An Evening with Dragons

Tuesday, May 30
Old Bowery Station

Tickets are available for one of two seatings: 6:00PM and 8:30PM. Each ticket includes the following: all-you-can-eat food; free-flowing cocktails and beer; and opportunity to win one of several prizes.

To celebrate the commencement of the annual Dragon Boat Festival, New York’s Chinese culinary community will join forces to host a one-night event: An Evening with Dragons.

With one-of-a-kind bites, the night will be a memorable one. Plates will showcase a collaboration between Brooklyn and Manhattan restaurants, specifically Nom Wah Nolita, Win Son, Ho Foods, and The Tang.

And libations? Spend the night sipping on signature beverage, crafted by Bacardi Legacy 2016 champion GN Chan. Each cocktail will be curated with Kavalan Whisky (WWA 2015 and 2016 Best Single Malt). If you’re not one for whisky, Tsingtao beer will also be served.

To round off the night, a raffle will be held. Lucky winners of the grand prize will be able to take home one of twelve bottles of Kavalan Solist—ex-Bourbon or sherry cask. Runner-ups will have the chance to claim gift cards to Nom Wah, Win Son, and The Tang, along with other possible merchandise.

The Harmonie Club, 4 East 60th Street, New York

A cocktail reception to honor Rita Zimmer and the 15th Anniversary of Housing+Solutions, as well as Founding Board Members Bonnie Bach, Phyllis Chillingworth, Annabel Davis-Goff, and Alexis Perrotta, whose enduring commitment has been invaluable to its success.

“For me, doing something from the heart is the best way to be a force for change.” 

Rita Zimmer founded Housing+Solutions in 2002 to provide safe, supportive housing for women, including women with children, with a promise to guide and support them in overcoming homelessness, trauma, addictions, poverty, and the effects of incarceration in order to build lives of stability and to define and realize goals for themselves and their families. Rita also founded Win (Women In Need) in 1983 and was its President until 2000. Over the years, Rita and the organizations she has led have received numerous awards, including the Robin Hood Foundation Heroes Award and the Brooke Astor Award for Public Service.

“We are always looking for new opportunities to bring about real changes that will improve the lives of women and women with children whose needs have been overlooked for far too long.”
