Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center (BCNC) employee Lai Chan was honored April 10 at TD Garden, a Boston Celtics game against the Brooklyn Nets. The Hero Among Us recognition was presented by the Celtics and the Massachusetts State Lottery.

A tireless advocate for immigrant and children’s causes, Chan has raised more than $7 million for community-based childcare programs in Boston. A role model to generations of Asian American families, Chan has mentored more than 7,000 children throughout her career.
