As a volunteering team, we need to raise funds to make it happens. As the the NYC Taste of Chinatown ceased 5 years ago, the most welcomed, long awaited event disappeared as the required funding for the ExploreChinatown campaign was gone. With the newly Chinatown BID developed, the funding goes straight to Clean Street improvements and no major recreation campaign can happen.
With disappointment from the community organizations and lack of commitment, there is no foresee recreation and marketing program that can bring large sum of foot traffic to promote the area. Slowly, NYC Chinatown is turning to a rusted gem.
Uniquely comprised of many small businesses, the neighborhood needs to bring back tourists to spend and enjoy in the area before it turns to a dead city, as well as the locals to help support and restore the unique culture.
For The Event Comers:
- sample tasting delicious food plates offered by 50+ restaurants
- shop at unique stores in discounted price
- enjoy cultural performance and hip entertainments
- get to know the uniqueness of NYC Chinatown and be excited about it.
The funds is to pay for the necessary permit fees to varies agencies (for street closure, sound permits, food permits, Vendor licenses, etc), equipment and tools, tents, tables & chairs rentals, wagon stage, security, sanitation & trash removal, website building, promotional materials and collateral, decorations, operating expenses and so on.
