Asian American Heritage Dinner at Hai Hong Restaurant in Ithaca on April 30, 2005, 7:00 P.M

The Ithaca Asian American Association along with Ithaca College’s Center for the Study of Culture, Race and Ethnicity, and Cornell’s Asian American Studies Program are pleased to invite the public to join us at our first Asian American Heritage Dinner at Hai Hong Restaurant on April 30, 2005, 7:00 P.M. A traditional Chinese banquet of 10 course meals will be served.

This event will recognize students and community members for exemplary leadership and commitment to community/public services. In addition, this dinner will celebrate the contributions, locally and nationally, of Americans of Asian descent. While May is nationally recognized as Asian American Heritage Month, Mayor Carolyn Peterson has prepared a proclamation to be read during dinner recognizing May as the Asian American Heritage Month in the City of Ithaca. Common Council is also expected to adopt the proclamation on May 4, 7:00 P.M. There’s a lot of excitement in the air and we hope you can join us for this historical event.

Dinner Tickets are $25 per person for a 10 course meal. Due to limiting seating no tickets will be sold at the door. Tickets can be purchased by contacting Amy Kuo Somchanhmavong at or 607-257-3207.
