The 2012 KCCAA Chinese New Year Gala occurred on Sunday, January 22, 2012. The Jasmine Chinese Dance Group performed the “opening” dance at the event, in which total 38 Jasmine youth members from ages 5-15 performed. This energetic dance features many different types of Chinese dance, ranging from handkerchiefs to red ribbon to drums. The costumes were also very colorful, and added to the overall effect. The performance was a great success.
The 2nd annual KCCAA Community Service Award was also presented that night to seven individuals. Among those seven individuals, two were Jasmine members Cindy Wang and Elaine Zhu who received 2nd place and 3rd place. The KCCAA Community Service Award recognizes exemplary young people in the Kansas City Area who have participated in large amounts of community service. It was once again sponsored by Black & Veatch Corp. and Waddell & Reed.
