June 2018 | Haute Times Ahead

The temperature's rising! School's official out! It's time for summer fun! Our Tribe is busy preparing for many fabulous events in the coming months, and we hope you will make plans to join us!

Mark your calendars 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!

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS 
Since the release of our documentary nearly a decade ago, we have had a passion to give back to the adoptee community. For the past several years, ATG has proudly granted thousands of dollars in culture/heritage camp scholarships, so that adoptees can attend camp and connect with their birth culture and adoptees around the country who share in their same unique experience.  To submit and win a $100 scholarship toward camp fees, check out our contest details and enter by July 1st!

AID UPDATE: VIETNAM 







June 1st was Children’s Day in Vietnam. ATG celebrated this day with the children from our first orphanage, Ưu Đàm (Huế-Vietnam). We started the day with taking the children to the big super shopping center to buy food and necessary items, then ended the day with a party.  It has been 13 years since the formation of Ưu Đam Orphanage, and ATG has been there with the children during the last 11 years.  Help us give hope to these youth and donate today!
