    These fund-raisers are rarely affordable; or aimed at a general audience.

    Wow, what a great honor. Glad to read that Michelle speaks fluent Cantonese because when I first met her and Estella in the late 1990s, Michelle's Cantonese was so broken, lol. I would think her post skating career has really improved her Chinese, both Cantonese and Mandarin.

    Impressive group of honorees, and so nice to see Michelle recognized for her accomplishments off ice as well as her skating career. Michelle comments about her grandparents history and her parents goals are very powerful.
