This shiny, new webcast production, hosted by Angie Seth, Anchor of CTV News Channel, Toronto; and well-known Edmonton broadcaster, Stacey Brotzel, is an east-west elbow bump salute to the national scope and importance of CEMA’s long-standing charter members, and to all of Canada’s ethnic media.
The 32nd annual Dragon Ball, the signature fundraising gala of Yee Hong Community Wellness Foundation live-streamed on February 13, 2021, was a tremendous success. An incredible amount of over $700,000 was raised in support of senior care at four Yee Hong centres and the construction of three new long-term care homes.
Due to the safety concerns surrounding COVID-19, Yee Hong moved this year’s Dragon Ball online, hosting a virtual gala through multiple platforms. Over 13,000 views were recorded on Facebook and YouTube.
The funds raised help support the culturally and language appropriate care and services provided by Yee Hong Centre for Geriatric Care to seniors of various ethnic backgrounds in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).
