Jewels of Asia

It was a night that sparkled! The Asian American Chamber of Commerce held it’s annual business awards and this year the theme was “Jewels of Asia”. It was a wonderful way to honor Asian American business leaders who have made contributions to our community. A big group of local leaders attended including Fairfax County Sheriff Stacey Kincaid and Fairfax County Supervisor Sharon Bulova. I was honored to emcee an event that really makes me proud. Shout out to Grace Han Wolf and Jenet Ahn for putting together another successful show! Photos by Joey Darley.

“Stars Over Dulles” Shine Bright, Help Soldiers

What a glamorous and generous night! The Dulles Chamber of Commerce honored the best in local business and at the same time raised more than $17,000 on the spot for the USO. I was honored to emcee the sold-out event that included wonderful surf ‘n’ turf, music by The Karma Issue and inspiring stories of the good work being done to help our service men and women. Notable guests included Senator Mark Herring, Delegate Tom Rust and Delegate Ken Plum. Special thanks to Jenet Ahn for her amazing work as event chairwoman. She pulled off a party that went beyond a purpose. Photos by Rich Kessler

Holiday at Korean Ambassador’s Home

We celebrated the holiday with Ambassador Duk-Soo Han and Madame Han at their breathtaking residence in Northwest Washington. Amb. Han was instrumental in getting the free-trade treaty between South Korea and the US passed. At the party we also heard from Leonard Kim of the Korean American Scholarship Foundation. Of course there was tons of food… my favorite were kimchi pancakes and galbi! Many of us went in for seconds. We wrapped up the evening with nori-bang.. with is Karaoke in Korean. The Ambassador himself even took center stage.
