Dragon Boat Race!


Upcoming Events

Dear FWCFFA members and friends,

As you may have heard, Fort Wayne city government will hold its first Dragon Boat Race in the St. Marys River on May 30, 2015. All proceeds go to Cancer Service of Northeast Indiana (Allen county).

Dragon boat race was originated in Southern China and has become quite popular in western countries in recent years. Because the Chinese heritage embedded in this sports, Fort Wane Chinese Families and Friends Association has decided to participate in this event including racing the other 20 boats! However, the registration fee of $2,100 for a boat is way over our usual budget, we have decided to fundraise. Besides other fundraising activities we will be engaging, we would like to be able to raise $500 cash/check among our member/families/friends pool. We would like to encourage our member, families and friends to donate at whatever levels you feel comfortable with. In combining other fundraising activities, we hope we can raise enough money to cover the most of the cost.

Some fundraising ideas provided by City can be seen here for your references if you are interested in trying them. If you write a check, please make it payable to FWCFFA, mark donation dragon boat, and send it to

Treasurer of FWCFFA

Alternatively, you may donate a Chinese art item to the Association (The item needs to have resale value). The Association is now 501 C(3) exempt, so your donation is tax deductable just like you donate to Salvation Army. The money received from the resale of your item will become the donation to Association. There will be a few sale events coming up soon (Ft. Wayne FAME on 3/21-22, Wabash FAME on 4/18 and other events).

Thank you so very much for your generous support to our association! To find more details about the Dragon Boat Races, please visit http://riverpaloozafw.org. This is a great family event, please come out and enjoy the different activities by City and cheer for our team!

Thanks again. You may email xywan@yahoo.com for additional questions.
