As Miss Taiwanese World part of my duties is to connect communities and further support education initiatives. So when I was asked to help sell raffle tickets benefiting future professional development workshops for the Chinese American Construction Professional (CACP) organization I gladly accepted the role; the event was held on a Friday evening at 888 Seafood in Rosemead. When I arrived I was introduced to several former Miss Chinatowns and together we enthusiastically promoted some amazing prizes which included a big screen tv, wine, and more to maximize raffles sales.
During this annual fundraiser guests were served a 10 course meal featuring a traditional cold plate appetizer, lobster, a whole fish, etc. The attendees savored the family style meal and their eyes were entertained by local and international performances. Some government officials also made appearances including: Councilmen Ed Chau and Congresswoman Judy Chu. The evening ended raffle winner announcements and dancing.
It was a festive and delicious way to celebrate the new year! We raised a lot of money for future programs and had a great time doing it. I hope I’ll get more opportunities to work with these beautiful ladies and support a great cause!
What’s an important cause that you’ll support this year?
