Union is Strength!

We did good at the AMCU Benefit Lunch! A total of 45 guests attended, including 5 children.

Guests enjoyed learning more about AMCU, glancing through the AMCU brochure and participating in a friendly quiz! The kids enjoyed the balloons (and some got their first taste of a soft drink...!). Bookmarks beautifully calligraphed by Andrea Leung with the message "Union is Strength", doubled as the tickets.

Tal Mukhopadhyay (our youngest member!) welcomed everyone. President April Lai, Vice President Shiella Estrada, Treasurer Sujata Visaria and Manager Clarence Lee addressed the guests.

We were also excited to have a chance to re-connect with founder members Raul Puentespina (Enrich) and Marinne Tsang (Asian Migrants Centre).

We raised about $10,000 through the lunch. In addition we have also raised approximately $10,000 in donations this year. For a list of our donors, please go here. We have not met our fundraising goal yet, but every bit counts!

Thanks to Suki Law and Andrea Leung for their hard work. We could not have pulled off this event without you.

And thank you to everyone who attended, everyone who donated, and everyone who has supported us along the way.
