Thank You for Another Great Fundraiser

On Saturday, May 3rd, The Spot, Asian Health Services Youth Program and Banteay Srei, collectively hosted a fundraising dinner to kick off Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month by honoring the five amazing API womyn founders of Banteay Srei. Over 160 people gathered into the Oakland Asian Cultural Center to enjoy the evening’s festivities, which included, Korean drumming, Okinawan music, spoken words, and vocal performances. Guests were treated to food provided by Champa Garden and an amazing assortment of desserts from Le Jarre.  Sherry Hirota, CEO of Asian Health Services and one of the original seed donors of Banteay Srei, delivered the keynote address for the evening.

The highlight of the evening was the celebration of the five amazing womyn founders of Banteay Srei, Jacqueline Wong, Elizabeth Sy, Jennifer Lee, Chanda May, and Manith Thaing-Rice, who came together 10 years ago with the idea of creating a safe and supportive space for young Southeast Asian women who were impacted by or at-risk of sexual exploitation. City of Oakland Council President Pat Kernighan was there to present and honor the five women on stage. Since its inception, Banteay Srei has served hundreds of young women and has become the national model for working with commercially sexually exploited children (CSEC) of Southeast Asian ethnicities. The evening’s speakers also included youth from The Spot, Asian Health Services Peer Leaders Program, and Banteay Srei.

In addition to celebrating the work of the five founders of Banteay Srei, we also wanted to honor the commitment of all API womyn leaders in our community who continue to work and advocate for the healthy development of our young people.

Our fundraising goal for the event was $20,000. We are just $1,940 shy of our fundraising goal.  It’s not too late to help us reach the goal! If you were at the event and were inspired by the work that is being done for our young people in the community, or if you didn’t get a chance to attend the event, there’s still an opportunity to support the organizations and our work in the community. Here are some ways to help us reach our goal:

  1. Write a check payable to: Asian Health Services / memo: The Spot/Banteay Srei Fundraiser and send it to: 299 13th Street, Oakland, CA 94612
  2. Donate directly through our website. Please indicate The Spot/Banteay Srei Fundraiser as the designated reason for donation.
  3. Come visit our programs at The Spot/AHS Youth Program and learn about other ways to support all of the youth programs and services housed at the center. For more information about Banteay Srei, contact Nkauj Iab Yang at nyang@banteaysrei.org.

To those who have continuously supported our organizations and the work we do throughout the years, we Thank You! Your contributions and support is one of the main reasons why our programs and services continue to exist for our young people.

In addition to all the people who came out to the event to donate and support, we want to send special thank you’s to the following sponsors, donors, and supporters of our event.
