Due to the current COVID situation, East Meets West Parent Education Club has postponed its in-person celebration of the Year of the Tiger and replaced the event with a one-hour virtual show on Zoom Saturday, Feb. 5, from 6-7 p.m.
The event will feature entertainment and an online auction. The performances include awarding-winning young artists Rita Wu — who will play Chinese zither — and Ming-An Fasquelle, who will sing Western songs.
There will also be a holiday lion dance performance to celebrate the Lunar New Year and bring the community together.
The featured online auction will have many popular items including a new Celine leather handbag, birthday and ride-along certificates from the San Marino Police Department, a sailing trip out of Newport Beach and many special items and gift certificates donated by stores and businesses.
The auction will be accepting bids from Feb. 1–7.
To attend the Zoom party and bid on the auction item, visit and register at EMWPEC.org.
