APAC Annual Dinner & Awards Ceremony
and Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Celebration
APAC’s signature event is our Annual Dinner and Awards Ceremony celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. 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 awards, as well as provide scholarships to deserving students. We will also be celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.
Mark your calendar for our 11th Annual Dinner and Awards Ceremony on May 6, 2023!
APAC’s Annual Dinner and Awards Ceremony will recognize individuals and organizations who have made a difference in our community through civic engagement; support APAC’s civic and economic empowerment initiatives and leadership development programs; select 2 recipients of the Tom Hom Scholarship; and kick off Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.
