Join us on Saturday, April 19, 2014 at the Chuang Archive and Learning Center for a cocktail event! All proceeds benefit the film Under One Roof.
Ricky Qi is a filmmaker, photographer, UCSD alumni, and a National Geographic Explorer. He traveled to Yunnan, China 雲南 where he began filming a documentary about what it means to be ethnic in modern China. The film Under One Roof takes a look at one family of the Moso people, the last of China’s matriarchal society, at the shores of Lake Lugu, and how they cope with modernization and tourism.
In recognition of Asian Pacific Islander heritage month, the museum is offering 50% off all adult and children’s education programs scheduled for the month of May. So now is the time to schedule a museum tour for your community group or invite museum educators to your office or your child’s classroom!

The event will be from midnight – 11:59p.m. on Tuesday, May 6, 2014. Your gift in support of the San Diego Chinese Historical Museum has the chance to be magnified by an incentive pool funded by The San Diego Foundation.
giveBIG is an initiative to increase philanthropic giving in San Diego County through online giving. The San Diego Foundation’s incentive pool increases the value of every dollar donated. The San Diego Foundation, US Bank and The Waitt Foundation have each contributed toward a $150,000 incentive pool. Each participating nonprofit’s portion of the incentive pool will depend upon how much they raised in proportion to the total amount raised during the event.
For more details about donating through the giveBIG campaign and more information about the incentive pool, please visit The San Diego Foundation’s website at http://www.sdfoundation.org/Grants/giveBIG/InformationforDonors.aspx
The BIG Exchange gives members of participating organizations reciprocal admission at 20 organizations throughout San Diego County!
