Event Details


Business or cocktail attire suggested.  

On behalf of the Asian American Legal Advocacy Center, we invite you to save the evening of Friday, September 2oth for our 3rd annual Community Champions Banquet. The banquet will be held at Canton House Restaurant in Doraville.

Our banquet brings more than 300 friends and supporters together to recognize the exceptional contributions select individuals have made toward furthering the civil, social and economic rights of Asian Americans in Georgia.  The banquet is also AALAC’s annual, signature fundraiser.

We are also excited to announce that one of our prime donors is offering a 1:1 match for every dollar raised this year!   It’s a great time to invest in our vision of creating a social justice movement for immigrants in the South.  Please make a corporate, nonprofit or individual contribution today, and contact with questions or for more information.

Remember to save the date for our Community Champions Banquet and Celebration! We look forward to seeing you. Thank you!
