Join us for a cultural and doll-themed luncheon event as we celebrate the Chinese Year of the Dragon, at the Country Club of Salisbury in Salisbury, NC, USA.

This event is perfect for anyone passionate about dolls and doll collecting, as well as those who appreciate Chinese culture and heritage.

The luncheon will take place from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm and will feature a hearty lunch, as well as informative and engaging presentations about Chinese dolls and doll making.

The highlight of the program will be a presentation on the dolls from the Door of Hope Mission, a Christian Women’s Mission established in Shanghai in 1901 as a safe space for destitute women and girls that offered a haven from the horrors of human trafficking.

The dolls were created as part of the Mission’s education and training program, allowing its residents to refine their sewing abilities and improve on skills to sustain themselves as independent members of society.

These dolls offer a glimpse into what life was like for women in China during this time, and today, they are highly sought after as they depict turn-of-the-century Chinese dress customs.

A special exhibit highlighting Chinese dolls and Door of Hope Mission dolls will be on display at the museum (within walking distance of the luncheon) until December 2024.

Tickets are limited, so book early to secure your spot at this unforgettable event.

Event tickets cost $80 for museum members and $85.00 for non-members. Not a member yet? Click here to support our nonprofit museum with a membership!
