Dr. Steven Shu finally met his match...Mother Nature. To those of you that know Dr. Shu, you know that it is not easy to slow him down but he finally encountered something that he could not overcome...20 inches of snowfall that prompted him to cancel the Holiday party he had planned for Dec.11, rescheduled it to Dec. 18 and finally was able to hold it on Jan. 8, 2011!

smDrShuPartyAs noted, Dr. Shu was determined to hold his Holiday Party because he wanted to celebrate the continued success of his medical clinics and acknowledge the printing of the 100th issue of Minnesota Douowei Times (MDT) for which he is publisher. Also, to share this success with the community, Dr. Shu announced the formation of his charitable foundation, One Stop Medical Foundation.

In his remarks to the gathering Dr. Shu expressed his sincere thanks to all of the people that have made it possible for him to achieve the success he has accomplished and through his foundation plans to give back to the community. Along with his wife, Lorna, Dr. Shu announced the first recipients of grants from One Stop Medical Foundation: Zhejiang University Alumni Association (US$1,000), Twin Cities Chinese Dance Center (US$2,000), Minnesota Yucai Chinese School (US$3,000) and the Chinese Social Service Center (US$4,000). These organizations were selected from a list of applications that were requested in a notice published in MDT that invited appropriate non-profits to submit their request. Dr. Shu commented that he hopes he will be able to double the amount of grants this year and that organizations should watch MDT for future grant announcements along with the appropriate guidelines.

As the guests enjoyed their meal prepared by the capable and attentive staff of Hotel Sofitel, they were entertained by comedian Jack Tsai with material some may feel was R rated but may have been appropriate for the medical/anatomical theme of the evening.

The formal portion of the evening concluded with Dr. Shu introducing Zhen Sun as the new president of MDT whom he expressed confidence that she will be taking the Chinese-language newspaper to the next level.
