February 23, 2018

PHILADELPHIA, PA. (February 23, 2018) – Fashion District Philadelphia is proud to announcethat it will be a sponsor of the Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation’s 2018 Chinese New Year Banquet as the organization welcomes the Year of the Dog. This year’s event will take place at Ocean City Restaurant, located at 234 N. 9th St. in Philadelphia.

PCDC is a grassroots, non-profit, community-based organization whose
mission is to preserve, protect and promote Philadelphia’s Chinatown as a viable ethnic, residential and business community. As Fashion District
Philadelphia continues its construction to open the region’s first immersive, metropolitan destination shopping, dining and entertainment experience, it is thrilled to partner with its future neighbors at PCDC to support this year’s annual banquet.

“With the location of Fashion District Philadelphia directly adjacent to Philadelphia’s vibrant Chinatown neighborhood, we couldn’t be more excited to support the organization responsible for promoting this unique cultural treasure within the city,” said Erika Joy Erb, Director of Marketing for Fashion District Philadelphia. “As we near grand opening of Fashion District Philadelphia, we look forward to supporting PCDC and the Chinatown neighborhood in other ways through various outreach and partnership efforts.”

As part of Fashion District Philadelphia’s role as a member of the Chinatown neighborhood and a worldwide tourism hub, once opened, Fashion District Philadelphia will offer exclusive tourist programs and opportunities including bus tours, concierge incentives, translation services, currency exchange, and same-day delivery on items purchased.
