In the Chinese culture, a hong bao, a red envelope with money inside, is given away for special celebrations such as the New Year, birthdays, and weddings. It symbolizes good fortune, prosperity, love and appreciation. A generous contribution of $500 or more will enable you to become a member of the Red Envelope Circle. Members are honored at an annual VIP reception hosted by the Board President, and listed on a display in the lobby at BCNC.
