Chinese Reconciliation Park fundraiser March 6 in Tacoma

The Chinese Reconciliation Park Foundation will hold a fundraising event this week in Tacoma.

The Chinese Reconciliation Park opened in 2011 and aims to commemorate the expulsion of more than 200 Chinese people from their Tacoma homes and businesses on Nov. 3, 1885. The park includes a garden, winding foot paths, bridge, Ting pavilion gifted by the City of Fuzhou, sea wall, public art, interpretive displays, and recreation areas.

Individuals who attend the Chinese Reconciliation Project Foundation Dinner and Auction this week may enjoy food and wine, learn more about future plans for the Chinese Reconciliation Park, and bid on prizes during a silent auction.

The event will be held on Fri., March 6, between 5:30 p.m. and 9 p.m., at Bates Technical College, located at 1101 S. Yakima Ave., in Tacoma. Tickets are $60 each. More information is available online here or by sending an e-mail to info@tacomachinesepark.org.
