Asian Business Association Gala – December 2014

I lovingly served ABAOC as Secretary of the Board for 2013 – 2014.  Now time to welcome the new 2014-2015 Board Members and recognize the people who have made a significant difference in many people’s lives this year.  What a beautiful, elegant and opulent celebration of life and business at the 19th Annual Awards and Gala by the Asian Business Association of Orange County, California.

Such powerful and influential people in attendance, most of them I am proud to call my friends….
