Join us for our Annual Installation Gala to ring in the New Year of 2023 AREAA - Twin Cities. We are honored to present Korean cultural performances of KPOP Dance, Tae Kwon Do, Traditional Dance & Drumming, and work from award winning poet and author, Ed Bok Lee, in celebration of our 2023 President, Vincent 'Nak' Jung and his Korean American heritage. We will have traditional Korean Food from Hoban. There will be a Night Market of local AAPI/BIPOC Artisans. Of course, our new and continuous AREAA partners and sponsors will also be there to share information and resources.

We are very proud to be highlighting the amazing and important work of CAPI USA with all proceeds from our Silent Auction. They have been a great and longstanding resource for our Minnesota AAPI and immigrant and refugee communities and our community as a whole. Please contact our member outreach team if you would like to contribute to the Silent Auction. You can also donate directly to CAPI USA here.

The evening starts at 6pm, at The Machine Shop in historic NE Minneapolis, with cocktail hour and socializing, Night Market shopping and Silent Auction bidding. Dinner will be punctuated with cultural performances and poignant speakers.
