39th Anniversary Gala - A Tribute to Rose Pak

Chinatown CDC Board Member Theo Ellington, Executive Director Rev. Norman Fong, Teresa Wang (sister of Rose Pak), and Deputy Director Malcolm Yeung.

Honorable Willie L. Brown, Jr., Senator Dianne Feinstein and Mayor Edwin M. Lee paid tribute to Rose Pak at our Anniversary Gala.


Thank you so much for attending Chinatown CDC’s 39th Gala and Tribute to Rose Pak on October 7th. It was the biggest and best GALA we ever had! More than 800 guests attended the Gala and Tribute to Rose. It was a very memorable event that was attended by Senator Dianne Feinstein, Honorable Willie L. Brown, Mayor Edwin Lee, and other speakers who shared personal stories about Rose and her love for the people who live and work in Chinatown. One of Rose’s “love” was for the Pings in Chinatown. So, it was great to see so many friends pledging their support for the new Ping Yuen Center we plan to build.

On top of that, I’m so happy to report that Chinatown CDC officially took ownership and management of Ping Yuen and North Ping Yuen on October 13 and 14th. It’s really a dream come true because we will help improve and preserve 434 units of affordable housing for families and seniors in the heart of Chinatown. As a result of diminishing federal funds and declining investments in Public Housing, Mayor Lee selected Chinatown CDC and other nonprofit housing developers to participate in the HUD’s Rental Assistant Demonstration program, bringing in new resources to rehabilitate public housing such as the Pings. You could say “Chinatown CDC is turning public housing into community housing. We’ll do our best to rebuild community at the Pings.

You inspire us all with your steadfast support and commitment in our mission to enhance the quality of life in Chinatown and San Francisco. Thanks again for your generosity.

Happy Thanks-for-giving,

Rev. Norman Fong
Executive Director
