Diversity Visionary Awards at South Coast Plaza


On Saturday, May 11, 2013, in celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, diverse community organizations and partners come together to present their respective role models who will be recognized for their contributions and achievements to the community.  Cultural presentations will add to the festivities.

For the first time, the Korean American Chamber of Commerce of Orange County, Vietnamese American Chamber of Commerce of Orange County, the Friends of Thailand International Network, Hong Kong Association of Southern California, National Association of Asian American Professionals, the Filipino American Chamber of Commerce of Orange County and the Asian Business Association of Orange County have combined efforts to organize their first Diversity Visionary Awards, a highly anticipated event within the Asian American Community.

 The Diversity Visionary Awards event will celebrate business, culture, music and dance.  A selective group of 300+ business professionals, corporate executives and dignitaries will be in attendance, and South Coast Plaza, an international destination, is this year’s title sponsor and host for this event.  We want to extend the opportunity for you to reach out to the Asian American community by being supporters of community outreach and diversity.

Special entertainment will be performed by Alewa Island Inspirations, the Joo Myung Sook by the Korean Dance Institute, a presentation of Srivichai and Pan Din Thong by the UCI Thai Club, an Ao Dai Trong Dance by Lien Orchids and a Fashion Ao Dai Show by Christine Designs.
