But lets not forget about some of those karaoke performances. If you weren’t there, here are some of photos we took from the event. We hope you keep coming out and have with us at Asian American Association! For more pictures from the event check out the Photo Gallery tab!

Asian American Olympian Receiving Recognition

The first ever Asian American Olympian, Victoria Manalo Draves, is going to be honored in San Francisco, CA this weekend. Draves won two gold medals in springboard and platform diving in the 1948 Olympics.

In order to compete, Draves changed her last name to her mother’s maiden name because she was rejected previously due to her Filipino name. Draves went on to compete nationally and eventually at the Olympics. As a San Franciscan native, the city dedicated a local park in Draves name after she passed away in 2010.

This upcoming weekend, there will be an unveiling of a plaque in recognition of Draves accomplishments in athletes.
