Support ASC by helping us reach our 2022 Fundraising Goals!
Asian Solidarity Collective's 2022 Fundraising Gala is a celebration of six years of rooted work towards collective liberation and our continued work of healing and transformation within the communities we serve.
The gala will be a formal elegant event held at the outdoor courtyard of the United Domestic Workers of America. There will also be an indoor hall for additional seating which will have doors wide open facing the courtyard to ensure there is fresh airflow coming in from outside.
This is primarily open seating. You are welcome to sit with whom you feel most comfortable to be seated alongside. If you have a seating preference including preferred outdoor seating please contact us at least 2 weeks prior to the event.
Dinner and Refreshments
We are excited to provide dinner catered by Salud! Catering, a well known and historic San Diego Taco catering company in San Diego. Salud! will be serving delicious options of Carne Asada, Veggies and more. We will also have a bartender providing you with specialty drinks including soft drink beverages.
Since this event has an outdoor setting and will end promptly at 8:00 pm (with an afterparty till 9pm), you may want to bring a light jacket towards the end as the weather could possibly change as we approach the evening hours. While this event is in the early spring, the weather can be unpredictable so please prepare for a change of venue and/or postponement. The venue has 4 outdoor heaters ready for usage should the temperature drop drastically.
While we are a local grassroots organization located on Kumeyaay land (also known as San Diego, CA), many people and organizations from other cities informed us that they would like to attend our event. We are sharing a list of accommodations in San Diego on this page that are fair unionized hotels. We'll be working on getting a group rate at one of the hotels and will announce this soon. We're also working on including a list of places to visit should you wish to get acquainted with San Diego.
Covid-19 Safety & Disability Justice Values
The last two years have definitely been a challenge as we haven't had too many in-person events due to the global pandemic. We're excited to have a celebration with all of you in-person as we intend to continue to keep to our disability justice values by organizing an event that ensure the safety of all guests as much as possible with requests for all guests to wear masks, sanitize hands frequently, do a temperature check at the door and highly encouraged requests for guests to be fully vaccinated with boosters. Social distancing at this event will be highly encouraged. Stay home if you are unwell. Should there be an increase of covid-19 cases in San Diego, CA this event will transition to a virtual event and you will be contacted.
For food and accessibility accommodations please contact us. The entrance to the event is an accessible entryway which is on the side of the building by the parking lot.
Live ASL interpretation will be provided. This event will also be recorded and will provide captions for a later viewing for people who were not able to attend our event in-person.
