2020 Chinese Chamber Lunar New Year Gala
Thursday, Feb. 6, from 5:30 to 8 pm
99 Restaurant in Sharonville
This momentous event is our opportunity to celebrate the most important holiday in Asian culture together. We want to bring the business community of Cincinnati (and beyond) together to mix, mingle and enjoy a fine evening of Chinese cultural celebration. Our program includes a lion dance to start the proceedings, followed by plenty of time for networking and enjoying Asian-inspired cuisine by 99 Restaurant’s highly trained chefs. We garner improved relations between China and Cincinnati and we want to invite you to help us do it.
We are fortunate to have Dr. Robert Riegle joining us this year to speak about how the US-China relationship may play a role in the global economy and security.
