A Land of Natural Beauty, A City with Culture Appeal."

Ambassador Huang Ping and other honorable guests delivered remarks at a pre-game VIP reception and the CNTO representative made a vivid presentation, "China-Beyond Your Imagination;" while the representative of Chongqing China introduced the Chongqing culture and tourist attractions such as Dazu Rock Carvings, Wulong Karst Landscape and the Three Gorges Scenic Area. CNTO also promoted its Facebook account "Beautiful China North America," which was co-run by CNTO branches in New York, Los Angeles and Toronto.

The Mets presented the Spirit Award to Ambassador Huang Ping; Kuang Lin, director of CNTO; Margaret Lam, Event Honorary Chair of "An Evening of Chinese Culture;" Hou Ming, Head of North America and General Manager of New York Office of China Southern Airlines and Li Li, President of the Sino-American Culture & Arts Foundation in appreciation of their contribution to promote cultural exchanges between the United States and China.
