More than six hundred guests celebrated the diversity of Asia with co-chairs, Kathy and Glen Gondo, Helene and Stephen Le, and Sultana and Moez Mangalji, and honorary chairs, The Honorable Theresa Chang and Dr. Peter Chang, at the sold-out Tiger Ball.
The evening paid homage to honorees Sylvia and Gordon Quan, longtime Asia Society advocates. Guests enjoyed cocktails, Chinese performances by Dance of Asian America, a sumptuous Pan-Asian dinner and decadent desserts, an impromptu hula lesson from Ka Pā Hula Nā Pua O Kamali’i Polynesian dancers and one-of-a-kind big board auction items.
Exceeding the fundraising goal, proceeds topped $1.2 million and will support Asia Society Texas Center’s 150+ public programs. Next year’s Tiger Ball is scheduled for March 1, 2019 honoring Phoebe and Bobby Tudor.
