2019 Gala & Fundraiser

Join Asian Services In Action, Inc. (ASIA, Inc.) for the agency’s most anticipated fundraising event of the year, the Annual Gala & Fundraiser on Friday, November 15, 2019, at the Ariel Pearl Center in Cleveland! For over two decades, ASIA, Inc. has provided programs and services vital to the community. We offer assistance and basic needs support services to over 58,000 individuals and families, our new Americans, annually throughout Northeast Ohio. Please join ASIA, Inc. as we celebrate 23 years of community service with this year’s theme — Communities Thriving Through Entrepreneurship — and support the strengthening of our community through immigrant and refugee entrepreneurs.

The evening will consist of dinner and drinks, a social hour, as well as live and silent auctions to raise funds for the many programs that provide training and technical support to the startup entrepreneurs in the immigrant and refugee communities. Come listen to these new entrepreneurs share their stories — from fleeing their homes due to war and persecution, starting a business, using their skills to help them find a new place to call home, and eventually earning a living.

Your generosity will enable ASIA, Inc. to expand its capacity to promote and support immigrant and refugee entrepreneurship that will, in turn, create jobs, revitalize and stabilize communities, and spark greater economic activity.

All proceeds from our 2019 Annual Gala and Fundraiser directly support our mission to empower and advocate for Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders (AAPIs); and to provide AAPIs and other communities access to quality, culturally, and linguistically appropriate information, health, and social services.

Sponsorship and advertisement opportunities are available! Don’t miss out on this opportunity to showcase your support and reach over 58,000 of the new American clients the agency serves annually. For information on how to secure a sponsorship or to submit a program ad, contact gala@asiaohio.org.

Are you unable to attend? You can still make a difference.
Your donation will help support the over 58,000 refugee and immigrant families and individuals Asian Services In Action, Inc. servers annually. Every donation made in 2019 will be matched dollar-for-dollar thanks to the generosity of the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation.
