Annual Gala 2023


Thank you for supporting the Chinatown Health Clinic Foundation 2023 Annual Gala Dinner on May 18, 2023 at Tribeca 360° in New York City. At the Gala, our primary fundraising event, we celebrated the impressive work of the Charles B. Wang Community Health Center. About 420 friends, including guests from the community, business, philanthropy and government, gathered to celebrate the more than $1 million raised to support community-based health services.

This year’s honoree was Dr. David Ho, renowned AIDS researcher, physician and virologist. As head of the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Center at Columbia University, Dr. Ho’s groundbreaking therapies transformed AIDS from a certain death sentence to a manageable disease, saving millions of lives. For this, he was named Time magazine’s Man of the Year in 1996, the first physician to be so honored. An immigrant himself and a long-time friend of the Foundation, Dr. Ho strongly believes in its mission.

The evening also featured special remarks from Dr. Ashwin Vasan, Commissioner of New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and a captivating performance by Joyous String Ensemble. Melissa Lee, host of CBNC’s “Fast Money” and “Options Action,” served as emcee.
