July 2018 | Mid Summer Nights Dreamin'

We can hardly believe the middle of the summer is already upon us and that school will be back in session soon. Only a few more weeks to take advantage of lazy nights and fun in the sun. Hope you are all having a wonderful time with family and friends!

In just a little over two months, please join us for our 10th (and final) Fashion for a Passion charity event, a night to celebrate Asian American designers, artists and performers for a great cause.  From showcasing talented musical performers to exhibiting inspiring art to rocking a fabulous runway show, we'll also have an exciting live auction and must-have raffle prizes. Plus, we are honoring an amazing trio of trailblazers with our first ever "Groundbreaker Awards." Our Tribe has a very special show planned for this milestone year, and official line-up and details will be released soon...so stay tuned!

To become a sponsor or donate a raffle prize to FFAP and gain valuable exposure, please fill out our Sponsorship Packet and return by July 31st. Tickets go on sale in August.

KENDRA SCOTT GIVES BACK
Thank you so much to all our lovely friends who shopped and called in orders to support our Kendra Scott Gives Back Party! With your help, we raised nearly $600 to benefit our supported orphanages/underprivileged children, scholarship fund, media projects and community outreach program. Much love also to the fab team at Kendra Scott for your gracious hospitality and generous partnership!
SHARE YOUR STORY
More than ever, it's our time to tell stories that matter. We are still in search of survivor stories for our documentary-in-production, Light of Day Documentary, which will give voice to another set of controversial and untold stories of domestic violence against Asian women and children. If you would like to share your story or donate to help us complete this important project, please contact us.

POSTCARDS FROM SEAPI CAMP
Our ATG Tribe flew to Estes Park, CO to present at Southeast Asian/Pacific Islander Heritage Camp as a part of Heritage Camps for Adoptive Families.
