MCVP Volunteers at Richmond Cares
The Love journey of the Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant finalists continued after the visit to S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Simon K.Y. Lee Seniors Care Home as they volunteered at the Christmas fund-raising event organized by Richmond Cares Foundation on a chilly winter morning.

Miss Chinese Vancouver Tours Richmond hospital
Richmond Hospital Foundation has been selected as the beneficiary of the Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant Gala 2016 with the donations going towards a new replacement patient care tower project. Recently, Richmond Hospital Foundation has invited the 10 finalists for a tour to learn more about the Hospital. President and CEO of Richmond Hospital Foundation Natalie D. Meixner greeted the finalists with a warm welcome and expressed sincere gratitude for their dedication and hard work to put together an extraordinary performance at the MCVP Final on December 8.
During the tour, the increasingly popular minimally invasive surgery (MIS) was introduced to the contestants. Before entering the operating room, they were equipped with sterile gowns and gloves. Aside from watching a thorough demonstration on how to use the equipments, the girls also had a chance to operate themselves. Their concentration was put to a test as they directed their focus on the screen while controlling the equipments with their hands.
As MIS is employing the 3D technology to enhance the surgeon’s peripheral depth during a surgery, the finalists had the opportunity to wear 3D glasses to experience and see clearly the three-dimensional image of body tissues. Not only has this memorable experience widened their horizon, it has also provided them with a deeper understanding of the importance of professional training that the medical staff undergo. Shortly after, they were guided to the Otolaryngology Division as Dr. Lillian Wong demonstrated an endoscopic examination of the middle ear structures. #4 Maria Rincon volunteered for an ear examination and joked that getting a glimpse of her eardrum was an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that could not be missed out!
The inspiring tour has definitely increased the finalists’ knowledge on medical technologies while motivating them to work extra hard at the Final for a good cause.
