Celebrate The Year of the Ox with Yao Family Wines and Chef Martin Yan! MOCA is pleased to partner with Yao Family Wines and Chef Yan for an online Lunar New Year celebration and fundraiser. Nancy Yao Maasbach, MOCA President, will give a toast at the beginning.

You are invited to join Chef Yan, Anna Li of Yao Family Wines, and other special guests for an online cooking demonstration, wine tasting class, and wine pairing discussion. Chef Yan will be cooking up his Lunar New Year favorites and Anna Li will be sharing wine tasting tips while she samples some of our most popular wines, YAO MING Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, YAO MING Napa Valley Brut, and YAO MING Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.

We have created several special “Happiness Packs” that will allow you to sample these wines along with Chef Yan and Ms. Li. We will also feature a fun interactive quiz that will allow participants the opportunity to share their wine and cooking knowledge, and win some great prizes!

A portion of all sales will be donated to the Yao Ming Foundation and participating partners including MOCA, focused on furthering Asian-American priorities and environmental conservation. Use code “MOCA” to receive 10% off of your purchase. Space is limited, so please sign up soon!

MOCA has not skipped a beat since its temporary closure in March 2020. We’ve been converting our programs to online offerings and creating new digital content through multiple platforms, always free of charge—because history matters. We are facing tremendous financial losses due to COVID-19. We hope you’ll consider making a gift to become part of a continuing lifeline for MOCA. No amount is too little and we greatly appreciate your generosity. Your contribution helps sustain our beloved institution and supports the creation of new, online programming that will bring comfort and inspiration to more communities.
