Dear Friend,

As the Chair of this year’s Gala and on behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to invite you to consider participating in the Korean American League for Civic Action (KALCA)’s 15th Anniversary Benefit Gala.
This year’s event will truly be a celebration on many levels. First, we will be honoring two champions of the Asian American community who are beacons of leadership and civic participation: Congresswoman Grace Meng and Don H. Liu, Esq. KALCA has had the privilege of having these two outstanding individuals as friends and it is our great honor to celebrate their successes, commitment, and passion to inspire our next generation of civic leaders.

It is also a very special anniversary for our organization. Fifteen years ago, our forward thinking and passionate founders came together to imagine a future where our civic leaders would be as diverse as our communities and Asian Americans could feel empowered and prepared to pursue careers in public service and public interest. In less than two decades since this bold dream was conceived, KALCA has invested in and empowered over a hundred student leaders who have gone on to improve the lives and rights of millions around the world and in our own communities.

This is what KALCA is all about. KALCA educates, empowers and engages our Asian American community and the next generation of civic leaders. We inspire, connect, promote civic participation and invest in our next generation. We help build a future where America is better because we have the most qualified, informed and passionate Asian Americans as participants and leaders. However, to continue this vision and to sustain our programs, we need your help.

In the upcoming weeks, I and one of our KALCA Alumna from the Class of 2009, Juliette Cho, would welcome the opportunity to talk to you about how you can partner with us in our work. You can reach out to us at [email protected].

We are so appreciative of your support over the years and know we could not have started or continue this journey without your partnership. We welcome the chance to count you as continued friends and look forward to celebrating with you on Friday, March 20, 2015. Thank you very much for your consideration.

Very truly yours,
Judy H. Kim
