DONORS June 2012
We are deeply appreciative for the ongoing generosity of Ken and Marion So. For a second year, they sponsored the Friends Annual Scholarship Award dinner at the Empress Pavilion Restaurant. They subsidized the dinner and invited the scholarship winners, their guests, and the dedicated Chinatown Library staff to attend the dinner as guests. We thank Ken and Marion for their generous support of our scholarship dinner.

DONOR APPRECIATION EVENT
The Friends of the Chinatown Library will host a very special Donor Appreciation Event on Sunday 20 March 2011 from 1:00 - 3:00 PM at the Chinatown Branch Library. In addition to honoring all the donors, we will honor Juliana Cheng, the first branch manager for the Chinatown Branch Library in 1977. At that time the library was housed in Castelar Elementary School. Juliana recently retired after working 33 years in the Los Angeles Public Library System. We invite all donors, family and friends to come to our celebration. For more information, click on Events.
All DONORS ARE APPRECIATED
Greetings donors, large and small! With your consistent help for over thirty years, we are now able to enjoy the beauty, space, and facilities of a wonderful new library. We especially thank the major donors whose names grace the Charter Donors wall, installed in 2003, for their help with funds which enabled us to increase the size of the library's meeting room and children's area.
Because our present library has not only new, but increased needs for financial assistance, we are issuing an appeal for your continued support. We welcome all your contributions to the endowments of the Chinese Heritage Collection, Children's Books & Programs, and the Homework Center, or the library's Area of Greatest Need.
Following new guidelines approved by the Los Angeles Public Library Commission, we had to alter requirements for names to be permanently inscribed on the new section of our Major Donors wall located next to the Charter Donors wall at the entrance to the library. Both the original Charter wall as well as the new Major Donors wall were beautifully designed by graphic artist Diane Jeng Wong. Major donors of $5,000 and over will be recognized on both walls. As each panel of the Major Donors wall is completed with twelve names, another panel will be activated until all twelve panels are filled, celebrating a total of 144 major donors. Other donors will be acknowledged in our newsletter and on this website. This new policy now abides by the rules and regulations applicable to all 70 branches of the Los Angeles Public Library system.
Congratulations to the twelve donors who inaugurated the first panel of the Major Donors wall. The twelve donors are : Gerald Jann Trust, Hoover & Ruby L. Louie, Ming Gim Fong, Drs. Tim and Annie Siu, Dr. Pedro & Pek Chan, Stanton & Grace Wong, David & Pearl Louie Family Foundation, Cathay Bank Foundation, Judge Delbert Wong, Wing Baw Fong and Mae Ying Fong and Intex Corporation.
Congratulations to our second panel of donors who are: Fat Lung Liu & Ng Kam Ore, Mabel Wong Hogle, Robert & Gloria Yup Woo, Rosaline Wan Yee Ho, Robert S. L. Yee, Jerry & Helena Chan, Cathay Bank Foundation, and Stanton & Grace Wong.
The Friends of the Chinatown Library and the Chinatown Community would like to express their sincere thanks to ALL our Generous Donors and Members.
