OCA San Mateo’s 22nd Annual Fundraiser and Awards Gala is the major event of the local Chapter. This year’s theme is “Making A Difference Today For A Brighter Tomorrow.”
The Gala dinner is OCA San Mateo’s major fundraiser which raises money for its high school senior Scholarship and Speak & Lead with Pride (workshops designed to improve local high school students’ public speaking and leadership skills) Programs.
Achievement awards will be given to three outstanding members of the APA Community. This year the Organization is proud to honor Karen Clancy, a member of the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District Board of Trustees, Nancy Lim-Yee, Executive Director of San Francisco’s Chinatown Child Development Center, and State Controller John Chiang.
Frances Dinglasan and David Louie of KGO Channel 7 News will host the celebration. Fundraising events include a silent auction and raffle drawings. Among the entertainment will be singer Juliet Fernandez and the California Youth Chinese Symphony.
