Perfect Confluence of Happenstance

I always wanted to be close captioned but never thought it would be like this. I was so honored to be interviewed by a correspondent with the Xinhua News Agency — the official press agency of the People’s Republic of China. The primary focus of the interview was about the VIP event we are hosting for the Chinese Lantern Festival with an exhibition by some of our country’s foremost table tennis players to mark the era of Ping-Pong Diplomacy and the visit of the Chinese President with President Trump at Mar-a-Lago. Our event will be held on Friday, April 7th.

In brief, the Festival which is running at Sunset Cove Amphitheater until April 9th is great any day but to see some of the best ping-pongers in the U.S., schedule a drop in for April 7th as well! Including two-time Gold Medal Olympian for para-olympics and present olympic players.

Note: Xinhua is the biggest and most influential media organization in China. Xinhua is a ministry-level institution subordinate to the Chinese central government. I never thought I would be on air with this outlet.
