APAC Annual Gala & Awards Dinner

One of APAC’s signature events is our Annual Gala & Awards Dinner. This spectacular dinner and awards ceremony is one of the premier events in the San Diego Asian American Community, as community leaders, business executives, nonprofits, and elected officials come together to recognize significant leaders in our community who influence change and champion civic engagement.  We recognize rising stars and seasoned community figures with award, as well as provide scholarships to deserving students.
