With its upcoming annual benefit, Family Centers is bringing the sights (golden-eyed dragons) and sounds (the chime of a gong) of the Far East to Greenwich. The nonprofit’s biggest yearly fundraising event, Chinatown: Night of the Dragon, is set for Saturday, May 31.
Event organizers are currently seeking sponsors as well as underwriters for items including a ride-able dragon wagon ($5,000), a welcoming gong ($500) and a henna tattoo artist ($2,000).
