제2회 프린스턴 한인커뮤니티센터 건축기금 마련을 위한 자선 콘서트

프린스턴 한인공동체(KCCP: 이사장 써니 조)는 작년에 이어 올해 두 번째로 커뮤니티 센터 건축기금 마련을 위한 자선 콘서트를 개최한다. 오는 6월 16일(금), 오후 7시에 Yvonne Theater(Rider University)에서 열리게 되는 이 콘서트에서는 한국의 풍성하고 아름다운 문화유산을 잘 반영할 장고춤, 즉흥무, 가곡 등과 피아노 독주, 현악4중주 등의 서양 고전 음악 연주, 그리고 브로드웨이의 유명한 뮤지컬곡들이 선보일 예정이다.

잊혀져 가는 우리의 전통문화를 널리 알리고 보존, 계승하고자 2007년에 창립된 프린스턴 한인공동체는 올해 창립 10주년을 맞이했으며 Senior Club, Young Professional Club, Women’s Club, Young Professional Network, K-Club(청소년 프로그램) 등의 다양한 프로그램과 자선콘서트, 추석잔치, 각종 세미나(교육, 건강), 설 잔치, 차세대 전문인과의만남, 입양아 가족과의 만남 등 다채로운 행사로 이 지역 한인 커뮤니티 발전에 기여함은 물론 미국 사회에 한국을 알리는데 앞장서고 있다.

2018년 착공 예정인 커뮤니티 센터는 이미 총 건축기금의 3분의 2정도가 마련된 상태이며 프린스턴과 중부 뉴저지 지역 한인들의 구심적 역할을 하게 될 커뮤니티 센터 의 건축 기금모금에 박차를 가하고 있다.

Chun-Chun-Yee Fundraising Campaign has been launched.

The first group of Koreans arrived in the United States almost 130 years ago.  Since then, the Korean Americans in the greater Princeton area, while struggling to settle down in the new country, became accepted as model citizens through our hard work and contributions we have made in various fields. Along the way, we have strived to assimilate into the American mainstream but have also taken pride in maintaining our cultural heritage.

A plan was set forth by a dozen founding members of the Korean Community Center of Princeton (KCCP) to establish a solid base for furthering the Korean cultural heritage as well as continually supporting our outreach efforts. The best way to implement the plan was to build a community center as an immediate goal and hence we have successfully raised $2 million toward our goal. We were able to purchase the land for the construction site, draw up the blueprints.  Currently we are waiting for the approval of the site plan.   Estimated opening date for the center is 2018.

Now we have a bigger task to construct the center building with the space and amenities necessary to provide adequate services that we have envisioned to deliver for the Korean-American community in the vicinity. Because the total cost of the project is estimated at $3 million, it requires another $1 million. We will certainly get there at the finish line but, like the tortoise in Aesop’s fable, we are moving “slowly” (translated in Korean “Chun-Chun-Yee”).

But guess what? Chun-Chun-Yee has a hidden meaning for us. “Chun” means 1000 and “Yee” has a meaning of two or double. Therefore, Chun-Chun-Yee will denote the equation of “1000 Squared,” which brings the mathematical calculation of “1,000,000.”  Thus, it fits perfectly as our campaign slogan, through which we will reach the target number when 1000 members donate $1000 each — that amounts to $1,000,000.   Your contribution of $1000.00 will be recognized as your name will be displayed in the KCCP Community Center.  “Chun-Chun-Yee” started this year and as of today we have 12 payment and pledges.

Your donation of $1000 could be broken down into monthly installments on a credit card or divided into several payments by checks payable to “KCCF.” It’s akin to skipping a drink of soda in the afternoon for one year. You all can surely eliminate that sugary stuff from diet to stay healthy, while your participation in the “1000 Squared” campaign will help ensure empowerment of our children in the future.

Please fill in the donation form and return it in the enclosed envelope. Your heartfelt generous support will be remembered in many generations to come!!
