The Chinatown Health Clinic Foundation’s (CHCF) annual Gala Dinner will be held on Thursday, May 16, 2024, at Tribeca 360° (10 Desbrosses St, New York, NY 10013), with a reception at 6:30 p.m. and dinner at 7:30 p.m. The dress code is smart casual.

The Gala is our primary fundraiser to support the operation and programming of Charles B. Wang Community Health Center (CBWCHC).

This year’s honoree is Marie Lam, one of CBWCHC’s founders, a longtime CBWCHC board member, and current CHCF vice president. Few of those who built the Health Center have had more of an impact than Marie, who gave generously and encouraged many others to support. Born in Hong Kong, Marie came to New York in 1968 and worked as a social worker at the Chinatown Planning Council. She has been an active volunteer leader for the Health Center for decades, starting from the time when she helped organize the first Chinatown Health Fair in 1971. She received the 2000 Distinguished Community Service Award from the United Hospital Fund and the 2023 Dorothy Kartashevich Award from the Community Health Care Association of New York State. Marie’s unwavering commitment to enhancing access to quality health care for underserved Asian Americans stands as a remarkable example that motivates generations to follow in her footsteps.
