Friends of Wa Sung

by Karen Dea

If you focus on the true meaning of Wa Sung as a non-profit organization, its mission of community service is committed toward the East Bay community.

In 2012, a substantial number of participants took the opportunity to touch and be touched by donating $250.00 each to be part of these charitable activities by proudly participating in Friends of Wa Sung (FOWS). Collectively, they donated $4675.00, which cost them .34 cents a day!

Here are the touching benefits in supporting the Wa Sung Charity Fund:

  • Merit/Scholarship Awards (provides on average $12,000+ a year)
  • Charity Grants (a jumpstart toward East Bay community service projects)
  • Educational Grants ( schools, science & students programs are rewarded)
  • Oakland Asian Cultural Center (our annual 'A Chef’s Delight' a food & wine fundraiser awards OACC as the co-beneficiary that provides cultural programs to the Asian community)
  • July 4th Picnic (free community picnic for Wa Sung members & friends)
  • Santa's Visit (celebrating with carols, and toys with Santa visiting over 700 children)

In appreciation of the Friends of Wa Sung, free CD13 event tickets with special VIP recognition reception were provided to them at the 2013 "A Chef's Delight" event!
