Thank You for Aspiring to LEAD!

Thank you for Aspiring to LEAD!

Last Thursday, March 12, Asian American LEAD (AALEAD) hosted our Aspire to LEAD lunch fundraiser at Woo Lae Oak Restaurant with 180 guests in attendance. While we “aspire to lead” throughout the year in various ways, our lunch was a special opportunity for community members to learn about the impact we are having on our youth through stories and live testimonials and how they can choose to lead in their own ways.

A huge thank you to our Board members, Table Captains, staff, volunteers, and amazing community members, for allowing AALEAD to raise awareness on our work and impact, as well as funds, to help move our organization forward!

We would like to give a special thanks to all our elected officials who were able to join us:

Virginia State Senator Dave Marsden
Fairfax County School Board Member At Large Ryan McElveen
Fairfax County School Board Member Sandy Evans
Fairfax County Sheriff Stacey Kincaid
Town of Herndon Councilmember Grace Han Wolf
On behalf of US Senator Tim Kaine – Manassas Regional Director Joe Montano
On behalf of US Senator Mark Warner – Outreach Representative Anh Phan
On behalf of US Congressman Gerry Connolly – Outreach Director Mike Collins

Thank you to REI Tysons for their generosity in providing parking space and the staff at Woo Lae Oak Restaurant for their service and support.

We hope that you will continue to stay connected with AALEAD! For more photos and updates, please make sure to visit our Facebook page, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram accounts for the latest updates.
