Thank You, Volunteers!

Thank you to the many volunteers that helped with the 11th Annual Asian Heritage Street Celebration! The sea of blue shirts at AHSC was not only a beautiful sight to see, but a reminder of all the help and support it takes to run a festival like this. We hope volunteers enjoyed participating in the largest gathering of Asian Americans in the nation, while also making new friends!

The AHSC team recently organized a Volunteer Appreciation Night to show some love to our great volunteers. All volunteers had an opportunity to win an iPad mini, as well as other prizes and giveaways at the event. Congratulations to Adriel Quilatan, the winner of the iPad mini!
