We can’t wait to celebrate the Year of the Pig with you!  AAFE’s 45th Annual Lunar New Year Banquet, one of our community’s cherished traditions, takes place Thursday, March 21, 2019 at Jing Fong Restaurant in Manhattan’s Chinatown. The gala is an opportunity to connect with new and old friends, enjoy delicious food and great entertainment and, especially, to support AAFE’s community development mission. 

For AAFE, it’s a year to look back on the accomplishments of the past 45 years. as well as to celebrate a new era of leadership.

A lifetime achievement award will be presented to Yee Ling Poon, an AAFE founder and longtime community activist. We will recognize Gregg Bishop, who as commissioner of the NYC Department of Small Business Services, has worked tirelessly to support immigrant entrepreneurs. And we will honor two inspiring “next generation” leaders who are showing that the dream of equality is very much alive — State Sen.
