A gala was held to honour and award three young leaders who have made significant contributions to the local community. The gala also acted as a fundraising event organized by OtherHalf - Chinese Stem Cell Initiative and New Century Lions Club to support Canadian Blood Services.
One of the highlights of the evening was the piano debut by Artistic Director of the Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra, Conductor Kenneth Hsieh, who performed on the Steinway Grand Piano. Hsieh was one of the first recipients of the Outstanding Young Leaders Award, founded a year ago.
He made his debut alongside Erhu Artist and one of this year's recipients, Nicole Li. The two brought an unforgettable evening to all who were in attendance.
