Great new musical, literary and theatrical raffle prizes for Gung Haggis Fat Choy dinner

Our Gung Haggis Fat Choy Robbie Burns Chinese New Year dinner always has raffle prizes to further help raise funds for Asian Canadian Writers Workshop, Historic Joy Kogawa House and Gung Haggis Fat Choy dragon boat team.  We try to find prizes that reflect our themes of BC's Chinese-Canadian and Scottish-Canadian history and culture.  In particular we try to help promote Asian-Canadian arts and culture.

The dinner actually costs quite a bit to put on, plus additional production costs including sound technician and additional equipment plus publicity and posters.  We hope that our guests will further help us raise funds for our very worthy organizations, by purchasing lots of raffle tickets!

For our 2008 dinner on January 27th, some of the prizes so far include:
