The Lion Dance Fundraiser is an annual celebration held during the traditional Lunar New Year, providing a unique opportunity for a skilled lion dance group to raise funds for our seniors in collaboration with Self-Help for the Elderly.
The talented performers engage in traditional lion dances, offering blessings of prosperity and peace to shops and businesses throughout the Lunar New Year period. This cultural spectacle is believed to bring good luck to establishments for the entire year, and as a gesture of appreciation, shop and business owners often present red envelopes containing donations to the lion dancers.
The lion, embodying strength, power, and protection, symbolizes the influence that safeguards citizens from evil forces. It represents qualities such as strength, courage, balance, and wisdom. Performing lion dances during celebratory events, including the Lunar New Year, Grand Openings, and other special occasions, is deeply rooted in Chinese tradition. Beyond ushering in new fortune, it is also believed to ward off bad luck.
We are honored to uphold this rich tradition and collaborate with esteemed lion dance groups like Kung Fu Studios and Lion Dance Me. This partnership allows us to celebrate alongside local communities, shops, and businesses.
The event promises an exciting and awe-inspiring performance that attracts a diverse audience. All proceeds from the Lion Dance Fundraiser directly support senior programs and services at Self-Help for the Elderly.
For those interested in learning more or participating in this fun-filled celebration, don't hesitate to contact the Fund Development team at Self-Help for the Elderly. Join us in supporting our seniors while enjoying a culturally enriching experience!
