Letter from Reverend Cheng Imm Tan and Kay Dong
Dear AWFH members and friends,
We are honored to be co-chairing the annual benefit fashion show “CelebrAsians” for Asian Women for Health (AWFH). Please join us on Friday, October 9th, at the Korean Church of Boston, PC (USA), 32 Harvard Street, Brookline from 6:30-9pm to celebrate this special occasion.
AWFH is building on the success of the Asian Breast Cancer Project and expanding to become the one and only peer-driven, community-based organization in New England dedicated to advancing Asian women’s health and wellness through education, advocacy and support.
This benefit fashion show is one example of how AWFH is finding innovative ways to engage, empower and enable Asian women. Twenty Asian cancer/trauma survivors will share their inspiring stories and aspirations as they model and showcase the creations of leading Asian designers.
As co-chairs, we have witnessed the impact of AWFH at a personal and professional level since its inception in 2012. The work of AWFH is crucial to improving access and service delivery for underserved and at-risk Asian women, and has mobilized hundreds of community members, providers and policy makers. We are working together through educational workshops and state-wide conferences – and we can’t wait for you to experience the power of AWFH with us.
Please consider becoming a sponsor/advertiser/exhibitor and contribute to this worthy cause. Be a champion for Asian women’s health and a supporter of AWFH!
