The Wallis Annenberg Center For The Performing Arts Celebrates The Chinese Lunar New Year Saturday Night
Honorary Chair Wallis Annenberg joined with event Co-Chairs Linda May and John Bendheim welcomed 500 donors to the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills for a spectacular Lunar New Year Celebration on Saturday night. At the Jan. 31 gala celebration for the Year of the Sheep, which officially begins Feb. 19, local philanthropist Ming Hsieh (born year of the sheep) said sheep are known for their tenderness, intelligence and sensitivity. The benefit, which honored Eva Hsieh, founder and designer of Eve by Eve’s in Beverly Hills, featured concert performances in the Bram Goldsmith Theatre by acclaimed pianist Rueibin Chen and Madame Sun Ping from the Beijing Opera. Wolfgang Puck catered the food, which was beyond delicious, and lion dancers entertained attendees at the pre-concert reception. “The Lunar New Year has always been a big event in Beverly Hills and in Southern California and some of our patrons who are from China had suggested the idea,” said Jerry Magnin, chairman of the board. "It was really nice to have a lot of new visitors. One of the missions of The Wallis is not to just be for Beverly Hills; it's to be for all of Los Angeles. This is unique in the City and we want to bring people from all over Los Angeles here.” The evening was produced by J. Ben Burgeois Productions and the dinner committee included: Hannah An, Carol Cheng-Mayer, Aileen Adams and Geoffrey Cowan, Grace Jin and Li Li, Heln King, Niki and C.L. Max Nikias, Marc Selwyn, Sue Tsao and Anna Fang and Michael Yang.
