The Asian American Federation will host its 24th anniversary at our Spirit of Asian America Gala on Thursday, May 2nd at The Pierre. The event gives us the opportunity to celebrate our Asian American communities, corporate diversity, and giving back to those less fortunate.

Each year, we pay tribute to outstanding individuals and institutions that have made a direct, substantive impact on our community through their leadership and philanthropic endeavors.
Funds raised will support the Federation and our member agencies continue to provide critical services to our Asian American communities. We are deeply heartened by the support of all our partners, sponsors and friends over the past 24 years, and look forward to seeing everyone again!
