating the Voices of Tomorrow.” CHCP is embarking on a new project to fund grants for 4th, 5th and 6th grade students in Santa Clara County public schools to participate in “The Immigrant Experience” program at History Park San Jose, with an educational visit to the Chinese American Historical Museum. Today, more than ever, there is a need for students to see and hear about the immigrant journey – of the Chinese immigrants’ diligent work, perseverance, and resilience in helping San Jose and Santa Clara County thrive and prosper. We plan to offer grants to the Santa Clara County school districts of approximately $1,000 each of which will cover costs for 2 classrooms (avg. class size of 35) and a subsidy for their transportation. For more information, visit History San Jose’s A Case for Immigration: What’s Your Story website.

CHCP is pleased to be recognizing four GALA Honorees in the following categories:

  • Community Leadership:
