After the ribbon-cutting, Mr. Wang gave a speech first.

Nearly the end of the festival, a simple donation ceremony was held. All money gained from charity sale in this event was donated to the "Drip Sunshine" and "Telethon Kid Institute" Charitable Education Fund. Mr. Pan, as the founder of "Dripping Sunshine" charity, accepted the donations and delivered a brief speech.

The celebration ended with a wonderful lion dance. Through this event, the traditional Chinese culture was inherited and spread further in Western Australia.
