2017 Gala Slide Show
Thank you for your participation and support for
the Korean Community Center’s 2017 Gala:
Empowering the Next Generation

Dear Friends,

Thanks to the incredible generosity of so many, our 17th Annual Gala, Empowering the Next Generation, held on Saturday, April 22 at Teaneck Marriott at Glenpointe, raised more than $350,000 in support of KCC’s commitment to serve Korean American Community in Northern NJ.

The KCC’s goal is to help empower Korean Americans of all ages through educational, cultural, and health and social programs. Our children and youth programs build positive and creative thinking, self-confidence, social skills, and prepare them for higher education and careers. Your support helps us continue in our mission and to assist those in our community.

We were honored to host more than 300 guests across the country from civic, business, social, media and medical communities!

We would also like to extend special thanks to our keynote speaker, Charlie Kim, and Gala Honorary Chair, Youngsuk ‘YS’ Chi, for their gracious support and powerful messages.

Once again, your generous support makes it possible for the Korean Community Center to continue our mission Thank you!
