華美福利會 7/13 辦嘉年華會

Their Courage to be New Gala


Boston, MA – Food will definitely be the highlight of the Asian American Civic Association's 49th anniversary gala from 6-10 p.m. on Wednesday, July 13 at the Club Royale on 279 Tremont Street. Over 30 well-established and up-and-coming restaurants from the Boston area (mostly Asian) will be serving their best dishes in unlimited platefuls including a couple which have not yet opened in Boston! Those are Gaspara (Cuban sandwiches from the creator of Chicken & Rice Guys) and the upscale Hunanese cuisine restaurant, Sumiao's Hunan Kitchen. Most of these chefs are also immigrants and we've told their stories in the program book. 

Performers for the evening include dance groups such as Chun Jou Tsai (The Dream Project) and the Japanese group, Showa Boston. AACA's Youth Council will also perform Indian dance. Two AACA graduates will be awarded for college and career advancement. They both having inspiring stories to share about the struggles and successes they've experienced as new immigrants in Boston. Mayor Marty Walsh and Governor Charlie Baker will be attending to hand out the awards. There will be a VIP reception with them starting at 6:30. WCVB's lovely anchor Antoinette Antonio will be the MC. There will also be a live and silent auction. A signed Tom Brady jersey is one of the hot items on the list!  After enjoying high caliber live cultural performances, 500 guests will dance the night away to music played by a DJ in this hip nightclub setting. 

Established as a Chinese social club in 1967, the non-profit Asian American Civic Association now provides immigrants from over 80 countries and others with ESOL, social services, and job training. For more information, visit:
