Event description

Description

Join us for a festive gala celebrating the power, influence and excellence of the Asian American community. Enjoy delicious Pan-Asian cuisine inspired by flavors of Thailand, Korea, India, Sri Lanka, China, Vietnam, the Phillipines and so much more at the gorgeous Center Club in Costa Mesa. Mix and mingle with young AAPI Hollywood talent, community philanthropists and special guests: Rep. Judy Chu, Rep. Gil Cisneros, CA State Controller Betty Yee, CA Assemblymember and Chair of the API Legislative Caucus David Chiu, CA Assemblymember Ash Kalra, CA Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi and the Honorable John Chiang.

Spend the evening enjoying signature cocktails such as a Singapore Sling or a Bangkok Mule while hanging out with friends. Immerse yourself in special performances by Japanese drummers Kishin Daiko, Filipino Dance Troupe Kababayan UCI, Vietnamese jazz vocalist Thuy Linh and Pakistani Muslim comedian Zara Khan.

Press your luck playing Texas Hold 'Em Poker with poker star Lena Evans and friends. We thank David Gitter, CMO of the World Poker Tour, for providing the evening entertainment. Or indulge in an intense game of Mahjong in a private room... all this to raise awareness and money for the 2020 Census.
