Gung Hay Fat Choy “Wishing you Prosperity and Health” was the word during the Arthritis Foundation Central Coast 2019 Chinese New Year Dinner at China Pavilion Restaurant to benefit kids with arthritis and the Arthritis Foundation. “The Chinese New Year Dinner is the official kick-off for the Arthritis Foundation' Central Coast annual Taste of the Town to be held this year on September 6-8, said event co-chair Amye Leong, MBA.

Joe Evans, Marketing Relations Coordinator for Arthritis Foundation Central Coast, welcomed guests as they arrived at the door and helped lead the Chinese “Gung Hay Fat Choy” toast featuring Hooch (Chinese moonshine) served in delicate keepsake red glasses. Red, an auspicious and popular color in Chinese culture symbolizing luck, happiness and joy was the recommended color of the evening and the majority of attendees arrived at the China Pavilion for the ten course feast wearing their best red couture.
