China Center Co-Sponsors Asian Heritage Nights at NBA Timberwolves Games

On January 19, 2013 the China Center co-sponsored the Asian Heritage Night with the Minnesota Timberwolves and China Insight Newspaper. The Timberwolves played the Houston Rockets at Target Center (and won!). Jeremy Lin attracted hundreds of fans from the Chinese community. The China Center hosted a table to give out flyers about the American Cultural Center for Sports in Tianjin as well as almost 1,000 China Center hand clappers. Even the Timberwolves mascot, Crunch the Wolf, wanted to get a China Center hand clapper that night!

2013年1月19日,中国中心协助明尼苏达国家职业篮球(NBA)森林狼队和China Insight报纸共同主办了亚洲文化之夜。明尼苏达森林狼队主场对战休斯顿火箭队并大获全胜。休斯顿火箭队的亚裔球星林书豪吸引了数百名中国球迷到场。中国中心搭建了一个展位宣传明尼苏达大学驻中国天津的中美体育文化中心,并派发了近千个中国中心手拍板。当晚,即使是森林狼队的吉祥物也希望获得一个中国中心的手拍板!
