Annual Benefit 2014

Storyteller

The spirits were high at our 2014 Annual Benefit.  Each year we feature interesting Korean Americans who share their stories live, without script.  It is as much about the art of storytelling as it is about the content of their stories. This year, Dr. Agnes Rhee Ahn and Lt. Dan Choi hit the ball out of the park. Their storytelling captivated us and their stories challenged and inspired us to act to be the agents of change in our world. As you can see from these photos, it was a fun and inspiring evening.
