Philanthropist Christine and Dr. Gabriel Chiu brought Chinatown to Beverly Hills for an exquisite Chinatown 90120 celebration for the 2019 Chinese New Year at Two Rodeo Drive.

“The Year of the Pig marks our first Chinese New Year as a family, thanks to the addition of Baby Gabriel III. The Pig symbolizes good fortune, and we wanted to share ours with family and friends by bringing Chinatown to Beverly Hills. We are incredibly grateful to Piaget and Bottega Venetta for partnering with us in celebrating the last day of Chinese New Year with Chinatown 90210,” said Christine Chiu.
