KCCP 9th Gala Keynote Speaker, Ms. Kyung B. Yoon, Executive Director of Korean American Community Foundation (KACF)

This year’s Chuseok Gala theme is “Breaking Ground for the Future,” as we are about to launch the ground breaking in near future to construct a multipurpose community center which a dream will be in reality. We continue to raise funds through our capital campaign for the construction fund and it is anticipated that the construction of the community center will be completed by 2017.

Considering a small community through grassroots movement, we have been proud of achieving our initial goal of purchasing 6.4 Acres of land on Meadow Road in West Windsor Township in 2011. Construction planning was started in 2013 and has been in progress with volunteerism and passion.

At the annual Gala, we will share our history, our current activities and our vision for the future. This year, the evening will begin with a cocktail hour at 6:00 p.m. and an authentic Korean dinner will be served at 7:00 p.m., along with great music performance by Mezzo Soprano, Mi Soon Ghim, who was praised as “first rate” singer for her New York City Opera performance by The New York Times.

We are excited to announce that, will be our Keynote Speaker. She is a longtime community leader and advocate for promoting philanthropy in the Asian American community and will inspire KCCP’s mission and vision.
