Chase Grant, New Plans, and Fundraisers
Hiiiii Everyone!! It's been a long while and thank you all for being so patient. Now..time for an UPDATE!!~
The $250k Chase Grant. Unfortunately, Sam Wo did not get the grant. My family and I would once again like to THANK YOU ALL for your support and effort in getting the word out. Again, we really felt the love.
However, we have been very fortunate to have been receiving a tremendous amount of help from Chinatown Community Development Center (CCDC), Asian Neighborhood Design (AND), and AmOne which could not have happened without the help from David Chiu's office. To say the least, a lot of meetings and brain power was used the past few months to obtain approvals for the new plans for Sam Wo in order for the building and kitchen space to be up to code.
And. To make a long story short, we will not be using any public funded money to renew Sam Wo. So, last but not least...
There will be fundraising events!! The first fundraising event will be held on Saturday, Sept 29th, 2012 at the Donaldina Cameron House in SF Chinatown. It will be a luncheon from 12-2pm. Details of the event is TBA.
